Default Re: "Boar" gun

Don, I already have a mess of 14 ga wads for the Collath...

Al, I got em at CircleFly...

I have two options really- Make the brass smaller or make the projectile larger. I may do both and see what 'works'.

I like the Guilani (sp?) slugs mostly because I can buy them 'over-the-counter' but also because nobody I know makes 16 gauge slug molds. Of course I could have a custom one made, but mostly, if you have to ask "How much?", you can't afford it. Still, shooting the Flying Beer Keg is the goal, so I'll be doing something custom sooner or later.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill for wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
