ok here my load winchester aa hull federal 209a primer 18.5 grains 700x blue duster wad 1 1\8 shot i cant find this exact load to find fps and breech pressure just wondering if anyone shoots this combo or can answer my question
I wouldn't put it in my guns. The closest recipe with the 1 1/8 oz shot, Win. hull, fed 209a primer, but with the AA wad maxed out with 17.5 gr. of 700X and over 11,000psi pressure per the IMR published data. Nope, not in my gun.....breakemall....:Bob Dodd
I load with 700X and Winchester 209. I think the max load is 18 grains of powder with 1-1/8 oz of shot is max. Federal primers are generally considered "hotter" and would take less powder for same speed, higher pressure. 1250 fps and pressure just below max with my Win primer. To be safe, I load with a 17.8 bushing to keep it around 1225 or so fps and the pressure well below max. It can waffle from 17.6 to 17.9, rarely 18, and I never see it over 18 on the digital scale.
I have not shot this full load in quite sometime, as I found 1 oz. to do the job nicely, a bit faster with the same powder, and pressure much more to my liking. If the bird lands, I simply did not do the job and the other 1/8 of an oz. would not have made a difference I believe.
thanks for the info guys for the record i havent shot this load a frind of mines dad passed away and they gave me the reloading supplies he had it must have been what he used but i could not find the info on this load i know he shot thousands of rounds a year but that does not make the load safe
