Shot through an H&R single shot, 32” barrel full choke at 40yards. Chrono at 1325-1350fps, standing, shooting off hand, cross wind has been pressure tested and field results, kills ducks, geese, doves:

I have read similar loadings with bismuth shot (1 7/8oz I believe) and pressure tested within safe pressures.

Were the Tukey loads 3" or 3-1/2" and what shot type and weight were they from the factory. Did you just use the hulls or did you use the factory powder charge and wad also?

They were the 3.5” 10gauge federal 2oz hw15 loads. 2oz exactly of shot, wax beads, buffer, Flight Control Wad, and 53 grain of factory powder. I subbed in steel shot (1.55oz) and took up space with the factory wax beads. I’ve loaded this with copper plated B steel, 1’s, 2’s and 3’s now in 10. The pressure is around 7,200 average, room to add TSS OR HW15 back in. I shoot a fixed full h&r barrel, a rob roberts mod in the BPS, or a terror tube in the gold10.

I’ve also done the same with federal 12gauge 3.5” 1 7/8oz, hw15 loads. Making straight steel (1.375oz) 1’s or B’s or with a duplex with tss 7’s and B’s. (47grain, I believe). Those hammer geese. I like 1’s and B’s in a Mod to Improved mod choke.

The 10gauge out of a H&R single shot or Gold 10 is softer to shoot than a BPS 10 with a limbsaver. But if guys want big bore options with a little TSS, this is an easy option.
