20 Ga RSI steel loads

Postby BT Justice » Wed Oct 09, 2013 5:35 am

Looking at the 20 ga RSI loads for the wife to use. Up until now I was just buying factory loads as she didn't go hunting with us all that much, just want to try something different for her.
Do the 20 ga RSI loads give listed velocities or am I going to have to mess with them like so many of their other loads.
Looking at 7/8 oz steel loads for her.

I don't recall it being off enough to worry. I am looking for my log book but it seems to have been missplaced (I just moved a few weeks ago). It should be documented there. I will look tonight when I get home. A friend wanted some 1s and 3s for his 20ga those loads 7/8oz did pretty well for 35 yd shots at the pattern board and in the field. It was a Mossberg pump with Carlsons LM extended choke.

Not as much help as I would like to be, I will see what I can find for you.

Since she doesn't go that often or shoot that much you may find that this would be an ideal application for TSS, however if you don't want her to be too successful then use anything else LOL.

Cant help with any RSI loads but I've got a good one using the VP61 that my son has been shooting using cheddite hulls if you want it. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.
Nobody gives a crap about your season totals.

Joe I loaded up some RSI 118 to pattern. I only ran 2 over the chrony and I had 1416 and 1420 fps @ 3' from the muzzle. Listed velocity is 1430. They averaged 66% at 40 yards and 75% at 35 yards through a jap browning mag 20 with a fixed modified choke. I never hunted with them, just checked them out.

BT I got a lot better patterns and consistency with the bpi CSD-20 wads. Don't know what your after but the 2 3/4 ounce top gun load with 4's was a great performer for my son and VERY easy to load.

FYI I don't know what bpi is calling the CSD 20 anymore. And my experience was with a beretta 3901 urika 2

:lol3: :lol3:
So what your suggesting is I spend the extra money and take extra time to make her shells so she can embarrass me.
Gee thanks...I'm a bit into the male superiority thing so I might just let her stick with steel shot loads... :grooving:

Thanks for the replies, I'll have to check out the CSD wad offerings and see what they have. I just hadn't heard that much about the RSI 20 ga loads and if they worked or not.
I have a bunch of Federal 3" hulls so I'm gonna find something that works with them.

I'm giving you a choice, if you want her to enjoy the experience and be more successful and you want her along then yes by all means, I'm sure she would delight in embarrassing you, all women do LOL. But if you would rather she doesn't like the sport all that much then certainly handy-capping her with more noise and recoil than is necessary along with it being a sub gauge gun so that her success ratio is a bit compromised then by all means use something else.
Sounds noble doesn't it LOL
