who loads genuine1500fps steel 12ga 11/2oz steel loads??ive chronod the federal black cloud@1420fps listed at 1500fps which were nauseating in sx3.
id like to chrono those alleged 1600fps 10ga rounds,unless theyve some special powder /components exclusive to them then id be just a little suspicious of the listed speed.
You don't have to chrono them , it's already been done and they don't average 1600 fps, more like 1540-1560 fps. They are good loads from a small manufacturer so I won't knock them.
You can and we did get very fast velocities from 1 1/2 oz 10 ga loads, we tried an experiment which we knew was going to go overpressure but achieved velocities of 1660 fps with averages of about 1640 fps with 1 1/2 oz loads. The problem was we were also running between 12,000 and 13,000 psi with pressures, we didn't shoot many of them.
There's no free lunch
Not only is there no free lunch, in this case there is no reason to even attempt it!
There is nothing to gain as you can't make a small pellet a big pellet with velocity and the big pellets are going as fast as they need to go at 1350FPS!
They are going all the way through a Mallard at 70 yards. What would be the point? All that extra velocity is gone by the time you reach 10ga range anyway. Jeff
