9/16 oz of 9-1/2s

Postby hawglips » Sun Oct 06, 2013 4:19 am

Went out yesterday with my 28 gauge CZ Woodcock to pass shoot some swamp woodies. This is my first time shooting this load - 9/16 oz of TSS 9-1/2s at 1425 fps. I had her choked with cylinder on one barrel and improved cylinder on the other.

I just flat missed the first three shots trying to get my feet positioned correctly in the mud and waist high water, then settled down and killed the three bird limit in the next three shots, including a double and one that got by me going away, at 30 yds, out of the cylinder barrel. No cripples.

Geeze Hal are those muffs a permanent attachment? Every pic you have posted you have them on LOL !
Well done, I would love to have that recipe. 9-1/2 shot?, 1425fps is faster than my normal 1350 fps.
1 lb divided by 9/16 oz equals 28.4 hulls per pound equals about $1.70 per hull for shot.....Gr888!!!!!!!
Was there any pellets left in the birds at the 30 yard distance were they shot at?

The older I get the more I value what hearing I still have left....

I didn't find any pellets, but didn't really make a close examination either.

I sent you a PM.

As a young man I worked in steel fab shops and later ran heavy equipment and did a lot of shooting in an indoor range, I can still hear but not well, you are making the right move.........
