New 930 factory .670 and Long Beard XR #5!
« on: March 03, 2021, 03:51:37 PM »
I did a quick polish of the barrel. Lines going straight down the barrel. Makes me wonder if they are supposed to be in there? My polishing removed some off it but you can still see it.

I don't think this is bad for a factory choke and XR #5 at 40 yards.

I am puzzled that the wod went all the way though the target, see left side?

I have ordered an IC .660 and will be shooting Nitro 4x5x7 heavyshot.

What do you think?

I just tested my Indian creek .660 with 2 3/4” number 5’s in Super X and Longbeards
great 30 yard patterns. The Longbeards edged out the super x load.

Good pattern. If you want to take it to the next level try Apex #9's and push the pellet count up and increase your range. You may want to try a different choke also.

Thanks I'm sure those TSS would be wicked. I still have some Nitro Heavyshot 4x5x7 I'm give those a try first.

The IC .660 tightened up the LB XR and kept the same POI. I then tried the heavyshot 4x5x7 and the pattern moved low and left. If never seen a pattern change that much between shells.

TSS maybe in this guns future. It's fun just playing around with it.

I'd say the 930 did just fine.
