Bob I shot the SBT surprisingly very well. I left in the release trigger. I Wanted to try it before converting it.
Really thought I would struggle with it but after a couple of shots it was not an issue. I actually liked it. The release trigger seems fast, just cant describe it but works well on shooting pigeons.
Its a heavy gun and with the RSTís it had a very soft recoil. Only down side was once the trigger is pulled you are committed. A few times the bird veered off and i had to stand in the ready position for a minute until another bird presented itself.

Couldn't you open the action to release the trigger?

Phil, I've loaded both #9 & #10 2 1/2 410 and have had wonderful results at the dairy. I think Dale has a bag of #10. I'll talk him out of it and duplicate the load you shot at the Goodyear dairy. Ill give you a couple boxes. The only catch is you'll have to come shoot with us and have a great time! I'll extend the same offer to you also Chris!

Now that I don't shoot release trigger anymore, the SBT's with release triggers are coming out of the woodwork.

I am a firm believer in the RST woodcock loads (spreader #10 shot) for woodcock and early season grouse in the first barrel.
