I have 4 cans 1 pound cans of SR 4756, CAN NOT find any reloading data. I know it is old, I want to shoot 1 1/8 of shot at crows, as fast as I can. HELP

Levi391, 4756 is a powder that is designed for heavy payloads, for 1 1/4 oz. or heavier. It is a progressive burning powder that develops low chamber pressures. 1 1/8 oz. doesn't provide enough 'back pressure" or "setback" to enable the powder to develop enough chamber pressure to perform efficiently. 4756 just isn't designed for standard 1 1/8 oz. trap loads. I would suggest you locate a dedicated game shooter and negotiate a trade for a powder that better suits your purpose. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble

levi391, as you've been told 4756 is not really intended for 1.125 loads. I have one that is a lab tested load for 1.125 running out at 1550 fps but really don't want to give it out. Where do you live? If somewhere in the vacinity of me I would be happy to trade you a better powder for your needs.

As pheasntmaster alludes to, 4756 CAN be used to devestating effect in 1 1/8 oz loads. His 1550 is right there with mine and it will kill any crow out to WAY out there.

levi, try this. It's great for way-back loads in trap or game. Rem. STS, Gun Club or Sport Load hull, WW209, 28.5 SR4756, AA114 wad, 1 1/8 of 6's. DEVASTATING! And consistent, too.
