    Anybody else use all brass shells in their NEF

    Sorry about the typo in the title, I meant "use"
    With all brass shells from RMC, you can really stoke up that 12 gauge.i have mine reamed to 3.5" chamber and with a 535 saboted slug I can get 2300fps. That's what the .505 Gibbs does! I can push 1000 grainers at 1800fps. You can come close in 3.5 plastic with 4759, r17, and r26 with a starter for the real heavies. I have some data I'd be happy to give it's just so painstaking copying it on the cell.

    Does anybody else load up their NEF to elephant levels?

    Hurts my shoulder to think about it. I have a 10g pardner that found me for free but I ain't gettin no ammo for it ever.

    I had both 10g and 3.5” 12g in single barrel. Took on trades, both unpleasant to shoot but I think 12 -3.5” was worse.

    Don't have a NEF, but love the RMC brass in my 12 gauge O/U. Haven't played with slugs. My bear defense round load data came from my Tungsten dealer using TSS18 buckshot (which was originally developed as an anti-grizzly round by some guys in Alaska, and has been pressure tested). 60% denser than lead = much better penetration per ounce of load. And the patterns are extremely tight. I always have a few RMC anti-bear shells in my pocket when out grouse or turkey hunting as I've had close encounters with bears a number of times (and in grouse season, am also packing a bear tag).
