Re: Grouse Guns?
I have shot a lot of grouse ruff here in Wis the most was 97 in one season. I have been hunting grouse for 47 years
My frist gun was a model 12 20ga with so tight of full choke I killed most every thing on the 2nd shot use a 870 back then too.
My frist true grouse gun was a savage fox upland special 20ga 24 in barrels lighted to reduce weight to 6 lbs. Right barrel opened up tp throw a wide ovel pattren at 20 yards.
I killed hundreds of grouse with that gun some pheasents shot around 10000 rounds threw it before it developed heads space trouble.
My next one is a BSS 20 ga 26 inch IC/mod killed lot with this also. Still useing it.
I have several others 12 16 and 20 ga guns but the main 2 are above. My favorite grouse load is 1oz of 7.5s at 1200fps.
