12ga Cutshells
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:35:17 AM »
I have seen 12ga screw in choke barrels explode just due to lead buildup at the choke area.  I saw this video and wondered what the pressures might be at the muzzle.  Anybody ever do this?

 [cool]  Wonder what the actual range would be and still be effective.

A friend used this to 'flush' a flock of geese that were on the water out of range -- worked, but they went the wrong way

they were maybe 150 - 200 yards off

Yes, some people have a couple of cut shells when they rabbit hunt, just in case they come in contact with a deer/hog. In season of course. d*

Here is a thread that discusses some of the concerns I had about pressures:
