Oh Thanks I'm still loading lot #'s 6 , 9 ,17 and 35 .......hehehe
Do you get lower pressures with the Long Shot or the Steel powder?
You do realize Higher pressures could mean cleaner burning , don't you ?
Using a pressure closer to MAX ( 11,500 ) for 2 3/4"/3" gives more consistent loads , if , you're interested ?
I didn't realize that. Thanks for the info.
What do you mean by consistent? Goes off every time, or patterns better?
Thanks again, Daniel
Usually a load that has a PSI of over 10,500 becomes more consistent because all the powder is being burned in the hull , which develops more pressure !
That means the efficiency of that powder is at its max , providing all the velocity it can muster . As long as you are below the Map Pressure (11,500) with
2 3/4" and 3" loads you are safe as the PSI numbers you read are really immaterial to us reloaders !
It's when we try using a recipe of a Slow burning powder without the proper
primer to ignite it , the pressures are lower , which means a lot of that powder
charge is being pushed down the barrel as it's trying to burn , but , that's when
you see unburnt powder in your barrel ( which does you no good ) !
