    I need reloading data for Activ Shell w 1 1/2oz shot using 800-x Powder, I was contemplating 27grs 800-X with Activ Hull w/ 1 1/2 oz shot,Rio primer, Red AA
    wad Should be around 1200fps w/10,000psi. The newer IMR loading books do not list the Activ Hull.

    I have data for Longshot Powder, but fellow wants to use 800-X

    E-mail me your recipe

    Gary,

    I have loaded thousands just like that. I still have many activs and that is almost exactly the load I use. I do use 28 grains though. They will chrono out much faster than you have predicted ( almost 1300)

    Cubancigar thanks for the info, This shooter shoots slow and low, I had loaded up a faster shell and he did not like them, but the first box 1 1/2 oz shells
    I gave him were about 1150 fps and he liked them, he gave me back the faster loads, the reason i suggested Activ is the Gun Club shells he gave me were very
    full and harder to crimp, even dented the lower part of the plastic hull a few times.

    Another thing he can easily identify the biggies for Annie Oakley back up shots,
    that is what he wants them for, he has won several Annie's with those shells.

    Thanks

    Gary, why not use the old Federal Gold Metals? Holds a ton of components like the Actives do. Hap

    Hap I don't have any of them, but Identity is High with the Activ's, easily to remember they are 1 1/2 Ouncers
