Hello I got seven more 2¾” shells to test for pattern and velocity. I’m doing the same thing as last time, shooting a round at seven yards (21 feet), and a second at 14 yards (42 feet), and the real tight patterning rounds, a third at 21 yards (63 feet). Three from Hornady; Hornady BLACK 8 pellet 00 Buck Hornady Critical Defense 8 pellet 00 Buck Hornady American Gunner 8 pellet 00 Buck Two from Federal; Federal Power Shok 12 pellet 00 Buck Federal Vital Shok 9 pellet 00 Copper Plated Buck with Flight Control wad And; Remington 9 pellet 00 Buck FIOCCHI 9 pellet 00 Buck I’m shooting a Mossberg 930 SPX off of a rifle rest. Chronograph is an Oehler 33. Skyscreens centered 10’ from muzzle. First the Fiocchi rounds. Although they were very fast, patterned very well, and was very light on recoil, this translated into a round that doesn’t generate enough pressure to cycle the Mossberg 930 action. So this is a pump gun only round. The Hornady ammo was very fast and patterned nicely. I didn’t have enough targets to shoot all of them at 21 yards, but I did shoot the BLACK at 21 and it did pretty well. When shooting the BLACK at 14 yards the wad stuck itself onto the target. And when shooting the American Gunner at 14 yards I encountered something very weird. There were only two holes on the target and the wad made a hole off to the right. The velocity reading was a little over 1800 fps. So I circled the two holes and the wad hole and shot another round. That time it looked a lot better. So I wonder if somehow only two pellets wound up in that particular shell.? The Federal 9 pellet 00 with the Flight Control wad did very well out to 21 yards. The Federal 12 pellet 00 round patterned a little better than the Remington counterpart. The Remington round did what I expected it to do. Just a good solid round. That's it for now..
