He has them on his 3" hull post.
Never got it...
RSI 75 has always been the go to load for those hulls, gives listed velocity with the Win Blue Box primers
With the Federal 209A/CCI 209M reduce down by 2 grains of STEEL powder to 35 grains and you will get around 1559 fps from RSI 75.
BTW 33 grains of STEEL powder will not give you 1475 fps from a 1 1/4 oz 3" hull load no matter what recipe you use.
There's only one recipe RSI lists that will give you those kind of velocities with 1 1/4oz and it still has to be modified a bit.
BBK, Oakie, Baltz & BTJustice,
I currently have 3 boxes of these 3" Nitro Steels unfired and plan to use the hulls to reload once season opens. Actually, I was kind of dumbfounded when I saw that the fps is only 1265 for them. I am trying to find loads/data for these hulls that would be considered higher velocity, so when you say 1559fps, that is what I am wanting. Really 1559 fps and above. Having said this, would you please post the RSI 75 load also, please sir?
Fyi, I am shooting a Remington 1100, 30" bbl with modified and/or improved cylinder rem choke. I will pattern it next week for the very first time with these factory Nitro Steels, the RSI 75 and 80 loads and post photos for you all. You hit the nail on the head...
