Tests were conducted using two dry felt wads under the cartridge and 3.5 drams of Pyrodex Select; one ounce 4 shot with modified choke at 20 yards.  Both shots were fired from the right barrel.  The left barrel shots did not produce adequate quality pictures for the software.   The results for the loose charge on November 7 were as follows:
