Anybody have any load data for a 56 cal. smooth bore for shot? I know it's close to 28ga., found wads at Circle Fly, but no load info. Thanks.


Edit: Circle Fly did have the info on that, I just didn't look far enough.

    I have had good luck on squirrels and cottontails using 70 gr ffg, a thick felt wad,then using the 70 gr measure, measuring out that amount of 6's or 7 1/2's and a card wad.
    I also use 70 gr ffg and a .535 round ball which give me about a 3-4" group at 50 yards. I think that group would tighten up a bit with a .545 round ball, but I have not tried it yet.
