    How far will a Browning BPS 12 gauge field model, 30" barrel with a invector modified choke reach shooting Remington 3" high speed steel shot? Just say you are shooting duck or geese, how far out before it's no longer a kill shot?
     
  2. ACB, I don't know the answer to your question, but I've been through England 3 or 4 times in the past week. When are we gonna meet up at Subway or Sonic?

    Let me know next time your planning on coming back through. I will be off from the 23rd till the 4th. Friday and Saturday I will not be here but other than that I am always here.

    Depending on shot size I would say 35-40 yards max, for a dead killing shot and that would still be iffy...d2

    Patterning it will be the only good way of knowing. I kill birds dead with 3" #4s at 40 yards all the time, BUT my gun has a very tight pattern so I get a high pellet count on target. I'd rather get alot of small shot in one as only a couple of large ones. I'd start with 2s and 3s to see what it does at 40 yds, if it does good with 2s, start increasing shot size until you get poor results.

    Not sure about range on that setup, I shoot browning gold with waterfowl full choke and can easily kill birds @ 40-45 yrds if not further. Do this using 3" #4s black clouds. A good huntin buddy of mine is from England you may know him or his family the Jordans? Ryan Jordan?

    I know him, not personally though. If I'm right his sister is Ashely, went to school with her from kindergarten to Graduation. She's 30, same as me.
