  1. Many factors contribute to premature case splitting and I will just add one more. "Powder burn rate" and Clays and 700x top the list of fast powders.
  2. Lyman 42nd edition, Reloader's Handbook September 1960 has what you are looking for. What particular powder are you using it lists Hercules Unique, Alcan Super M, Alcan 101, Hercules Red Dot, Du Pont M-B, Du Pont PB, Alcan AL-5, and Alcan AL-7 and shot charge and I will list the info.

  4. Sadly there comes a time when the equipment needs to be put out to pasture. We use Practiscore with online sign up and have forgone the old paper score sheets as well. Adding the few technologically impaired shooters to the tablets before the match is not a big deal. We usually have the scores up on Practiscore within a couple of hours after the match.
  5. There is one at Pensacola Beach down by Fort Pickens if you are ever down there. 6-inch disappearing gun at Battery Cooper, Fort Pickens National Park
  6. No, unless you need it to get the correct column height for your load. Also you can get a good pattern with fiber wads you just have to adjust you powder to shot ratio. If you are getting blown out center of the pattern then either increase your shot or decrease your powder, I have had good luck with a little less powder by volume to shot ratio (square load(by volume)is the starting point for black powder shotshells) Like any hand load you have to find the one your gun likes best. I shoot a 7/8 oz load and the only time a knock doesn't go down it was the loose nut on the end o
  7. With BP and its subs its loaded by volume. BP with compression subs typically with out compression depends on manufacturer. So measure how much it takes to touch the base of the bullet with the compression or lack of that you need and cut a cartridge to that length and solder a handle on it and dip away. If you want to reduce the load just put less powder and add your filler of choice. Loading BP and Subs is the easiest reloading there is.
