Blindside Shot Revisited.

I said the stuff is not worth the money and did not
kill the ducks I shot in a different thread.

I did use it some for policing up cripples and this is what I noticed:

1. It makes big holes just like they said and if hit right it knocks the dog stuffing out of a duck.

2. The holes are about 3 times as big as the same sized round shot makes.

3. The holes can be as big as a 00 buck shot if the breast bone gets hit in the center and all the tissue affected is blown away resulting in a hole the size of my thumb, this is not good if eating vice just shooting is the intent

Accordingly, I intend to use the rest of the box for shooting things I do not wish to eat.
Crows maybe?

    Do a Knitepoet type range test on some of your outdated WI winter fashions, maybe the stuff is good for self defense on the November-March 2 legged troublemakers up north.

    It might work well for a fox or that snake in the snake thread.

    Since I have to use a shotgun on base, maybe try it on squirrels.

    Doc:
    That's funny, I left WI in '65; that stuff is long gone.

    You KNOW where to find some on your next trip up to WI, start snooping. I am sure Clean would not allow such a closet full of stuff to exist in your house:tooth:.

    That's about what I fond, Ned. It will absolutely turn a duck into a flying cardboard box when you square them up with it, but my paper patterns with the stuff were erratic at best. I have missed some birds with th stuff that just should've been dead to the shot and, as you discovered, also seen some wild damage when you hit bone.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    That is the problem, it is almost SOP to hit the breast or the duck flies into the next county
    unless of course a wing is hit, then you have a cripple and that can be a problem with divers.

    Interesting concept. Looks like they're trying to turn shotgun pellets into wadcutter pistol bullets. I hope somebody at Winchester's Skunk Works decides to apply this concept to lead and shot sizes ranging from BB to #1 buckshot for 'yotes and goblins.

    I believe I have seen that concept of square lead birdshot; it was used in some
    type of spreader load to get open choke patterns from a full choke.
