Your not going to get them up to that velocity and keep them within pressure limitations. With Slug loads you can usually push the velocity a little higher because slugs naturally produce lower pressures for the same weight due to the physics of the whole thing but that's about how it works without overloading to dangerously high pressures, having an extra long barrel, or making longer "wildcat" shells to hold more of a slower burning powder and more pressure spike reducing wadding that's all she wrote.
Hard to play for keeps against the laws of physics and win. Hey, thanks for the reply. I'm currently loading It cycles the saiga just fine, but I want to get closer to the velocity of the 12 Ga. Yea, I know the mouse gun ain't a trap gun, but it's deadly on doves and pigeons as well as a ton of fun on 5 stand. I see no signs of over pressure or slammin' of the action on the Saiga, so I'm wanting to step up the charge weight, in small steps, until I do. Daily 20 Ga. I'll try to chronograph that load in the Saiga this weekend to see how much, if any, speed the gas action gives up.
While I'm not ignorant of the laws of physicsor the dangers involved when bending said laws, I appreciate the time you took to lay it all out in your post I just can't seem to resist tweeking my loads for a specific purpose, in a specific gun.
The Saiga strikes me as a pretty tough action, so I feel confident pushing it a little bit. Every shotgun I've ever had, had a "Sweet spot" velocity wise, as regards pattern density. I don't expect the saiga to be any different, usually faster is better, but not always.

Heinlein "Idque apud imperitos humanitas vocabatur, cum pars servitutis esset. Jim the works well. IMR is an excellent choice for heavy payload loads in 3" bore. Unlike the ball powders it has good stable ignition; still a little dirty but it gets the job done very well.
Since this is in an Encore with a 12 inch barrel I want a full payload of shot to maximize the pattern. Originally Posted by jh45gun.Moderator: SShooterZ. Cheddite of Fiocchi 3". Posted: Fri Sep 25, pm. I would like to start reloading for.

Crown Grade.Hello, I am looking for some suggestions related to reloading 3" shotshells in. I have read a number of posts on the internet related to this topic, but none of them provide all of the information I am looking for, and some are rather old, and I'd like to have more current information.

It's been a very long time since I shot. After watching some internet videos that showed. All of the advice I have gotten from people for both 28 gauge and. As part of a process of evaluating the cost of buying.
I also could not find a shell on the Remington web site for 3". But I see reloading recipes on the Alliant and Hodgdon reloading data web sites for 3".
All of my shotshell recipes have come from the Alliant and Hodgdon reloading data web sites. Alliant and Hodgdon H look like the best bets to me. I know there are books that contain shotshell reloading information, but I don't know whether or not they are more complete or better than the manufacturer web sites. I have purchased a MEC Sizemaster reloader in.
The only reloaders I could find that support 3". First question: In your experience, is the extra shot in a 3".

Is it worth the extra expense and effort? Second question: What source do you use for reloading data? Third question: What brand and model of 3". What is your favorite reload recipe for that hull? Fourth question: Do you know of a web site where I could buy 3". I can't find ANY. Fifth question: Have you ever reloaded Winchester Super-X 3". Sixth question: Have you ever reloaded NSI. Seventh question: Do you have any tips and tricks that you would care to share about using the MEC Sizemaster for reloading.Discussion in ' Reloading ' started by mayfieldJun 26, Log in or Sign up.

The Win HS will handle more reloads than others, but the Remmie hull loads better and has a bigger boiler room. I would only load that hull with copper plated 5's for suitable game.
The tends to be disappointing in the game field. Know its limitations. Shooting CoachJun 26, Joined: Jan 29, Messages: 1, Remington hulls load the best for me.
