    Every powder manufacture has an online reloading data sheet. Google is your friend.

    <blockquote><I>"I am looking for a shotshell calculater."</I></blockquote>As has been suggested, use the online databases in both the Hodgdon and Alliant web sites.

    Peak pressure and velocity are NOT ballistics that can be calculated; they must be measured directly by testing. The powder manufacturers have already done the work for you and published it in their data bases.
