    An update:

    700X  is the only powder still in production that is listed in the referenced 8 pellet 00B loads above.  These deliver approximately 1200 fps for the one ounce buckshot payload. The buffer used is BPI Original.

    Given the dearth of commercial cast or swaged 00B pellets, consider using .310" lead balls. Nine .310" fit in the same space and are available from most muzzle loading supply sources. Inexpensive molds  for .310" and.311" diameters remain readily available as well.

    Good point.  I have thought of doing that exact thing but round balls are hard to come by in any size these days.  Maybe things will get a bit better after the holidays .  .  .   :shrug

    my lgs has 700x, but they want $500 for an 8lbs jug.
    I have a buckshot casting set up with a lee 4-20 pot and 18 pellet mold. I need to print up a pellet separator and nab a tumbler to round them up and work harden them.

    Yes. When the question is 1911, the answer is "yes". ~HVS
