LOAD OF THE WEEK

Z16 wad: Pheasant Eliminator II

 

The Curmudgeon is preparing for a pheasant outing in a rough western part of Iowa. He will be utilizing traditional pheasant shotguns: a Parker 16ga and a Browning Citori Lightning 16ga.  The Z16 wad provides some outstanding load results, which we have coined Pheasant Eliminators.  These loads allow the Curmudgeon to dominate the field.  (And now he is sharing them with you.)  

 

Load note: Nickel-Plated lead shot adds lethality to every load and The Curmudgeon prefers these lightweight and fast loads.
