    @SA: good work bro!!
    What's the dia of the bull?? and dimensions of the chart?? will be helpful...
    and if you have a chance, try it at 20 and 30 meters!! most hunts are made in this range, so thats y a bit curious..

    a very creative experiment SA sb.

    Atleast the spread tells us not to take a DSA shotgun on a duck hunt. Will closely meet the requirements of a quail and partridge hunt..

    Good Work SA.

    What i can observe is, that the SG shot are placed above the target.. And when you going to lower #s, the shots are getting lower side too.

    And, please you should add your own experiance what you conclude from this ?

    And Bro, Keep it Up!

    Excellent test and great initiative! Not just informative but also quite practical.

    Well done, SA! Nicely executed. :)

    The aim was at the center of bull.

    The planned distances were 10M, 20M and 30M, but doing the 10M test which involved going to the target, changing charts, taking pics, coming back to the shooting place and doing this again and again, was enough to deplete all my juice. I just didn't have any energy left in me to conduct the 20M and 30M tests. These tests were conducted between 12pm and 2pm and during all this time I was thinking of Gilani Sb and in my mind praising his effort to consistently do this for our benefit.

    Regarding the size of target, well it's a typical chart paper available at almost every Stationery shop. The spread of SG from 10m was around 12-13 inches.

    nice 1
    good test report
    Your test with bird shot should not exeed the 45 yards limit coz thats preffered one with full choke.
    From the 10m result im 100% agree with kakar sb. View
    For partridge and quails u have got good spread and group with shot #4.

    I always used to wonder about the number of pellets in different shotshells and their varying spread patterns. Thanks for the visuals, SA, sir.

    A little confusion on my side here: Is SG and 00 Buckshot the same thing?

    Thanks SA bro, its intresting n practical aswell...... next time (may be in winter ;) ) please try to do only one load each from bird & buck shots but with different choke constrictions and from 20+ meters, that will be very usefull for the hunters on selecting the right constriction.
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    #8 results are somewhat disappointing, :( breaking apart too much at only 10 metres
    what you guys think??
