Mec 9000H reloader with univ. Charge bar.

Ljutic Mid Rib, .740 bore. 705 choke. Release trigger.

Chronograph calibrated using 2 brand new 3dram AA's (1201FPS,1199FPS) and 2 brand new 3dram STS's (1205FPS,1210FPS)

Beretta young gun,

Nice testing data. Assuming FPS & PSI remained the same (or close)? Paints a clear picture for me...the cost for once fired papers, I'll purchase plastic.


Again, nice job.

Nice data. Shows how performance can be diminished as the crimp/hull weakens.

I heard that Federal is working on a non-toxic spray to put on plastic hulls of any brand. This spray makes the fired plastic hull emit a scent just like a fired federal paper.

Honest, this is true. I also heard that Pelosi has stock in the chemical company supplying the product.

No, this is fer reals...(yeah, right!)

Shooting papers has never been about economy.

I disagree with grntitian...loss of velocity was due to inability of the hull to obturate and adequately afford a proper gas seal.

The crimp did its job.

I thought that was an excellent pictorial. Can you put one together for reloading a once fired broken clay? Just a thought! (Obviously from a simple mind)
