PB for caps Nitro 100 for singles both soft and consistant. Like Bo says takes a snuff can full but turns a clay wrong side out. Bo now that gas is down can we look forward to seeing you in your Ford in Montrose. Breaking a few targets. Roger Smith

Pat, you beter load up on several kegs from that lot. Your next keg might be a challenge to get within .02-.04 gr. variation. Don't forget to check it again in a day or two. There is often a significant difference!!

oleolliedawg - I am setting up to load a new handicap shell with Green Dot. I had to use a little fingernail polish on my bushing and then sand part of it back off. I was wanting 20 gr of Green Dot. I just threw 20 individual loads with my PW. Fifteen weighed 20.0 grams and the other 5 varied less than 0.1 gr. I then drooped 10 charges into one container and they weighed 200.2 gr. How much better will PB meter?

FWIW - PB is "porous base." Wow. Some find that important, but I don't know why.

FWIW2 - A Hodgdon lab guy told me International Clays is very close to PB.

Pat, PB always metered much better than Green Dot. Unfortunately, I will not spend a small fortune for PB when my supply runs out!!

MIA- PB and Green Dot are the two premier powders for handicap loads. I like Green Dot a little better but PB is also a very good powder.

PB is great powder and I like it - but, it does not have anything on REX II if you can figure out how to meter REX II consistently - and REX II is cleaner and less expensive. the beav

PB is a great one ,very clean and soft shooting. D0 you remember the old Extra-Lite Federal ? This powder was the same they used about 15-18 years ago in them. Check out the IMR loading book they have some of the old loads using federal hulls. I used a # 34 bushing in a Mec loader with 12S3 fed wad for years it was a great load. I'm glad you brought it up I think I'll pick some up and see if its as good as it was.

All I have used for the past 25 years for 1 oz & 1 1/8 oz in a Gold Metal hull. I love it,cost be hanged. This is an expensive hobby,what are a few more cents per round. I like Clays in the AA & STS taper hull with 1 oz & 7/8 oz

The big "advantage" is that it's a slower burning powder and can be used for heavy loads with reasonable pressures where the fast burning powders create excessive pressure peaks. Many like it for full bore, hard hitting handicap loads but it does cost and it takes a healthy helping of powder....breakemall....Bob Dodd
