For real??? :o Is there still space for powder or do you just throw the shell itself at the target?

Excellent pattern :thumbup:

MMMMMMM ..now that got me wonderin' about what it would take for my 3" Mossburg pump, to get a pattern and shells similar, as I "No Nutin' " on reloading and it just would be nice to try it ;) :o

Same O, Same O, 1st hand seeing is believin' :thumbup:
ever wonder where the white goes when the snow melts??

It has a little pop to it for sure, not like I was expecting at all. Just stout, not a punisher like a Longbeard.

Personally I though the recoil was enough for the Big 20 XL but after seeing the patterns for this load I think I could learn to live with the punishment, way to go Hawglips, You never cease to amaze me. The velocity on this load blows my mind, only you..............Is there a end to it?????.........WELL DONE!!!!!!

If that won't kill a turkey I don't know what would.

WOW....I had to load 2.25 oz. 12 gauge loads just so my 12 would out shoot my 20gauge 1 5/8 load. There is no doubt in my mine that this load will outshoot my 12 gauge now.

Stout is fine in a beer; not so much in a 5.5 lb gun.

I’m sure Hal’s new load will be a smashing hit.
