Howdy all,

I have a friend who runs retrievers in field trials. He has asked me to come up with a replacement for the $7.00+ per box commercial 'popper' loads. I have e-mailed Hodgdon for their suggestions on the matter, but I was wondering if anyone here had come up with such a load.

Thanks in advance,

Bob McClure

We used to load a blank load with 25 gr. 700X and fill the case up with nitro cards then crimp. They are a bit louder than a popper but there is almost no pressure..won't operate a semi-auto. I'm sure someone has a more modern version.

Be careful, years ago I tried to make a popper load and the wad got firmly stuck in my barrel and it took serious effort to remove it.
