6 posts in this topic

I just recently purchased a pattern master and i am wondering if you can shoot lead shot out of them?

Thanks

I am sure it is not a problem. Usually lead shot don't need the help that steel shot needs. I would pattern it to see the benifit of any.

you will have no problem shooting lead out of your pattern master. i use mine for every thing i shoot my pheasant, turkey, duck, geese, trap, and dead coyote threw it. never had a problem.

Yep, both of these post are correct. I have shot a Patternmaster for about 3 years and it handles everything well. I have never seen a choke that has a problem with lead, but there are a lot of them that are lead only or bismouth. Steel is a lot harder and can actually damage certain chokes or barrels on some older guns.

Lead works just fine through Patternmasters. I'm sure you wont be disappointed with your purchase.

You can shoot just about everything trough them except for slugs and federal "Black Cloud"

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
