The Curmudgeon receives many requests for his own pet loads and many of his personal favorites are published through Load of the Week. Our ballistic lab has gone a step further and is now making it even easier for you to load some of these tried and true loads. You, too, can be a Curmudgeon in the field.
The ITX-10 Pocket Master Package is based upon a load that has garnered many full limits over the years. It is predicated on the Curmudgeon's light and fast philosophy: 1 ounce of ITX-10 at 1500 f.p.s. or, for a bit more comfortable shooting, it can be loaded at 1350 f.p.s.
Whether you are upland hunting or shooting ducks over decoys, this is a loading package designed for high-levels of mid-range shot lethality. The components are lab-picked for an easy-to-load cartridge with no filler wads or column adjustments necessary. Two velocity variations are provided to customize the load to your specific game and application.
ITX-10 "Curmudgeon's Cuvee": For the first time ever, the Curmudgeon has included his special blend of ITX-10 which consists primarily of ITX-10 #4 shot along with a small percentage of ITX-10 #6 shot. This particular combination has been very effective in the field and it is not available for purchase in any other format. The Curmudgeon is intrigued by the three-dimensional pattern density of this particular pellet combination, which creates an increased pellet count while maintaining lethal pellet energy over a broad spectrum of the three-dimensional shot cloud.
