MEC old bars

This is a discussion on MEC old bars within the Shotgun Reloading forums, part of the Shotgun Forum Discussions category; I drilled out a MEC bar to take TEXAN 7/8oz bushing. It works. Haven't counted pellets...don't intend to....

I bought one from a gun store that carried these in stock as a regular item.

Bought a bunch of Texan bushings at a gun show for $1.00 apiece. Works great.

If you are busting clay probably not. What is significant if you are hunting is the number of shot that impact the animal or bird. Killing effectiveness is determine by the number of shot that strike the game at the moment of impact. Each pellet that strikes contributes to the killing shock of the hit. At 60 yards a #4 lead shot pellet has about 3.09 ft-lbs. It is suggested you need 6 ft-lbs for a clean kill. One pellets is too little, you need a two to ensure the kill. With steel shot, because it is lighter, the pellet count needs to at least double, possibly triple. Personally I find shooting duck out past 40 yards, with steel, is a bit over reaching. - Gun Nut

IMHO giving up 17% of your pattern density is significant.
