Noah Cash Posted July 28, 2014 Share Posted July 28, 2014 Bout time I got with it and tried to burn up some black I got layin around, I have done the cartridge thing before and think I have a slight grasp of the slight compression and let er' rip. I'll use that method in the .45 Colt and the 45-70 Shiloh Sharps, but to shoot in plainsman or frontier ctdg I need to whip up some 12 ga. I am using 2 3/4 " AA Hulls, Grey wads loaded with 7/8 oz of #8 shot with a Win 209 cap to touch it off. What would be a good starting load of black & or Substitute? The current batch of Sub I have is 3f and I have both 2f and 3f Holy Black. I have heard measuring in grains, and some other measured in CC's. Will be using a MEC 600 loader so I can go with a specific bushing, or I do have the adjustable charge bar if that would be a better choice. Not lookin for a load that will tip me over, just one that will tip the knock - downs over and cloud up the shootin bay. I know we can't post load data here but some PM's would be greatly appreciated. You guys and gals have the experience and knowledge I want to learn from.
