Here is one source:

Again, ONLY after a reputable smith looks at it.

If you do not have any reputable smiths in your area, go to doublegunshop.com and join the forum and ask for help there

Good luck

PetahW I will look those loads up and see if I can find them locally.

I did shoot the gun today. It worked very well with no problems. I used those estate loads. So I am happy I didnt pay that much for a wall hanger..

You used loads that are WAY too much pressure for that gun. You are playing with serious injury as those barrels or that action - with those high pressure loads - can let go at any time, removing body parts you would rather keep

Bigdinfl I don't have a problem getting loads that where recommend here. I will be ordering a few boxes next week.
But I just had to try the gun. And it works so now it probably will be a safe queen but I still want to have a few loads ( the right ones for that gun) on hand so if I want to just go out with it. I have a Mossberg 500 12 gauge that I can use those loads I picked up yesterday. So they won't go to waste.
Thanks for your advice.
