The two hammer 10 gauges I have owned both with 32" barrels .
One was 9lbs and the other was a 10lb CG Bonehill , I regret selling that one .
The chambers in that Bonehill was lengthed to 3.5" at some point in its life .
Probably why it was only 600$ and ones identical to it go for 2500-3000$.
Never the less I shot a bit of RST 1 1/8 oz load out of it .
I tried to explain to other people when they shot it a 1 1/8 oz load from a 10lb gun is probably the softest shooting shotgun as you can get .
People hear "10 gauge" and instantly think it has monster recoil .
I try to educated them on these 2 7/8" chambered guns .
I wish we had more people in this part of Georgia who enjoyed crow hunting .
Sadly if its not a game animal no one seems to hunt it , be it crow or coyote etc.

If I pick up a another 10 gauge at the end of the year ( Got my eye on a hammerless parker) I am wondering if it would be better to go with the 1 3/8 oz RST loads ?

I wish I could say I've shot any of the 5 ten bores I own at least once in the past five years but I can't. I keep thinking I'm going to get out and shoot more but I don't. Been retired 20 years and other people are still running my life. I am going to the range today but I won't be shooting, I'll be helping a hired contractor change the clutch in our Cat motor grader. As soon as it is done I need to start dressing up the 3 miles of roads in the complex. Well I've vented enough time to get on the road to meet the guy. Have a great day.

Dennis, Your time plight sounds familiar. Sometimes I think I should go back to work so that I can have more time.
