I had this conversation with LSU last year. To be clear I'm not calling him a lier I've just never heard of anyone using a LEAD #4 3" shells that patter with "ethical" patterns at 60yds. Most people shooting 4s I've seen are pushing it to get a round pattern at 45-50 much less 60.

I have also shot and patterned a few lead 4s in a few guns and seen the results. Again not his gun or choke though so anythings possible.

It would have to be...

But to answer the man's question, I would go with a jelly head .660 and Hevi 13 #7s.

copper coated #4's, buffering agent vibrated into shot column before crimping, velocity is just over 1200 fps will produce a 65% pattern at 60 yards, I need to look at some of my old reloading data to find the exact powder and numbers of grains, it was a 1 3/8 ounce reload, nickel #3's would pattern even better back when they were legal

Right but that's hand loading not off the shelf.

65 % of the load you mentioned would be about 118 or 119 pellets. What size area were those pellets counted in?

I agree.
And sometimes even more amazing is hitting something with them when your target presents at 15 yards instead of 50! \:D
