With Precision Reloading suspending all testing, does anyone have an informed opinion on a 16 ga recipe the I cobbled together from multiple sources; 16ga, 1oz, 14.5gr of 700x, Chedite 209 pr, Claybuster wad in a Federal hull. Anticipated fps 1100 to 1150 with 8,000 psi. Thoughts?
The 16gauge spreadsheet of data from Yahoo, is over on 24HrCampfire now.
It tabulates most published 16 gauge loads, with source references.
I see a load in Federal hull, 16 grains 700X, AA16 wad, and Win209.
I guess much depends on your comfort with substituted Cheddite 209, but you appear to have a good margin of safety.
The "never substitute anything" police will be hounding me shortly.
I was going by their 2021 reloading manual and there is no 700x loads listed. Yes they show some specific loads on their website for certain hulls but with none listed in their most recent manual. They make the powder and do not list it in their manual for 16 ga. ? You asked for advice and I was trying to give you good safe information.
