    Looking for and have to trade maybe sell

    Interested 12g reloading stuff and maybe the HS-7 but looking to buy. Only have US 869 powder to trade. Tried to PM you but it says you can’t receive PMs. You can PM me if you want.

    12g wad info

    So, I loaded a handful of 2 3/4 WAA hulls, with 25g of Herco, cb 1138-12 wads, 1 1/4 (really closer to 1 1/8 due to size and number of 000) and tested them. Seemed kind of weak. They shot fine, but more like low recoil rounds. So looking for more recipes now.

    12g wad info

    Delw those links are great. Lots of info. But one post about 5 pages in did say only to buffer if recipe calls for it. Something about acting as a solid mass that increases the psi. I stop by local store today and found Lee .375 lead balls in the clearance bin. Picked that box and some Win AA gray hulls and some Rem Gun Club hulls up. Ordered some 3" cheddite primed hulls, x12x plugs, Mylar wraps, and some Mix 47 buffer from BPI last night too. one day I will have so much stuff I can actually put something together

    12g wad info

    Anything you can send would great. to all... while looking through recipes, none list shot type. I have read that the powder, hull, wad doesn’t care what shot is there as long as the weight is the same . Yet, that leads to buffer. I haven’t seen a recipe that list buffer. I know it’s used to stop deformities in the shot. But, I have read that a lot of people do not use buffer with the hardened buckshot because they will not deform. And, the buffer must be included In the weight. This leads to my question of... does /can buffer change the pressure of a load? Buffer vs no buffer with the same primer, Hull, wad, and powder?

    Picked up 000 5lb from Midway USA. I want to do this right, so don’t mind posting updates, might help someone else at some point.

    Update. Still no manual. I was wanting/ looking for Lyman 5th Shotshell but it’s sold out every where, even at BPI but have read a ton of stuff online from different sources. I now understand how much I under estimated reloading shotshell. I have learned straight vs taper wall hulls, oval vs square basewads, that changing primers can greatly effect PSI etc... my hulls are Win Super X, but looking at picking up some WinAA. CB1138-12 wads, powder is Alliant (Herco) 25g, with Win 209 primers, shot is 1 1/4 of 000. according to the Alliant recipes this should get me 1,225 FPS and 9,500 PSI in the gun Looking to see if I got a halfway close recipe or still missing something

    ISO 5.7 by 28 ammo

    I went through this about a month ago. I found some at Desert Eagle Guns in Prescott Valley, but that was a month ago. I ended up buying off of Gunbroker, it was cheaper.

    22 ammo

    How much for the vest? Just kidding. Good for you on this.
