I have been sitting on these too long.

I hope someone can use them.

Any idea how much it would cost to ship to 48356? These are all 2 5/8" correct?

I used the quick UPS tool. Says about $27 to 48356. But I will be using the system at work, and we get way better rates at work. I didn't weigh the box yet either and guessed at 20 lbs.

Great
Please take a cleaning rod and some water/windex to clean the bores when
they get caked with black powder residue.
Have a wonderful hunt

Mike

Thanks, Mike. How many shots between cleaning would you recommend?

You can shoot 25 + shots no problem. These have fiber wads, unlike Goex which had a line of BP that used typical plastic which melts in the bore and left long strips of melted plastic to deal with. I have a case myself and have a lot of fun with them, although some dogs don't like the sharper report at first.

Thanks for the info. Iíll probably shoot one box just for fun. And, Iíll bring a few boxes to the Southern SxS to shoot in the black powder event. Iíve been reading about 67mm shells in 65mm chambered guns. I donít plan to shoot these in my 65mm hammer gun, but it does seem 67mm shells are designed to work in 65mm chambered shotguns. I also noticed that my B&P F2 shells are also 67mm. They are too hot for my old hammer gun. I wonder what the general opinion is here.
