Hi Brit, just curious if the .63 is in fact a Pedersoli 20 ga as all three of mine run that size ( .63 )
Yes, all I shoot now in my .63 Pedersoli SXS's is OE 3Fg. 70 gr's to 75 gr's does wonders!
Yes sir. It's all but a 20g.

Less powder more lead shoots far kills dead has been a mantra for me for years. The other day Blackpowder TV posted a video on you tube shooting a 20 bore Carolina gun. He was shooting at a Turkey target a Turkey load. Staring with airy grains 2 f he worked up to a hundred, one and a quarter oz loads. To my surprise the most shot put in kill zone was by the largest powder charge😳
Should I change my mantra? I think it might be fun to try
I generally stick to the " mantra" when using fine blavkpowder but when using course powders I find I have to use more powder. Shooting at an old gate post one day and having pellets bounce back at me made me realise why I wasn't killing critters with course powder!
