  • Longest favorite load, in my case, 20ga

    Favorite loads change over the years. Most of us have brand loyalty. What I'm referring to is a specific load. For my 20's my go to load hasn't changed since the 70's. Complete with selection wisdom. Notice the small print at the bottom. Hunting ducks next weekend (with a 12ga) so I'm grabbing dads A5 20ga and calling & gunning some crows today.

    Yes, in sixteen gauge, I'll shoot just about anything I can get my hands on, but my favorite load is 1 ounce of #8's ... of course! !
    In shotgun ammo, I prefer Winchester ammo over Remington. I really like any Win AA ammo. They're about the best reloading hulls available.

      Win AA is my 12 ga small game/dove load. IMG_1990.PNG prefer Fiocchi golden pheasant in 12ga for roosters but they aren't exclusive.

        I can’t say that I have a favorite, so far I’ve been able to miss with everything I’ve tried.

          When I am in New York, stores stock the best selection of Remington. I have tried a lot of others over the years and they all shoot good. Winchester always seemed a little higher than Remington, maybe because we were in Remington Country and Remington ruled. I shoot 12ga and 16ga.
          I have some 3 1/2 " Black Cloud but I don't have anything they will chamber.

            Winchester XX is my preference for upland both 12 and 20 , I use hevi-shot for waterfowl. When I was a kid I had to buy my own shells and usually bought the cheapest shells I could get. One day after school my mother had two boxes of Winchester 2 3/4 #6 sitting on the counter in the kitchen. She told me she thought I might need some shells. Used those shells for the next couple years and been brand loyal ever since. Now days I mostly load my own shells except for waterfowl.

              You mean you're supposed to actually "hit" stuff?
              WOW! All this time I thought "shotgunning" was just shooting your shotgun!

              Well, kiss my grits!

                My favorites were WW Expert 7.5 and 6 in 12 or 20.
                Back in the 80s.
                Good reloadable hull, great wad, decent charge of hard shot.
                Patterned great and stuff fell dead.
