Thanks Dan, it's sure easy to shoulder and accurately fire quickly.

JackRyan, good to hear the little Lee molds have some durability built in, my 000 buckshot pellets aren't pretty, sprue marks, mold part lines and well as the little 'snip' marks from using the end cut snips to separate them, that okay, they're harder than a whores heart and fly good, at least to 20 yards anyway, which will cover most any defense scenario, Buddy said I need to get a 36 inch piece of cardboard and see what they're doing at 50 yards.

Thanks, got it, this time I used the Full, Mod and IC choke tubes, the mod shot about 1.5" tighter at 20 yards over the other two, had some old loads with the factory Hornady 000 buckshot, very pleased to report the 000 buck I cast shot tighter than the Hornady, although the Hornady shot is very pretty and uniform, this 22 BHN hard buckshot alloy is going to be perfect for home and farm close range work, it chronoed 1241 fps, in the case of near two ounces of hard 000 buckshot, I don't believe 1250 or 1300 fps is going to matter to the recipient ; ]
