  1. I have had a Lee Load All for about 20 years and bought it to load black powder. I have just started reloading smokeless and here are my observations: The press leaks quite a bit of powder. I have tightened everything as much as I dare but still have quite a bit of leakage. I have done some research and this doesn’t appear to be unique to my loader. All of my powder bushings are not accurate. My 13 grain bushing is accurate to within .2 grains but my 13.7 grain bushing throws 14.2 -14.4 grains which is too much of a variance. I am using Titewad powder and I know the powder choice can make a difference. This is something I will have to figure out. It will produce shotgun shells and will take some work on my part to do what I want to do. For the price and no more shotgun shells than I shoot I will figure it out. Just my thoughts so far.
  2. Thanks for that information. I have been loading cartridges for many years but this is my first foray into smokeless shotgun. My Load All does not have a 13.5 grain bushing for Titewad but does have a 13.7 and 14.3 bushing so looks like I’m OK with either load. I was thinking about #8 shot because that is what the AA low recoil low noise load uses. I know it’s smaller but get more pellets per load. It may not make that much difference for our game. I’m looking forward to loading and testing some. Thanks again for all the help and suggestions!
  3. Thanks for the replies. I picked up the titewad and some wads yesterday. I have some 7.5 shot so I will make some of those and try them. I need to get some more shot so I may get #8 so I can try that load also. Thanks again!
  4. Short rifle. I was looking for carbines but ended it with short rifles with octagon barrels.
  5. I am sure this has been covered but I cannot get the search feature to work. Have tried for several days. I have a chance to pick up some Titewad and looking for a “low recoil low noise” type load. I have my once fired AA Hulls and Winchester 209 primers. I will be loading on a Lee Load All II. I am thinking a 7/8 oz. load but open to suggestions. I haven’t purchased any wads yet so would like to know what wad you use with your load. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
