as ,you should be shooting , with enough energy to kill them Dead in the Air and save on powder with a nice smooth shooting
load that won't effect your shooting as the season goes on !
By using the proper shot-size , you would have the best of both loads , 5's or 4's for inside 35 yds and 3's or 2's for shooting
on the edge of 50 yds !
I like your way of thinking .........

I have twenty pounds of #2 steel ready to load and would like to know some of the pro's and con's of using 2 3/4" loads. I'm sure I'll have to purchase a new 1 1/8oz shot-bar for my Steelmaster because all recipes seem to point that way.
Would like some input from some green-timber hunters who have some good 2 3/4" load ideas.... I'll be loading with Steel powder since I have close to 20 pounds on the shelf.
Performance results and some good wad suggestions would be nice also.

Did you grow up anywhere near HWY 204 South of Cash?
