To preface this, I’m a bit of a recoil junky the more it kicks the better. I’m looking at using 7 .45 caliber round balls to make a sort of super buck shot. That should come out to about 2.144 oz of payload. Which is within the max for a 3.5 inch twelve gauge. Does anyone have experience with a load similar to this, that might be able to give me some pointers in developing this load.

Since it is doubtful many or maybe even any, others have worked with such buckshot; you should take whatever you develop and get it properly tested. Tom Armbrust still does it for $5/shell and he requires 5 as a minimum. After testing then you will know what your shell produces in many areas such as pressure, velocity, standard deviation, etc. Be safe.

Good luck.

thanks, I'll make sure to use that, it sound well worth it. $5 a shell for a test is a lot cheaper than a hospital visit.

The final advantage to having safe & properly tested loads, is that you could then publish the data for others to try if they are also "recoil junkies". Let us know what you find out as I am interested solely from an "academic" point of view because I am recoil averse in every way! :oops:
