#1 is what I keep in my truck gun. I to shoot a 20. Things seem just as dead as if I had shot them with a 12

Doesn't matter if the pellet comes out of a 410 or 12 gauge at 1250 fps they have the same power.

Until recently over the counter 20 gauge came in #2 or 3's only.
After #1's that are.30 caliber things get too tight to go larger in the 20 gauge.
Standard modified on a bore gauge for the 20 mics at .600 different manufacturers will vary slightly.

Dumb question. I shoot them through a double barrel. One barrel is mod, and she ne is full. Any danger? Hadn't blowed up yet.

I may need to see if I can order them and ship to VA if they shoot well I would put in my 20 gauge and let my son get used to it before switching to a 12. Thanks for sharing. What yardage do you pattern your guns at ?

No such thing as a dumb question .
Full by the book is .590 that is getting mighty tight if two .30 get side by side down the barrel.
Most likely in the full the pellets would get flattened and cause flyers.
I definitely wouldn't try it with an extra full turkey choke.
American chokes tend to run more open than European models.

This is the Trulock site and gives you actually diameter for their chokes.

CB guess what.... They switched my county to be able to use rifles now... Dog hunting is on its way out I would venture to say within the next 10 years.

I have custom made chokes I think I told you before my 30 inch 12 gauge guns shoot almost like a rifle.. I never shot a 20 gauge so not sure what kind of yardage and pattern to expect. That gives me a good point to start. How is the killing power on deer ? Kids here have shot deer with # 3 buck and dropped them or either they ran like h E L L for a long distance lol

That's the beginning of the end.
Follow the money they slowly weaned us.
The irony is to watch the camo clad city hunter show up with a AR-15 or 300 mag and you can't see past 50 yards.
They will look at you like your nuts for toting a shotgun.

You are exactly right.. I love my dog hunting but lately its became a headache with these young guys doing stuff thats making it harder on everyone. I don't know whats going to happen because as long as its .23 caliber and over its fair game if i remember what the rule book said.

No different than a 12 the shot to powder ratio is the same on both.

I use to use federal and Remington much shot and seems something has changed and quality has went downhill... The cheap Winchester shells shoot great and hard so I've been using them. This may be a good alternative brand you posted for 12 gauge too.
