The Magnum 28 was developed specifically for field hunters looking to load 7/8 and 1 ounce lead shot loads in the 28 gauge. The cushion section has been reduced so the shotcup could be expanded. The deeper shotcup allows more shot to be contained inside, thus extending the useful range of the 28. This finally allows 28 gauge shooters to load a one/two combination where the first shot is a spreader or mid-range load, followed by a long-distance load.
We recommend high-speed loads using nickel-plated shot. For maximum range and dense pattern at range and killing power, the #6-1/2 or #7 nickel plated shot is optimum.
