Iv read in a book I have on predator calling the prefered load it copper plated bb shot in the 10, im sure hevi shot make a goose load for it, I was 2 sec from buying an HR 10ga single shot that must have weight 5#, but after shooting one in 3 in 12 with a turkey load and full choke im sure glad I didnt! But I would like very much to have a pump or semi

That stuff is 6.50 per shot! Ain't no elfin way! Thanks for the link, but I mean good old lead #4 buck. I can't seem to find anywhere to get it, and unless hevi-shot calls me someday with a sponsorship, I will never use their ammo. It is priced out of reach for most of us. Me ,anyway.

$64.99

For the price of all that why not just buy a shot shell press and a bag of #4 buck just load your own. Shotgun shells only use a small amount of pistol powder, after you get a small supply of factory stuff you could have a whole setup, look at a Lee load all. I belive thwy are 50$ plus shells, shot ect.

Winchester #2's or Federal BB's pattern fantastic out to 55 yrds. Mine with a Hastings 685 and a 30" tube my brothers with a Kicks 690 and a 26" tube. A fox won't get thruogh the pattern at that range. As for the HR 10 it has an iron rod in the forearm to help with the recoil, if it only weighed 5 lbs. the rod was taken out. Mine weighs alot more than 5 lbs. Winchester makes the best #4 buck load I've found and Federal the best 00 buck load. Both are a little hard to find. Another option you might want to try is the factory modifed choke and Steel T shot. All the testing I've done this is a solid 50 yrd. goose combo and the T shot have enough weight and size to dump any coyote inside that range and recoil is alot less. You won't find a better choke for steel than the factory mod. my brother and I have tried about everyone made. I've shot alot of geese with that combo but not any fox or coyotes.
