I was curious to see if anyone on here had one of these barrels? I recently got the older style 20" ported barrel and was gonna try to find a good load for it. I am planning on starting out with 100 grains of powder and the 250 grain shockwaves. Any advice would help. Thanks!

I don't have one, but I would think 100 grains would be a bit much in a barrel that short.

Turkey hunting, the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

The barrel is rated to shoot 150 grains but there is no way I am gonna try that one! I have found a few articles where they were shooting it with 150 grains and a shockwave and it was getting great results. I called prbullet last week and they are shooting one with 105 grains loose 777 and a 360 grain hollow point bullet. I really dont think I want to shoot one that big though. If I can ever make it to the range I will post some results

my only advise would be , to take the shockwaves and throw them in the trash!!! they shoot very good at paper , but will not leave a blood trail to save your life. jmo
its about that time

What he said.

Use powerbelts and powerbelts ONLY.
Spike bucks come with their own meat skewers.

Alright, I'm here now who wants my autograph??
