28ga for hogs/possibly deer.

Postby bullet225ho » Tue Dec 29, 2020 12:57 am

Hey folks,

I'm about to put an order in for some waterfowl/turkey loads and want to add in some heavier stuff for bigger game. I'm stuck between BB and T?

most of my shots are within 50yds. This will be mainly for hogs, but I wouldn't rule a deer out either.

Thanks a bunch.

I'd probably lean towards T if you are loading a relatively heavy load, or BB if you want to go lighter.....

Hal,

Have you ever heard of or would be concerned about shot bridging with that big of shot in the 28? That's one thing that scares me a bit.

I know you have tons of feedback from users...I was just curious now that the thought hits me.

interested in the bridging too. But would you shoot this choked, or just from a cyl or IC anyways?

Also I'd think with bb and T in a 28ga, the physical stacking based on their large sizes might be important, like with buckshot?
Can't wait for success pics!;)
