    a skeet shooting buddy gave me about 3lbs of BB lead shot last week, just loaded them up into the 12 gauge, some 1 1/4oz loads. Not really sure why but had never loaded BB size before so I made a box; going to test them tomorrow and see how they pattern. seems like a good kitty cannon shell or similar sized pests.

    Kept about a pound of them, will have to try them in the .410!

    I think BB is 50 pellets per oz so 24 would make sense for the 1/2 oz load data in the diagram of the .410, thanks for that picture
