Default 10 gauge Punkin Balls

Got my two new round ball mold from Tanner Moulds in the UK last week . Finally got around to casting some yesterday made fifty of the .775” and fifty of the .735” . The larger will work in my EH 28” and the 26” barrel was of my Grade 1 10 gauge two barrel set . The .735” should be safe in all of the tight chokes 10’s I have at the present . Today at the shop I loaded ten rounds of both sizes in brand new Cheddar Cheese hulls trims on the Robert’s Industries trimmer . Cheddar Right primers , 30 grains of SR7625 , a BPI wad with the petals removed , five 1/8” 12 gauge cards then a punkin ball after which a roll crimp . The larger ball did okay although POI could be closer to POA . The .735” balls however didn’t look decent at all .

I think the smaller one thru the tighter chokes needs some masking tape perhaps .

Yesterday I fired the guns from a sorta rest off the front rack of the ATV . Today I shot two pair offhand at the same target . But I think I can work with this .

Charlie- the larger ball likely did better because of the tighter fit through the 20 gauge barrels.

Maybe a wrap of mylar around the ball will tighten it up enough?

Mylar won’t stay with it that we’ll going down the barrel . I just loaded eight of the .735” balls four with two wraps masking tape and four with three wraps . We will see what results I get with that this evening or Friday morning .

Just tried the .735” balls with two wraps of masking tape . Not horrendous but not great . Only three on the box , offhand btw.
