Re: Rio Blue 3" 12 ga Hulls?

Got the results from the second test load back at 1140fps and 9800psi, no more worrying when Federal hulls get scarce and you feel the need for overkill.
So they are now good for Easterns, Rios, Osceolas and long range Merriams! :struttin:

Re: Snow bound and loading

I've shot/patterned some of them that were already tested the first go around. Most are fine on pressures just trying to get the speed up. A couple are new being tested the first time. I usually test new loads before I shoot them. Not much to go on with 16 ga TSS loads. Not a lot of starting points ...

Snow bound and loading

18" Of Snow here in WV and I got bored. Put together some loads to be retested. Some a little too slow, some too hot, some are new components and a couple with new powders. I hope it melts soon I'm running out of TSS! 5/8oz 16ga TSS #10 Duck Load 3/4oz 16ga TSS/Steel Duplex 1oz 16ga TSS Speed load 2...

Can you raise POI at 40 yds by shooting a faster load? :scratch:

Re: Pattern Decay

With 410 at 40, mathematically you should have around 201 at 60 yards.
410 x .70 =287 at 50
287 x .70= 201 at 60

Re: New Old addition. (POA / POI pic added)

Nice Gun!
I'm going to try some old Copper brass Mohawks in 7.5s for close barrel and TSS 9.5s in top barrel in my 16 this year as well. Good luck and let us know how poi and patterns are.

Re: Rio Blue 3" 12 ga Hulls?

Came back a little slow at 890fps and 7100psi which is fine for #8s or #8.5s. Ill add a few grains of powder and send it away again for testing. Id like to be at least 1000fps for #9s

Re: Rio Blue 3" 12 ga Hulls?

I put together a 2 1/4 oz load of TSS #8.5 today in the blue Rio 3" hulls w/ the 22mm brass. Speed is good so it's off for pressure testing.

Re: Joe Wirth & Apex

#2 seem to be larger than needed and cuts down on pattern density significantly. What do the ballistic programs say?

Rio Blue 3" 12 ga Hulls?

Looks like Federal 3" 12 ga hulls are out of stock again. Who knows for how long this time. Has anyone loaded a 2 1/4 oz load in the Rio 3" Blue Hulls? The Rio hull seems to have close capacity to the Federals. If anyone has any data I'd be interested if not I may try to put a load together to be te...

.410 Revelation single barrel #10s

I'm going to give my father in laws old single barrel .410 a try with Hals 13/16 oz TSS load with #10s.
It shoots a little high so I'll have to hold fine bead a couple inches below the waddles at 40 yards.

Re: Scope mount for 1187 20ga

I run B-square saddles on 870 and 1100 in 20 and 16 ga with no problems. Never heard of one that fits both 12 and 20. They really arent close in size. 12ga fits 16 and 12ga. 20ga fits 20 and 28ga.
