bear loads - #1 Buck

Postby hawglips » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:39 am

A couple guys have been playing with heavy bear loads and tried some #1 buck.

Here's a 60 yd pattern of 2.6 oz of #1 Buck through a 10 ga and .767 choke....

I don't even want to know what a #1 buck ballistically hits like.

I can't wait to see the results from that round on live game.

The idea for these guys is to be able to stop a charging bear in it's tracks. I'm certain it will do that.

Ok, So curiosity got to me.

as per KPY this load (if traveling at 1100 fps) will have a total ft lb of energy of 1952.28 at 60yds.

Thats if all 18 pellets hit said target....Wow That's a lot of energy.

compared....10ga 18 pellets of 00 buckshot lead load traveling at 1100 gives 1,328.4 ft lb of energy at 60 yds.

so 624 ftlbs more energy than a much larger lead equivalent.


Here's the kicker.... TSS has 12.44" of gel penetration
Lead 00 buck. at same distance 7.58" of gel penetration

Can someone provide me with load data for the 10 gauge and where I may purchase TSS Buckshot, preferably 1 Buck?
TIA
