Thread: 20 bore non toxic for duck, recommendations please

    20 bore non toxic for duck, recommendations please

    I'm looking at an evenings duck flighting later this month, but slightly surprised to see that unless going down the tungsten matrix route, the majority of steel loads in 20bore I could find were very light at around 24grams, I would appreciate any recommendations you may have........
    given that I fully intend missing quite a few (in the interests of conservation you understand) I don't really want to be paying 30+ a box for tungsten so was looking at steel primarily, unless anyone has any surplus they are looking to sell.....?
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Eley VIP Bismuth 28g 4's 25-30 box

    Tungsten 30g 5's 46 box round my way now

    20bore steel is rubbish unless you can get hold of any Remington 3's

    I'm using Eley VIPs and as long as you get the shot on target and it's not too long the you will drop them!

    Thanks all, bought some gamebore 24g steel as that was what was available, so we will see.........knockdown capabilities of the various media for non toxic round are a bit irrelevant when you shoot like I do......so very little point firing multiple worth of bismuth or whatever into the sky!

    I have an older Beretta 686 in 20 bore, fixed choke at & , not steel proofed.
    Am I limited to just steel clay loads, or is 24grams of 6's or 5's ok ?
    It would only be a few rounds on ducks on the lakes I shoot around.

    You'd be fine with any steel upto 28g 70mm.

    Steel in a 6 is equivalent to a lead 8!
    You want to move up 2 shot sizes with steel
