Wilson Combat 870 and Federal #1 buckshot. 7, 10, 15, and 25 yards respectively. I’m shit with a shotgun right now. Pulled the 7 yard and 15 yard shots right a bit. Also have an awesome video of me short-stroking it. Practice time.

Both the Wilson Combat project guns in one photo, oh my. The 870 is wearing the prototype ARID Products Q-DC side saddle. The portion that actually holds the shells is detachable, and can be replaced on the fly. The best part is that the side saddle “magazines” will fit into a lot of Standard AR pouches. I’m looking forward to playing with it.

3 rounds of Federal Flite Control #1 Buckshot at 15 yards out of the Wilson Combat #BoomStick. Accounting for aiming variations, it’s patterning about 6″ at that range. Keep in mind that’s a payload of 15 .30 caliber pellets. I am pleased.

5 rounds at 25 yards, standing unsupported, of Federal LE 132 1B. Which is a 15 pellet #1 buck reduced recoil 12 gauge load utilizing the Flite Control wad. Fired from the @wilsoncombat #BoomStick With the @vangcomp #VoodooWork . Of the 75 total projectiles launched, 64 of them impacted inside of the 8″ target circle, for a total “hit” rate of 85.33%, compared to the 00 buck’s 87.5% hit rate, accounting for human error makes the difference between the two negligible. Once again remember that this was shot standing unsupported. Were we to remove the shooter as a factor I suspect, just like with the 00 buck, we’d see closer to a 95%+ “hit” rate, though this does show what I consider to be a fair representation of practical accuracy.
What IS of particular interest to me however, is that while the accuracy of both loads is comparable, with the #1 buckshot you are putting nearly double the number of holes in your target. Further experimentation is required, particularly at closer/further distances, before I pick a favorite, but so far I am leaning towards the #1 buckshot for my purposes…
