    Yes Sir, 27 lead balls traveling at about 1325 fps will definitely leave a serious impression on the bad guy!

    15443630714787167859282287636256.jpg we also resemble that remark. Like cooking each of our chili recipes differ slightly but the base is the same Mossberg + Federal :)

    Running doubles with the Shockwave - I put 2 loads on each target from 28ft using Federal Tactical LE 9 pellet 00 flight controlled, results were fairly consistent......My target is printed on typical copy paper (8.5"X11"), image is 6.75" ear to ear (proportionally accurate) as the average human head is 6 to 7" wide.

    I have used Rio quite often over the years in game loads always satisfied. Last year I ran across a small hord of 20gauge, in #4 buck, they are excellent shooters, im stingy with them.

    I ran a few doubles today using my go to load, Federal LE Tactical 00, all shots were fired using my SW from 21ft using Casey`s 8" Dirty Bird targets....at 21ft this load barely opens up, and as usual I tend to pull my shots a bit high but still effective.....

    I ran some Federal Power Shok 00 (1325 fps) and #4 buckshot (1325 fps) through my SW from 21ft using Casey`s 8" Dirty Bird targets....The 00 was giving me about a 4" spread and the #4 was about 6". I can see why so many like a #4 load for HD, it gives a nice spread and hits as hard as the 00.

    I ran a few doubles today using Fiocchi low recoil 00 (1150 fps), all shots were fired from my SW at 21ft using Casey`s 8" Dirty Bird targets....This a soft shooting load and produces a nice spread.

    This is one load of Federal 7.5 shot (1200 fps) fired from my SW at 21ft....I can`t give an exact spread, but figure it was at least 12". Not for HD unless your using Grandpa`s goose gun :)
