That is insane numbers. I can see why you limit the recoil exposure. Lol
Welp, time to get a magneto speed... cushion wad hit my chronograph and destroyed it. More bummed that I didn't get a reading as it was the best load yet. Likely over 2000 fps
I read your post, very interesting, as I have the exact shotgun that you used. I also have not so fond memories of lighting off my Barrett 82A1 without the muzzle brake on it. Never again.
I will be 66 in April, I would shoot it at least once just so I could say I did. lol
I'll be 54 in May. I've never broken my shoulder. I'm glad to say, I've never broken my shoulder
Up next for testing. 1.5 oz or 656 gr slug
6 ready for testing. Unfortunately it's raining today and supposed to tomorrow the 656 gr are loaded with 210 gr of RE17 and the 615 are 225. Likely won't/can't test all six in one outing for safety. Will get them all tested and post results.
Snuck in a test on my lunch break (buddy lives right down the road from my work)
No signs of pressure with a good result. Only a 210 gr charge here. If the other two test good I'll work up
I don't like beer... 656 @1831 FPS. Working up!
That thing is a MONSTER!
WHAT A WASTE OF BEER!
I pee'd my pants when I saw this photo! Hilarious.
Good squirrel rifle.
Forgot to post this picture!
Dang boys! This is a new record! 656 gr slug @ 2270 fps. 7507 ft-lbs of muzzle energy and 202 lbs of recoil! Seating depth plays a huge role in the better performance. With the lighter JHP, due to the slug shape I was only able to seat them maybe 3/16". With these new slugs, I have a much bigger window to play with and had these seated about 1" into the case. With a heavier projectile, with less powder, I was able to greatly improve performance. This was only 220 gr of powder and I broke well past 2000 fps. With the 615 gr slug the max charge I've done was 225 gr and only got 1970 fps. I'd describe the recoil as "brisk" but not incredibly bad.
