I loaded up a 1 oz. load using AA hull, Fio 616 primer, REM TGT12S wad, #8's, and 23 grains of PB. Shot two boxes today at the 27 in a 10-15 mph wind from the Southwst. Almost no recoil and smacked the targets with a LF choke in my Ljutic. This is the first time I tried PB in 1 oz hot load (1260fps avg., Chronograph)). I was impressed.

If you've got recoil issues, like I have (flinching) you might try this load. I was amazed at the lack of recoil.

Tripod,

Where are you located? I still have PB 5 pounders by the case/4 for $250.00 That equates to $12.50 per pound. Pick up only. I'm in NH

It would have been gone long ago if I were a hazmat shipper. Hell, can't even ship it from the regional UPS terminal.

Price does not mean much if you've got a recoil problem, and this load is the fastest softest load I have ever shot. And I've tried just about everything.

To make PB's cost more palatable, divide the difference in price between it and any other powder by the approximate number of shells a pound of it will load and multiply that by 25 to arrive at exactly how much more using PB costs per box. I think you'll find it to be quite acceptable, especially if you like light-recoiling shells.

I guess you get what you pay for. It seems PB has been around forever (when did it first come on the market?) and is still the best powder. I never used it due to price. Now I know why they charge more. It's the best for recoil and speed, bar none.............
