Pattern Tests of Model 21's and Other Shotguns

The following table is a record of the limited pattern testing I've performed to date.  As I continue to test I'll update the figures.  I plan to test each load at least three time, therefore I have no idea when I'll finish.  Like so many ideas I start this one will take longer to finish than I first estimated.  Oh well, I'll get plenty of range time 8^) .
