Black powder and low pressure smokeless shotshell loads
« on: September 19, 2019, 06:07:31 pm »
Here is a recent, (July 2019), article by Ross Seyfried on Black Powder and Low Pressure Smokeless Powder loads for the 10, 12, and 16 gauge.

The data is for currently produced smokeless powders - except for some comparison loads with long out of production Dupont Bulk Smokeless.

    I would also note: Cheddite paper hulls share the same hard plastic basewad with plastic tubed hulls of the same genus.  Simply put, this means there would be little pressure difference should these loads be assembled in Cheddite plastic hulls.

    The 16 gauge chart shows several such plastic tube vs paper tube comparisons.
