I like Mark = oregunner's remark;
After my 62 years of hardcore clay shooting and bird-duck-goose-wabbit hunting, I have learned a lot but it's all condensed into a sum total of past, present, & future cliche's.

See the bird, shoot the bird!

For the longest time, I was enthralled, nay consumed with trying to perfect my loads, trying to perfect my shooting skills before I even got to the club so I kept shooting light-heartedly. Today I walk on the sunny side of the street because I don't shoot registered targets anymore.

In the past, I got very frustrated trying to break them all, be better than the rest, but it all came down to another well-known cliche'. If you're not having fun, why are you doing it?

If you're going to reload remember the rules, be consistent, be accurate, be safe!
If it is not a published formula by the powder manufacturer, don't mess with it!
PS: Concerning powder drop, avoid static electricity with your reloaders.

That is why I quit playing golf. Now I get to break things and it makes me happy!

We probably shot targets together or hunted close by each other during waterfowl
season but the love I have for just shooting (all these years) continues to run through
my veins . I guess it's all the friends I have met in different places , I wouldn't trade
them for anything as the laughter and friendly faces is just to dang hard to replace !

What ever I do , I do to win but even with a sub-par day it only takes a smile to
keep me going for another day .......Here's a :lol: for You as I hope it works ?

Needless to say this thread is an education in it's self. :)

My 20 gauge stash of 20 gauge hulls consist of Win AA hulls, and a boatload of Active hulls that are in new, never fired condition both in 2 3/4 and 3". Not sure what I need the 3" for around here, but I got'em :) these Active hulls were almost free and being the tighwad I am I just couldn't turn them down. The ones I have loaded seem to be just fine. Yes, these were obtained years ago before they went under. A local dealer had them and just wanted them out of the store. :)

My 12 year old son shoots in his Browning Citori CXS Micro:
- Rem GC hull (or AA or Rem. C&F)
- Winchester 209 primer
- 14.4 gr Alliant 20/28
- Claybuster CB 1075-20 wad
- 3/4 oz reclaimed shot

It's a great super clean load!

My 12 year old appreciated the gun club 3/4 ounce with green dot and CB wads with win primers. He shoots a tri star semi and I was pleased to see it still cycles. In fact, it doesn't throw them very far so its easy to pick up. a small difference from the 1 ounce loads we were shooting but every bit helps.
also nice he enjoys reloading with dad.
