That is a semi concern on my quail lease,,,, hence we encourage double barrel 20 ga instead of 5 shot 12 ga. guns. Probably this year we will ban the 5 shot 12 ga.

I gave up my five shot years ago and quit shooting doubles..

one of the reasons Hevishot is so popular in small calibers

It will probably be cheaper to shoot lead and pay the fine if you ever get caught.

I like Bizmuth for non tox. I load it myself to save a little and I feel better shooting it through my twice barrels. Nothing smacks down like lead though


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE
