20 gauge brass shells

Post by howl » January 9th, 2018, 4:54 pm

RMC is up for sale! If ya want them, better get them now.

I went ahead and placed an order for a box of 3" 20 gauge cases and a load kit. They answered the phone. So, maybe I'll get them. If they do show up, the first order of business is an ultralight load fit to reproduce .410 recoil and performance with T10s.

Will report back if any progress is made!

First step was to determine if blackpowder might be a path to go for low recoil loads. Eh, a standard 7/8oz load works out to almost 50 grains Triple 7. So, while I assumed bp would be a path to softer shooting, smokeless seems to be more likely route.

Too bad. Pretty sure the boy would dig a big plume of smoke.

I have to get my rear in gear and build a trap so I can reclaim my investment. And get to shooting my Tominator. Hoping to have 70-80 grains of trip7 with tss.

Brass 20ga would be cool. But a youngster may not grasp the coolness of doing that

Well, I don't have an brass hulls, yet. I waited a little too late to order as usual. All I got in so far is a pound of T10s. This may end up being a 2019 project.2

I'm with ya on the trap. I was supposed to pick up kiddie pool and some PVC and rubber runner over the Summer.

Apparently that 2-3 month wait they advertise does not hold. Now I gotta order components! Strongly considering getting a chrono to see how fast 40gr BP will push 7/8oz.

RMC makes a pretty product. The reloading kit is a bargain. Gil

The brass 3" is a bit long to carry any usual way, so I got a choke tube box. Next installment should be pattern of light load. Standard load might happen if I get my hands on the powder for it.
