Back at the turn of the century Federal made a similar load that was very light (one ounce in a 12 gauge) but it hit hard. They didn't make it for long. I had varying experiences with Bismuth loads but I think the Kent version out now is as good as any. Fiocchi, which I normally like, offered two density of Tungsten-ploy loads neither seemed to hit hard. I finally gave up and had choke tubes installed in a 1979 BSS and shoot steel through it now.

Karl, Thanks for the compliment. If you want to try it, this is the recipe. When I read it, I thought, no way! Cooking with citrus is no my kind of thing, but it turn out to be perfect, especially for turkey legs which are slightly problematic to begin with.

with an ounce and a quarter of #5 bismuth the following works wonderfully on mallards and pheasants.
Hodgdon Longshot Ched. 209 WAA12R 31.4 gr 7,200 PSI 1,350 fps

From https://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/shotgun

Could use a tich less powder and a roll crimp for even less pressure.

Brent,
Thanks for the recipe. My idea of "problematic meat" would also include Pheasant legs.

Karl, I know what you mean about pheasant legs, but I find that most of my favorite recipes will handle them well enough. However, with this recipe, I'm reconsidering my butchering practices for them this fall. I kill quite a few pheasants and this year is shaping up very well for birds so far.
