    Is it just me or does anyone else have problems with getting the data from the hogdon website. I dont have the latest hogdon loading books and I seem to never get it right on the web. Dont have the same problems with the other powder sites. ????????

    Maybe you could try HODGDON instead of Hogdon.

    Fred, I'll try to talk you thru it so to speak. Log on at Hodgdon.com. You need to read the opening page and click on "data.hodgdon.com" 2 click on I agree (a release form) 3 click on shotgun loads. 4 You should now have "reloading data center-shotshell" on top of page. Then enter gauge, load type (lead) shot weight, shell type, and make and type of powder, Hit "get data" below and a screen with all the formula's for the info you entered should appear. I hope this helps you out. Break-em all. Jeff

    The "hogdon" website is a definite downgrade form the old site.

    bulgie ..... When you let your fingers do the walking for you, sometimes they trip, fall down, go boom or just skip a step. Either of the spellings will get you there, myself, I never could spell and I have been both places. Use the Website URL at the top of my comment and it will take you there. For a fast sort be specific on the components or when you are alone on their webpage for a "see all".

    Bulgie,


    I felt the same as you when I first started using the website. But after I started entering data from the end (#6), and working down to #1, it became much easier.


    Good Luck!

    Start with powder, then shot weight, then hull, just takes a few seconds.

    I visit it regularly.

    Works perfectly for me.

    You need to be aware, besides Hodgdon powders, IMR and Winchester powders are included on the site data tables.

    Need to make sure if you're looking for a Hodgdon powder, you don't pick anythign that says IMR on it, and vice versa.

    Works great for me, the Hogdon reloading date web site.

    I have Comcast cable Internet. Perhaps if you are on a dial up modem, is the reason it is slow (?).

    One thing that I discovered is to, enter #6 item, the powder selection. Than work back wards to #1 when selecting the various items.

    Why not just get their reloading data book? Fred

    It may be something I am doing wrong, but I have tried to get some .410 recipes for the Winchester 296 powder off of this site and am having a heck of a time. It just sends me around in a great big circle.

    timb99, STS hulls, 1/2 oz. shot, CB wads and Win 209 primers. Looking for around 1200 fps. I'm guessing about 15 gr., but I don't like to guess. Are you able to pull up Winchester data on the Hodgdon site? Thanks.

    Looks like they don't have data for Winchester 296 powder in an STS hull.

    The only data I find for Winchester 296 is in a Winchester hulls.

    Here's what it shows for AA HS hulls and WAA41HS wads, for what its worth.

    410 Bore

    1/2 oz. of shot

    15.3 grains of Winchester 296

    Win. 209 primer

    WAA41HS wad

    8,900 PSI

    1200 fps

    FYI, there is a lot of data for STS hulls if you look at Hodgdon Lil'Gun

    What is the CB wad a clone of? They have data for Fed. 410SC, Orange PC, Rem. SP410, and WAA41 wads with Lil'Gun.

    All around 12.6 to 13 grains with a Win209 primer.

    timb99, thanks for the interesting info., as well as more interesting question as to what CB wad is a clone of, as it is a superb question. CB wads prior to last batch were white and were clones for "SP410, 410SC, and WAA410". Last batch purchased said clone for "410HS/ SP410/ 410SC" and are red (now include 410HS). I have no idea what the inherent difference is between the white and red. Not sure what has changed, other than red and now for HS Winchester hulls instead of regular. May not mean much to some, but the 28 ga. HS reloading deal was a nightmare due to inconsistent shell height, which is the only reason I am loading STS instead of AA's.

    The other recipes showing 'lil gun loads show much less powder. Any idea of the burn ratio compared to 296? Thanks.

    Mike

    Mike,

    I suggest you give Hodgdon a call. Tell them your dilemma, and maybe they can help.

    Good bunch of folks, and their offices are just a few miles from my home.
