I am SURE I will get comment on this Smile

I have been staying in a lot in the afternoons and evenings.

So have been playing out in the reloading/machine shop.

RST 2 1/2 inch paper hull,
Cheddite primer,
16.0 grains of Green Dot,
Remington SP wad,
7/8th ounce of shot,
6 point crimp.

Perfect crimps and GREAT on crazy and skeet.
Verified with 1927 GECO, Krieghoff Drilling, and Remington 3200.

Will try them in a couple of Winchester Model 12s, early A-5, Rem 1100 and Baikal IZH-27 in the near future.

Let the discussion begin Smile

Mike

P.S. this is a small bit stouter than the 15.0 grain load and DR16 wad in the 2 3/4 hulls

Here's one I've been loading lately:

7/8 oz.
RGL hull (2 3/4")
W209
CB-0078
15 grs. International Clays

It feels soft in my SxS's, but it does cycle my Remington 11.

Very Happy

Skeettx- let me know how this load works in your auto 5? Iím guessing this load would work with the cheddite paper also.

I had it tested with 16.0 gr. and Tom got 1250 fps.

My chronograph was giving 1225 fps.

I then tried 15.5 gr. and got 1185 fps. (my chronograph)

I'll check them out, but I'm most likely in the 1150 fps range all things considered.

I was surprised they cycled my Rem. 11.

Went to skeet range this afternoon.
The paper hulls did wonderfully with the A-5 set
to light.

Just following up with Savage 16's question. Didn't mean to hijack your thread, skeetx. Sorry!

Today I chronographed 4 of the loads above with 15 grains of International Clays, and 4 more with 15 grains of Green Dot. I set up 3' from the screens.

15.0 gr. Int. Clays 1172 fps

15.0 gr Green Dot 1180 fps

Pleased with the results. The velocity is right where I want it to be for my doubles, and yet they still cycle my Remington 11. Also good to know for sure the powders are interchangeable on this load.

Thanks for sharing, I would have never considered the RemSP wad for a 2.5Ē load. They are generally available at any given time, so thatís good if you get in a pinch supply wise.
