  1. I'd reload the AAs and toss the Fiocchi and Herter hulls. AAs have thick plastic walls and do not buckle when reloading. I've had poor luck reloading Fiocchi hulls. I shot some Herter shells today. They too seem flimsy. If you find green Gun Club hulls they reload well too. If you shoot BP in a pump shotgun I'd use 777. The residue is less corrosive than real BP fouling. Personally I don't use BP in a pump shotgun.
  2. We have one shooter who uses these shells. I don't spot for him and stay well back of the shooting line when he shoots.
  3. You could easily exceed SASS rifle velocity maximums too. Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook indicates you could get ~1860 fps using a 158 grain bullet and H110 (an excellent choice for a hunting load).
  4. Agree with skipping the Pyrodex. I load with 777 as well as APP. They both work well. I trust real black powder more than the subs in muggy weather.
  5. My wife shoots SKBs. They are quite light weight. There are used 20 gauge SxSs for sale. Johnny Meadows fit both her SKBs to her. She shoots Winchester low noise, low recoil AAs when she shoots smokeless. She says trap loads give her a concussion.
  6. Sidebar: I was at an action pistol match where one shooter had a Glock. He snatched his cell phone off his belt and tried a reload. I wish I had a video. It was most entertaining.
  7. This is one of my wife's Ruger Single Six .22s she uses for practice and side matches - action job by Longhunters. Her main match revolvers are .32 H&R mag Single Sixes so these feel about the same. Should we run out of small pistol primers these revolvers will be used for local, main matches if allowed. I will switch to firearms using large pistol primers and cap and ball revolvers if needed.
  8. Windex multi-surface cleaner with vinegar is a good cleaning solution for Pyrodex fouling.
  9. Just load the Pyrodex, but keep it dry. Unlike real black powder it absorbs moisture from the air and ignition becomes unreliable. You will shoot up two cans rather quickly. I might shoot it at local matches and save the real black powder for major matches.
  10. RCBS still catalogs the 12 gauge dies. See https://www.rcbs.com/dies-and-shell-holders/shotshell/cowboy-shotshell-die/16-99060.html. They are backordered but you can be notified when the dies are back in stock.
  11. I shoot some modern action shooting sports. There are plenty of shooters in their twenties attracted to these sports. They buy a black plastic handgun, a holster, mag pouch, a few mags and bulk 9mm ammo (or used to before it dried up). They don't reload. I just don't see them coming to CAS in big numbers. We have a few amazing young shooters in CAS but most are not coming our way.
  12. For a televised event add black powder only firearms in addition to exploding targets. I talked to one producer at EOT who stated his crew filmed black powder shooters preferentially because their shooting was more visual.
  13. Thanks for supporting Land Run. Good job finishing 1st place Lady Gunfighter. I will load my shotgun shells for Winter Range with the BP sub I purchased from you.
  14. Is the CZ shotgun still for sale?  If so, I want to purchase it.
