Do you have any plans to make a large sized bird gun (smooth bore).

I am thinking about a killer goose gun here.

buckshot loads also.Ed

Here is picture of our cases and regular brass 12ga case
showing how much stronger ours is. Ours in pic is the one fired 36 times, Also the regular cases in whatever gun fired in
was expanded so much it wouldn't go into bottom of sizing die.Ed.

Did more checking on Encore at gunstoredid some measuring. They will work with a longer and
a real heavy barrel and a weighted thumbhole
buttstock.And long barrel to get weight and get the blast away from shooter. If I did one I'd make it 20
pounds at least. they will handle moderate pressure
with heavy barrel, muzzle same size as breech, so
that it will hold rifle type loadings.barrel would have to
be alloy barrel like big bore ones we have on Savage.Ed.

Check on 10ga and 12ga NEF Ultra Slug guns. Barrels are
large diameter, but not alloy. I think use barrel breech
section for a monoblock and put in long heavy 12ga alloy
barrel, and treat the monoblock to higher strength. Use a
weighted thumbhole buttstock and with heavy barrel get weight
up to 16-20 lbs.Being break action and large cartridge,
barrel should be 32+ inches.Ed

Moloch--That would be interesting to shoot, and
it would be your undoing unless you hung big weight on the barrel.Build one in big revolver would be better to get weight needed....Ed.

TPAW-- it should handle charging rabbits. I may find a
smoothbore, see if good for geese with a 2 1/2 oz
load and good velocity.Ed.

We tested a 870 gr hard, cast slug that Greg
Sappington makes. Got it to 2300 fps at moderate
pressures. Lightened it with hollowpoint got it to
2500 plus, with no leading. Here is picture of three with
one in a case.Ed.

Had a question about my cost per shot--
For me using 5 buck per lb surplus powder,
hard slug 70 cents, primer 24 cents,
adds up to $1.15 per shot.
Using 20 buck, canister brand name
powder makes it $1.75. Not bad considering the
power we are getting.Ed

Well there are folks who have made 12 ga pistols.
I am out in country with range so I don't bother
anyone. The muzzle blast would really bring the
proceedings at a populated range to a halt, for
a while. Ed.

This picture of original Savage and the heavy barrel
that I put on it shows extra weight and length.
The action is shown in the heavy maple stock I used.
The original was light plastic stock.Ed

First Freedom-With that many posts your doing fine.
I will never get a tenth as many posts as my interests
are very narrow. Back to 12ga..I took
Bridger 750 gr solid banded hollowbase bullet
and shortened the nose. Actually made a slightly rounded
nose solid of 500 gr. With hollowbase it was still
a decent length, at one inch.I got it over
2800 fps, at my moderate pressures.Just doing a little
experimenting. Everyone got designs and wants
their ideas for slugs tested, so we do it.Ed.
