Titegroup and the 28 gauge

1675 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Rhill
First off let me say I have plenty of suitable powder for my 28 gauge reloading, but I was thinking of some load data I saw a few months ago using Titegroup. These loads listed pressures, velocities, etc. so I would imagine they were well tested. But for the life of me I cannot find this information now. Does anyone know where to look? This is only to satisfy my curiosity, I know Hodgdon does not list it for 28, only 12 gauge.

My Gun Digest Shotshell manual shows no 28 gauge loads using Titegroup.

Good luck and all the best.

Thanks for looking guys, I could not find it either, I will just put it out of my mind, maybe I will find it by accident at a later time. As I said, it was just to satisfy my curiosity, I have plenty of Unique and Universal, enough for probably the next five years.

Sorry, woods, but there was some data on the internet, not saying it is correct or to be trusted, how many times do I have to say it. The data I saw is probably worthless, just like your comment. But just like your worthless comment is on the internet, so is what I saw, thanks for nothing.

Titegroup is listed as #15 on the burn rate chart, you don't get down to 28ga appropriate powder until #30


The ONLY way titegroup would work in 28 gauge without destroying your gun is if someone were loading an EXTREMELY light load, like 1/2oz @ 1000fps, or something along those lines, with like 5 grains of powder, for some real esoteric requirement.

I know a guy using 700x in 28 gauge. [emoji51][emoji15] He says he found the load in some old manual. I don’t believe him.

I gave up on looking for this information, I know it was Titegroup, that is why it stood out to me, I had never seen load data using Titegroup before. I wouldn't use it anyway, if load data does not come from a trusted source I won't use it. I have plenty of Unique and Universal to use. It was just out of curiosity I wanted to see it again, but it's not a big deal. The guy who put it out on the interweb may have blown himself up already......
