Yea there are tons of info on the longbeards but the problem is they have recently come out with a magnum version. Not much info comparing the 2.

The original 3" has 1 3/4 oz lead with 1200 ft/sec. The new magnum 3" has 1 7/8 oz lead and 1050 ft/sec. I'm curious if the extra lead in the magnum version is worth the 150 fr/sec loss in velocity and whether it impacts the pattern at all. This data is for the #5 shot
