I forgot to mention that the distance to the target was measured at 40yds.

The pics below are the results of those 2 loads. they are the same recipe as my #3 duck loads just larger shot size and therefore more powerful.


   FIRST PIC STATS.
 MUZZLE ENERGY-------------------------- 23.31 FT/LBS PER PELLET
TOTAL # OF PELLETS IN LOAD --------------110
# OF PELLETS INSIDE OF 30" CIRCLE 76 OR 69.09%

# OF PELLETS IN FRINGE------------------------ 19

TOTAL # OF PELLETS IN KILL ZONE 95 OR 86.36%

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 PIC #2

#  OF PELLETS INSIDE 30" CIRCLE------------------------------80  OR 72.72%

# OF PELLETS IN FRINGE       ---------------------------------------22

 TOTAL # OF PELLETS IN KILL ZONE ----------------------------102 OR 92.72%

  As is clear from the results the second shot is more acceptable than the first , since the distribution is a little better and there are more pellets in the kill zone. I only Had 2 loads to test and I am not overly satisfied with the results because of the pattern in the first load. I will most likely test some more next spring and if they are consistently more like the second load they can be used as they are , otherwise they may have to be tweaked to fit my gun. This load, however may have a much better pattern in a different gun.
