Does anyone have a load for 1 oz in these hulls? Does the 072sg16 wad work?

The RST hulls are excellent but the SG16S wads are preferable over the SG16 for 1 oz loads in 2 1/2" hulls, as they ...

Don't lengthen the chambers.

1. 2 1/2" shells will not pattern as well in a 2 3/4" chamber

Lefever sidelocks have been oft mentioned and celebrated here, but do we have anyone here who shoots a D.M. Lefever boxlock (not the Nitro Special)?

Just curious. I've never set eyes on one.

Are you going to make a straight grip stock?
