Has anyone worked with bp and steel shot ? To Duck hunt you have to use a non toxic shot , so I am wanting to try a bp load with steel for duck and geese .

I haven't tried it, Rowdy, but I can't see a problem in trying it. Undecided

Velocity would be less so steel might not carry far enough. Huh  Perhaps NICE or ITX kind of shot would be my choice to try.

The BIG limitation would be the chokes. What I would expect to work best would be

1.  Modern steel guns

2.  Open chokes of modified or more open

Sir Charles
Yes I will have to work with a ic or maybe a modified choke . As for the steel in the gun  ,this is a China made shotgun . And it does have screw in chokes . But the barrel is an American made barrel . Years ago when they made the change from lead shot to the non toxic shot we had to learn all the hard lessons about steel shot . The long barrels and FULL choke was a thing of the past . And everyone hated the new steel shot and that was the way it was .

Fall Turkey season is almost here . The plan is to get the long barreled 87 out with my trusty bp loads and smoke me a turkey . Now let's hope  Mother Nature don't change the plan .

Read an article 'bout a fella shot his very first Turkey.  Shot it in the Frozen Foods section of the Supermarket.  Scared the BeeJeezus out of everybody.

Not only vintage but quite rare. This is a Burgess folding shotgun from the late 1800's...

I have several Burgess shotguns, here is another that is even more rare. It is an original salesman's sample cutaway

What shotgun are you planning on Turkey Hunting with ? I have used a TTN double with 26 inch barrels in the past and it worked fine . Now I want to take a few birds with a 87 .
