Light gun weight works against attempts to control recoil.

Your friend needs to be clear about his goal. Possibly he needs both lighter gun weight and recoil reduction. Not unusual when...

This is true, and the very reason to prefer the old-style crimped type. They pattern as differently vs the CCI as do shotguns with full vs cylinder choke.

If you take the time to pattern test,...

In my testing the old-style crimped shot cartridge, lacking shot capsules, patterns tighter at distance. The CCI capsule type is better through a smooth barrel.

"Accurate, clean, reliable" is relative with respect to .22rf ammunition. Then, didn't read anything absolute into the question.

As already suggested, CCI Blazer. "Best value". We use Blazer...

Guess nobody's heard of Herters. They do not interchange. Actually, there were two types. But you can purchase an adapter that allows you to use the RCBS type.

206967

Prewar M-42 skeets are especially ugly. And lots of fun on skeet or SC fields.

A pump is as slow as its operator. A semiauto is as fast as its mechanism.

Assuming you meant "quiet" (ie., the 710 fps segs). Getting same 3/4" at 25 yds. This is through two Ruger Americans and a 64 Anschutz.

At 25 yds vertical stringing accounts for the outliers...

Sounds like we had the same lot. ES same. Lows same. But did have a few over 1100 fps. No CCI-SVs did that......well, not on that day.

I bought a case after reading some glowing reports here. My GECO "bolt" is reliable, decently accurate. The lubricant is vaguely reminiscent of Eley, ie., kinda messy.

But my lot demonstrates...

Nothing shoots better at distance than close, not even a .50. But relative rankings can change. Both my 64 sporters slightly prefer Eley subsonic HPs at 50 yds over the CCI (0056). But at 100 yds...

Another vote for sub-HPs. CCI or Eley. My issue with HS stuff is the loss of "surgical" accuracy. It outweighs gains in terminal effect. A partial exception might be the HS and Hyper-vel...

David, That might be part of the reason. But I've done the pattern tests with #6 vs #7.5 through "full" constrictions. The larger shot adds about 10 yds of effective range. This effect, ie.,...

The .410 is no popgun.

Most grouse killed in Maine are not taken by wingshooters over dogs. In fact, they're mostly ground-swatted and tree-wrenched. If you walk along paper country and gravel...
