    I have upgraded. JC Higgins bolter 20 still around for the grand kids but hit up on a great trade and ended up with a BPS special field in 12 ga. Takes 3" shells and has screw in chokes. Got a Carlsons ported for large shot like #4 Hevi down to BBB or 4buck, I think it's a "light full" but shoots like X-full with that shot. Looks good in blue and real walnut. Shoots good and nice and light. 21" barrel and short (holds 3) magazine plus 1 in chamber and straight "English" style stock. Great looking gun and good shooter. I like #5 in the 20 and #4 for the 12. Have my eye on a used Franchi 48 in 20 ga at a LGS. Working on getting some cash to put layaway on that beauty. Catfish hooking good on the winter trotlines with the mild weather and big ones are $.65 a lb. and others are $.45 and I'm grossing 80# to 100# to market every other day. So the Franchi soon come home with me! Having bolter and pump shotguns all my life a auto be a treat. Wishing great spring hunting to all. W

    Nice bird, I've not shot a bearded hen yet, have only saw one in woods myself,
    Question on your load, I read somewhere that with ML shotguns its best togo up in shot size, how far do you feel/have the #6s will still be able to kill a bird, I would rather be using #4 shot instead of the #4buck.

    Sorry for the late reply. The gun owner and myself decided to limit our self on 25 yards and under on the shots. #4s and #5s did not pattern near as well as the 6s, and with our decision to limit shot distance, we decided on #6s.

    With a modern inline I would consider 5s with a heavier payload
