Re: ? for the Big 20 XL/fed. hull guys

I'm referring to the original 3inch big 20 XL for 1 5/8 ounce shot. Most load this shell using the Fiochi hulls but I'm loading it in the Federal. My finished load is 2 1/2. The Fiochi are around 2 5/8 finished. Just wondering what others are getting in this load as far as oal.

Re: Franchi Affinity 20 gauge and TSS?

I trim 1/8 off new hulls. This leaves me 1/4 over the osc when ready to roll. Tried it without trimming and the shells wouldn't cycle cleanly through my affinity.

Re: Micah on the wads

Yes. I believe its around 1/8 inch that I cut off. Could be 1/4 tho. My dowel that I use for this is home and is marked where it needs to be cut

1093 fps and 10722 psi
Will that load cycle ok in the Affinity? Did Stubby not shoot good in it?
That is what I shoot in my Affinity. No problems so far. The birds don't like it tho.

Re: Benelli M2 Pattern Results with Indian Creek 569

Re: who's hunting this weekend?

Good luck to any and all that still get to hunt. I'll be working tomorrow so my 1 kill will have to do. Had a few encounters this year but nothing like years past. Gonna be a long 11 months to ponder what happened this season.

It took a few days to figure out the birds on the new lease. It's starting to come together.

Re: who's hunting this weekend?

Put the hammer on a pretty good one this morning. I'll post the pics later. I've been every day this week and today was the 1st day a bird showed me some attention. If this weather will stabilize it could be on for the next 2 weeks here. Also stopped by one of my old stomping grounds around lunch to...

Way to go Hal. I'm sitting here on pins and needles waiting on Mon. am. Birds have been sounding off good in the mornings. Hopefully I'll be of some help in the near future.

Re: Franchii Affinity 20 patterns ICBDS .555

I agree with all that has been said. I usually don't get into the whole numbers game but after shooting these patterns I figured I would show them to you guys and see what ya'll think. From looking at others patterns I could see 150 averages with these shells but the counts I'm getting just lead me ...

Re: Franchii Affinity 20 patterns ICBDS .555

Going by Hals shot chart there should be around 347 or so pellets in the 1.25 Hevi 7 shells. I'm gonna count the 25 yard pattern when I get a chance cause I believe there are way more than 347 pellets on that sheet of paper. I would say most of the pattern hit the poster board. This range I'm using ...

The extractor came out again for the 3rd time. I bought the gun new in 06. I believe the hole where the plunger and spring go are wore out and I need a new bolt assembly. Brand new parts went in it the last time and has been working fine ever since until my shooting session last week. First shot of ...

Re: Franchii Affinity 20 patterns ICBDS .555

I ordered 4 boxes from MPW. 3 of those have the same lot #. The odd lot# shoots the lowest. I've shot 3 shells out of it and all were low 170s. The other 4 shots have came from the same lot. Whats the chances of me getting smaller shot in these loads? Looking at the holes in the paper something just...

Thats after polishing the crap out of that barrel. These were shot at around 55 degrees also. My 1187 with 26" pipe will throw the same pattern. I took the 1187 out one day last summer with the temp around 95 and shot a 236 and a 242 with my last 2 shells from last year. Sure didn't know they were g...

Win ER 3.5" 2 #6 10" @ 40yds. The 1187 has broke again so I put one of my chokes in the 870. Gonna run with the 20 this year but you always need a backup.

I've shot this combo a total of 7 times now and 5 are very consistent.(mid 170s to mid 180s) The 2 patterns that have me scratching my head are 2 shells from the same box with the same lot# as the other boxes I shot. I even counted the holes twice and counted the snowmen...
