Any one have a line on some low recoil 20ga buckshot. 00 000 0000 good hd round.
I am only aware of #3 buck being availible for the 20ga and have never heard of any low recoil for it. I am not up on the latest rounds but a lot of guys on this site are and will jump in if they know of any. Could be all kinds of new mess out there for a 20ga that I don't know about.
From the site: "FINALLY, viable, effective buckshot rounds for the 20-gauge shotgun are available. 8, 00, buckshot are loaded into a 2 ¾ shell and run 1,100 fps from a 24 barrel yielding 1,175 foot-pounds energy. These rounds are new manufacture by Paraklese Technologies, llc, a federally licensed ammunition manufacturer. This round is perfect for turning fast handling, 20 gauge shotguns into tactical/home defense weapons. This loading compares directly to the Remington, Managed Recoil,* 00 buckshot load for a 12 gauge!!!"
If you try it, please post a range report. This is the only load I know that is not #2 or #3 buck.
The round the are comparing it to is what I keep loaded in my 590. If it works even close to as well as the Remington load, it would be one heck of a HD load.
Thanks for the link and input. It's for my 10 yr old son. I need a low recoil round to help him become more proficient and then step him up to the good stuff.
JD - thanks for that link
Tech 51, Yes, let us know how the stuff works. I can't remember seeing any buckshot loaded in a low brass shell and not sure how 00 will group when being clustered coming out the end of a 20ga barrel. If you get good results I will try some as I build 20ga tacticals and have yet to find any load other then #3 buck to recommend to my clients. Would be nice to give them some options.
I use #3 Buck in my 870 Wingmaster right now, Its about all the choice I had for buckshot,
for the 20ga,
I have a slug barrel on it and it is very nimble and light weight, I think too many people dismiss the 20ga. and always go for the 12, The little 20ga. can be most deadly.
The 20 gauge is indeed deadly. I put most of my female students in a Remington youth model and they perform very well.
I have seen the Paraklese Technologies 00 buck loads advertised before. I do not understand how they get 00 pellets to stack and fit in a 20 gauge shell.
As far as the regular suspects go, the only thing the big makers put out is #3 or #2. Federal loads the #2, but only in a 3" shell, definitely not low recoil.
#1 buck would stack in a 20 gauge shell, similar to the way that 000 stacks in a 12. 8 pellets of #1 buck loaded in a 2 3/4" shell at moderate velocities would seem to me to be an ideal 20 gauge buck loading. No manufacturer agrees with me, however.
