    I did a search and didn't see any posts pertaining to grouse loads. The grouse loads I'm referring to are rifle cartridges down loaded with a light weight projectile, specifically for small game hunting.

    Years ago Townsend Whelen loaded up 30-06 with a full patch bullet and a modest powder charge. He referred these to grouse loads and carried some with him on his excursions.

    I load up grouse loads for my 30-30 using resized buckshot and a small charge of powder. I use these in my 94 winchester.. That is a benefit of a 94 winchester, the receiver is open on top and it is a simple matter to slip a round in the chamber. I have not fed grouse loads through a tube magazine..

    These grouse loads are quiet and pack a decent punch. Certainly not as handy as a 22 mag but just another option.

    here is another method, it's called the hammond game getter. It uses a ramset charge and a sized buckshot. This one is for my 30-06. It seems to work pretty good..

    here's a photo of the base

    I have other plans for the Ramset cartridges and now I have another use for them. How about a picture of the completed cartridge? Thanks for posting.
