    Has anyone chrono'd S&B's 12-ball 00 buck? I'd like to figure out the recoil from this load in my Stoeger coach gun.

    Are you talking the Clear plastic hulled rounds that are longer than standard unfired 2 3/4" rounds? I have a couple boxes of those and could do a chrono run if it warms up a bit.

    MOVING THREAD

    An interesting and worthwhile question has been asked. I will look forward to the answer(s.) However, since it does not touch on handloading or reloading, it is being moved to the Shotguns Forum.

    They have been chronied before and usually wind up around 900-950 fps. More lead, less velocity. They have a pretty wide spread as well, probably from the lack of a real shot cup or buffer.

    IMO they are excellent home defense rounds.
