    Looking for the makings of a reload that will be from 1400 to 1500 fps. Does
    anyone reload this type shot shell? If so please advise how many grains of what, and how much shot.

    Thanks for your help.

    Remington STS or Nitro 27 Win 209 primer 1 1/8th oz #6s or bigger win12F114 wad
    30.1 grs Longshot 10,400 psi

    Same as above but with Winchester Super Field WAA12 Wad 28.5 Grs Win Super Field powder 10,700 psi

    Win AA Hull, Win 209 primer 1 1/8th oz #6s, WAA12 Wad 32.1 grs Longshot Powder
    1420 Fps @ 9,200 psi

    If you uise 33.2 Grs Longshot you can get 1475 Fps @ 10,100 psi
    I personally like this load. Low pressures, lower than a new Win Super Hdcp Shell.

    If you want a 1 1/4oz load in AA Hull try this
    WIN AA hull, Win 209 primer, Rem SP-12 Wad 31.5 Grs Longshot,1 1/4 oz #6s,
    and only 9,300 psi 1385fps

    Fed Gold Medal hull, Win 209 primer, WAA114 Wad, 1 1/4 oz #6s, 33.4 grs Longshot 1385fps @ 7,200 psi

    Fed Gold Medal Hull, Win 209 primer, Windjammer wad, 1 1/8th oz #6s, 35.0 grs Longshot, 1420fps @ 7,100 psi go to 36.2 Lngsht powder and get 1475fps@8,000 psi.

    If you have 800-X powder try this load.
    Fed GM Hull, Win 209 Primer, 1 1/4 oz #6s, WAA12 Wad,27.5 Grs 800-X, 1325fps @ 9,600 psi.

    All loads are out of Hodgdon Basic reloading manual

    Go to Hodgdon's web site, Look up loads with Winchester Super Field Powder. Might be listed as WSF. Amazing vilocities with low pressures

    Go to the powder manufacturer's site and look at the data. Select the load with reasonable pressures that will give you the velocity with the payload you are looking for. Load it AS listed, since substitutions may affect pressures adversly. Double check ANY loads you find listed in a forum. If you can't find the data, don;t use the load. As por powders, Longshot, ProReach, maybe 800-X or BlueDot. Find the data, assemble the load and prepare to tear your shoulder loose.

    Its a little hotter than 1500fps but take 19.3gr nitroglycerine- W209 Primer-Remington RXP12 wad-Nitro Hull wrapped in duct tape-1 1/8oz #4 nickle plated shot.
    Hold on tight.

    THIS WAS A JOKE. IF YOU HAVE SOME NITROGLYCERINE, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LOAD THIS MAKE BELIEVE LOAD. GEEZ

    Long shot shoots fast, but recoil is unbearable with 1 1/4oz loads.

    calkidd---I figured if anybody was intelligent enough to get ahold of some nitroglycerine that surely they would see this was a joke. After receiving PM's over this post i must agree with you now. How silly of me to think people on here could tell the difference between a small attempt at humor from a real load.
