    I used to have a dog that loved to run rabbit in a field. I'd use a single shot 16ga. A Stevens. Still have it, tho it's looser than goose snot now. Can't imagine why.

    There was a field load of mixed #4 and #6 made by Federal that worked great.

    I just watched the movie on Sunday. My wife says I am now less intelligent since viewing it.
    But I know to........ " Consult the book of armaments " before use
    She is correct. Cannot remember the last time I saw it but I know I’ve seen it at least twenty times in my life.

    I only have a 12 gauge.
    Recently equipped to handload shotshells.
    My intent is to load all steel in light, fast loads, and larger-than-traditional shot.
    #4 steel for squirrels, #2 steel for rabbit.
    Spreader wad in a 12 gauge should help. I used to make them myself out of card stock. The center partition part is what I made.

    Now you can buy them:

    You could probably modify an existing wad also if you were comfortable doing so.

    IIRC my 12 ga BPS has a 26" Modified (before SG's came with removable chokes) Great
    gun for me. Spreader wads helped with on closer small game.

    "patterning board" = best thing to do !!
