    I am a new member so this question may have already been covered before but here goes anyway. Does anyone know what type of powder Remington uses in their Nitro handicap factory loads. I have dissected a few new shells and the powder seems to be of one consistancy and a dark gray color. Maybe someone knows what I don't. Thanks!

    It's basically a proprietary version of Hodgdon's Titegroup powder. It is a very dense powder which is why the shells are loaded with the TGT-12S wad.

    You can look up reloading data for Titegroup on Hodgdon's website.

    What short shucker said.

    Just fyi, the Hodgdon data lists the Figure-8 wad. For best results, substitute the Remington TGT-12s wad or the Downrange DRRT-12 wad. If you use the Figure-8 you'll get dished crimps.

    Great powder for handicaps. I use it, although not loaded as hot as the Nitro-27. My load is closer to 1200 fps.

    Thanks for the info. I went to Hogdons site and the reload data center will not give me any specs for the Titegroup powder under shotgun loading. I keep getting steered into the IMR powders. Maybe I am not looking in the correct area. Any help?
    Thanks,
    Don Tate

    Don

    Go to http://www.hodgdon.com

    Select "Click Here to enter the Reloading Data Center"

    It should open up a new page. Scroll down on that page and click "I Agree"

    On the next screen click on "Shotshell Loads"

    You should get a page with six pulldown menus.

    If you're ONLY interested in Titegroup, go to the last pulldown menu where it says (6) Powder, and select Titegroup.

    Then select the type of hull you use under the pulldown menu (4) Shell

    Then select the shot weight (1 ounce or 1-1/8 ounces) under (3) Shot Weight (oz)

    Then select "Get Data."

    Post back if that gets it for you.

    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    That did the trick. I did not even think of working backward on the loader data site. Also thanks to short shucker for the info. Looks like all I need to do is buy some Titegroup and start loading. Thanks to all who responded to my question, extremely helpful!

    Make sure to look at the bushing chart as well. You'll probably end up buying a few new bushings, unless you have an adjustable charge bar.

    Glad I could help.

    Yes, as short shucker says, you'll probably need some small bushings.

    DON'T TRUST THE BUSHING CHART. Its only "close."

    Weigh your charges enough times you are sure that's what its throwing!!

    With the same bushing, the previous batch I had threw charges a half grain lighter than the batch I have now.
