Will sub-sonic 24grain round work well in Saiga12?

Recommended Posts

Look at this chart: http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/_DMC/DEP12.jpg


If the load weight and velocity is equal or greater to 3 dram it should work in a healthy saiga. Shot size is irrelevant. Shot type is irrelevant.


24 grains of what powder? ????


if you mean grams, (of shot) 24 grams = .846 oz. sonic limit is around 1129 FPS. So that would be between 2 1/2 and 2 3/4 dram eq. = NOT run.


A better question is why you want to run wimpy ammo? 3 dram is pretty soft already.


Subsonic is nice for suppressors, but for shotguns, you generally want to get the highest possible controllable velocity for extended range.


So you are getting confused or flabberghasted responses are because you aren't giving descriptions that make sense and your goal makes no sense without more info.
