I keep getting booted and the posts I made disappear.....Somehow my responses are getting lost here..............
I'd be buying that 870 for $200 & reselling it for some loot to put towards something I wanted.
The dimes are easy to load in a 12ga, just use the same load data (wad/powder/case/ECT) for the 1 1/8oz target load (1200fps) & put 20 dimes instead of the 1 1/8oz of lead shot. This load is just plain mean!!!! The dimes that turn sideways cut just like a knife in whatever they hit (light grade body armour). Just make sure you have either a sawed off bbl, an open cylinder bbl or a cylinder choke in your bbl before you shoot them.
My favorite home defense loads are these & olf unfired (duds) 22lr lead bullets loaded up for poor mans buckshot (10 22lr slugs in every round loaded). I alternate rounds in the 870 so if I have to use it someones catching 10 22's then 20 dimes the 10 22's then, well you get the idea. If you have acess to a shotgun press load some of these loads up & give them a try. Like I said, flat out mean!!!
I finally broke down and bought a new shotgun. I even added the poor mans tactical light on it. I used my existing Brinkmann flashlight and a one inch scope ring on the attached tri-rail I added. Seems to work well but we'll see at the first firing this coming week during Christmas at home.
