Default RE: shotgun load 12ga need load

what will you be shooting deer or birds?

on deer I shot 120 grains FFF,21 #4 buckshot.
on turkeys 120 grain FFF,1 1/2 oz. copper plated #6 shot.
hope this helps.


I am not a hunter I am a whitetail population reduction specialest

remember keep your back to the sun, your knife sharp, and your powder dry.

Get a 1.25 ounce shot dipper.
One dipper 2F
overpowder card
lubricated cushion wad
on dipper # 7.5 shot
overshot card

This is a place to start. Different variations of your load will change the pattern.
