Alright... so I have been blindly shooting the cheapest load (Fiocchi 1/18oz #2 @ 1500 fps) for the last 3 seasons since I picked up my new Weatherby SA-08 shotgun. I am now going to test 12 different loads. Here are the particulars:
Shotgun - 12 gauge Watherby SA-08 Black Synthetic
Choke - Carlsons Waterfowl Mid Range Extended Choke - Modified .705
Loads - See Picture( Not shown - 3", 1 1/4oz #2 1400 FPS Federal Speed Shok and 3", 1 1/8oz #3 Fiocchi 1500 FPS)
I will be taking two shots, one at 30 yards and one at 40 yards, for each load with a standard 30" circle. I will also be using a fixed rifle rest so the shots are always at the same spot.
I will post up my results with pictures. Should be heading to the property on Sat or Sun.
