I took my son and nephew jackrabbit hunting in Hamilton county. I was trying some different loads but none of them worked well for out set up. Basically, the shots were all about 40 yards. They were using IC and I was on a mod choke.
Next hunt we will all use full
I tired a 9 pellet #1 buck load... Not good at that range... Too sparse
1 oz #5 load... Seemed to be the best but didn't have great penetration
1 oz #6... Meh. Great up to 20 yards.
So, for big, heavy TX jacks... What should I be stoking my 20 with. Yeah, I may switch back to a 12 with heavy #4 loads but the kids can't handle that yet.
