    (maybe not the best...for my money the 1 1/8th oz load of #2 or #3 doing 1550fps is pretty plurry hard to go past)
    the light loads are plurry LOUD but kill well
    been there and prooved it while getting the young fella used to the .12ga
    we then went to 30 grm////// 1 1/16thoz factory loads from gamebore
    not because they were better but because making reloads with a old whackamole loader takes time and not all shells resized properly so ok in the single barrel but gave issues at times in other guns.
    that loadis a cracker doesn't boot to much and is a proven killer on geese and ducks in 2 and 3,s outdoor adventure even had it in 4s to if I remember right.
    .the 3 inch 20 gauge blackcloud load pure and simple is a shoulder smackin arsehole of performance in 2 shot on anything smaller than a medium sized Canada goose.
    it might be ok in 4shot but believe me shooting at funny angles with it aint much fun if the 2 shot load is anything to go by.

    no the 410,s still exempt which raises more questions than it clears up.

    what really fucks me right off is f&g are big on science and latest infomation to bash,[ and rightly so] certain areas, and PRACTISES IN FARMING.
    but when it comes to us licence buyers 93 buks a year gets us f&g land sold to doc and a rangi bloody survey of 1,000 odd shooters from 2009 and thats considered good enough info and cause ?????
    YEA FUCKIN RIGHT

    3" 20 guage is a bit of a hard case...sort of like the 3.5" roman candles in the .12ga
    you push a big payload out of small bore and its going to hurt,either of those shells with smaller payload wont boot the same.
    push a 1oz load out of either and it will be mild...up the .20ga to 1 1/4 and you starting to ask a falcon to fit into a minis parking space,the payload will be longer and harder to get moving as it has to squeeze its way through.
    push a 3/4 oz load at 1300fps out of ANY of the guages with same weight shotgun and felt recoil SHOULD be similar the pattern board would be interesting.
    trouble is and always has been when you get lightweight gun and feed it heavy loads.

    Remington wouldn't know lightweight if it bit them on the arse but even so you feel the buggers
    ...up the .20ga to 1 1/4 and you starting to ask a falcon to fit into a minis parking space,the payload will be longer and harder to get moving as it has to squeeze its way through.
    i,ve shot a lot of the Winchester 20g 3 inch 36 gram copper plated 4s and 3 inch fiocchi 2,s
    believe me the bc 3 inch steel load makes these look like pussys in the felt recoil stakes only unfortunately.
    I,l try any load they bring if its available in useful shot sizes I hope I'm wrong but my gripe is I doubt we,l get the choice we get in 20 g lead or 12 steel I doubt we,l get f all choice to be honest.

    mate if you want a real tooth loosener...try some rem hypersonics (preferably in a shotgun you dont own) faaaark those puppies are naaaaasty. used up the half box I was given and never ever again. they were fed through my pump which was a heavy bitch to begin with and Ive added nearly another lb to that to help dampen recoil. I had 3 or 4 times where I short stroked action....or maybe the shells got shook up so much they didnt feed????? I would hate to think what they would be like in a light single barrel break open gun.
    the winchester XPert loads are a nice load and I was stoked to find them at reasonable price this season.

    funny you should mention hypersonic someone offered a case of them in 12 g 2 shot for 300 buks said maybe I could move them on to some goose hunters or the nzgbh.
    guess I know why.
    my worst recoil experiences was the 375 h&h a snider carbine and a 28 inch barrelled 3.5 inch chambered extrema with mammoth 2 ounce loads.
    the h&h pushed, the snider lifted you up and said back the fuck up ,the 2 ouncers literaly hammered you dizzy and made reconsider you life choices,.
    firing 3 rounds left me curled up in the dirt in the foetal position crying for my mum

    some poor unsuspecting hick from the Canterbury plains
    I went and brought more mikee cos it was the only steel available and was told I needed it for the lake last year.
    but that's been sorted and doc are gonna follow f&g rules now til its phased out I guess.
    the rem 870 in 20 is no lightweight but some overhead shots with the blackcloud had me thinkin I was shooting 10 gauge out of a tooth pick.
    I'm askin the distributor about prarrie cloud fs steel it comes in a 7/8 ounce load of 3s or 4s sounds more accomadating than the heavier black cloud load

    sorry that should read prarie storm theres a game and target steel 2 3/4 inch load that should be interesting for decoying ducks pidgeons whatever depending on price.
    quoted about 39 buks a box for the prarie storm upland steel load plus maybe some freight 29 for thw 2 3/4 load.which comes in 6s or 7s.
    maybe have some by January next year more like febuary maybe
