    so unless you being a right dork and trying to stuff in more than will practically fit..you WONT overload a case. and the wee sinkers from warehouse actually have weight written on them
    I think its the 1/8th oz ones we use for drowning worms.
    perfect micky wieght for wieght rather than guestimating volume.
    you missed my favourite tho ''triple ought buck'
    i just love the way that rolls of the tongue especialy the dukes.
    the problem lies in that cases are not the length they say ie 2 3/4 is closer to 3 and a bit and 3 inch is 3 and a half almost to allow for the crimp.
    but it could also trap a novice into stuffing more in than he should but sticking to the wieght for wieght route is safer.

    I think can’t see myself using the 20g enough to justify buying a reloading setup for it I do like the idea of swapping out the birdshot for sinkers or whatever I can find sounds simple enough and the defiantly have a wad.

    Last outfit that had Remington was "OUTDOOR BRANDS" in Penrose Auckland. If you want anything out of the ordinary needs to be ordered 12 months before you want it. Hopeless outfit that does their best to dodge warranty claims.

    Think I have one of the old lee loaders in 20g in the garage somewhere you are welcome to borrow it to test your theory.

    Many years ago I gave a hind both barrels of buckshot from a 12 ga at about 20 yards range. I will never try it again. 10 yards max I reckon.

    Fellow shooter with me on a trip back in the 90's to shoot a smaller species of deer (cant say where) had a Winchester pump and put 3 rounds at/in it of buckshot before it dropped.
    From memory it was the defender model and if so it would've been a very open choke so not so flash maybe. No further than 20 yards I believe.
    Why do the Americans love them so much? Must be tight bloody scrub to get the best out of them. I also realise that they shotgun only seasons and some of the new slugs that are being brought out look truly devastating.

    Slugs for game I reckon.
    Reserve the buckshot for sawn offs carried by stagecoach guards and similar close range defense.
