Benelli Montefeltro (Fed. #9, Apex #9, Fed 8x10 loads)
« on: February 02, 2019, 06:08:54 PM »
Been watching the weather and finished up my shot trap this week so I loaded up today to testing my trap (worked GREAT) and test a few loads and chokes....

Apex #9/ .570 Rob Roberts  (best performance of all choke/load combos)





Apex #9/ .562 Sumtoy




Federal #9/ .562 Sumtoy




Federal #9/ .570 Rob Roberts




Federal #8x10/ .562 Sumtoy




Federal #8x10/ .570 Rob Roberts (this was my 2nd best pattern)

And I weighed my shot I caught from my trap. Caught roughly 5 oz of 6.25 oz of #9’s I shot

some fine looking patterns there
I really like the 570 RR and the Federal 8x10's
it's not the harvest,it's the chase

All very nice patterns but those Apex 9’s RR .570 look mean.
