We at Backridge are big fans of the 10 Gauge. At this time we are working three different types of loads for the 10 gauge. We have been working towards a long range non-toxic load utilizing our ITX-13 Turkey Trauma pellets. We hope to have this load widely available for the 2020 Turkey Season.
In addition to our Turkey shells, we are working off of our successful 12 Gauge Waterfowl and Magnum Waterfowl loadings to develop two 10 Gauge waterfowl loads. First, a nice relaxed load that will pattern well and let everyone get their old favorite 10 gauge out of the closet. This will be our ITX 13 loaded at reasonable pressures and speed. Besides being loaded somewhat “down” compared to other available 10 Gauge loadings, don’t forget the ITX 13 is softer than steel. Our second offering in development by popular demand; we are working on a 10 Gauge load for those guys who want the ITX-13, 16% denser than lead, tightest pattern available, high pellet count, biggest pellet possible (just because you can load). We are still soliciting names for this particular load offering, at the moment “Goose Hater's" seems to have the lead…
Finally, in our 10 Gauge offerings we are working on some lead shot loadings. We have not settled on a particular load but these will be rather light as far as the 10 gauge goes but they will let you get the 10 gauge out of the closet and go shoot it. These loads will be considered small game loads with fairly light payloads of shot at moderate velocities.
If you have any questions or comments regarding any of our 10 gauge offerings, would like to make a particular request, or just have a better name for our “Goose Hater” loads please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do read our emails and value our customers feedback.
