The following recipes are for 16 GA straight walled hulls or RMC brass hulls.
7/8oz shot, 16.6 grains Green dot, Win primer, Card wad with fiber filler.
7/8oz shot, 16.5 grains Unique, Win primer, Card wad with Fiber filler.
Both loads are rated at 1190fps, 2 1/2drams. Equiv.
I have not shot or patterned the 7/8 0z. green Dot load.
*3/4 or 7/8 oz shot, 18.3 grains Unique, Win primer, card wad, fiber filler.
1230fps, rated at 2 3/4 Dram. Equiv.
Load them all at about 40 lbs. pressure on the wads.
*This load patterned outstanding in my AyA and my friends Parker and is perfect for Blue and Ruff grouse. I also use the load for dove, Huns and Quail
I have shot, patterned and chronographed the loads listed below.
Shot wt. Vel. Powder Gr. Wads PSI
1oz. 1178 SR4756 28 card & fiber 5780
1oz. 1238 SR4756 30 “ 6440
1oz. 1328 SR4756 * 32 “ 7440
1 1/8oz. 1325 SR4756 ** 32 “ 9620
1oz. 2 ¾ dr Trail Boss *** 23 card and fiber
1 1/8oz. 3 dr Trail Boss **** 25 card and fiber
I know that you asked for loads using currently available powder, but that rascal skeettx referenced 4756, so I added 4 of my all time favorite loads. If you can locate a jug of SR4756, I wouldn't hesitate load up the above 1 and 1 1/8 oz, recipes.
The Trail Boss loads came from Tom Armbrust and when I run out of 4756 I'll use TB.
