All:

I recently had some rounds tested for the LP reloading group. To keep it short, 22 gr. Universal Clays and 7/8 oz. They came in about 1300 fps. I'd like to knock it back to 1150 to 1200 fps

Any educated guess as to what might produce these lower velocities with UC? I was thinking 18 gr or so.

Thanks

I'd drop it 1 to 1.5 grains Wink

Hi, I use Universal Clays with one ounce of shot in Federal hulls with an SG-16 and Winchester primer. What are the components used in your 7/8 ounce load? Also, what is the pressure? I use older shotguns, so I try to keep the pressure down. Thanks! Mike

DO you have to use UC because I have a load of SR7625 that give me either 6900 psi or 7100 psi using BP components if you are interested PM me.

CP, nobody can answer you correctly until they also know what componants you are loading, including the shell, wad, and primer. Please elaborate a bit more. thanks.

16gg:

In this particular case it was: 2 ¾ Fiochhi, R-16 wad, Fio 616 primer, 22 gr of UC, 7/8 oz of 8’s with your favorite puffed wheat on top. It came in at 1300 fps and around 8700 psi. However, I did mean my question in more or less general terms.

I’ve seen fps/gr mentioned someplace, but that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. So……in general what would you think would knock it down to 1200 fps?. Do you think an SG16 would produce higher or lower pressures than an R-16 in a Fiochhi case?
