Rem 2.75 load

Postby C M Wings » Sat Feb 08, 2014 1:15 pm

Hi all -

I am well on my way with reloading for my 10 gauge with all the help here as well as the various manuals I bought.

So now to 12 gauge - specifically 2 3/4 Remington hulls of which I have hundreds (gun clubs, nitros, SPS) from my days shooting trap. One nice thing about the 10 is that there really aren't that many loads, relatively speaking, as for the 12... Decisions decisions.....

So can anyone steer me to a good duck load with this hull. I prefer STEEL powder and FED 209A primers, but not stuck on them - just happens to be what I have handy. I do like the pressure/velocity of STEEL.

Thanks all!

Lightning Steel 2 load #32 or #33. 1 oz load in a sts hull with a.steel and a b&p wad (csd from bpi).
One is with a w.209, the other is a f.209a.
It's only sky busting if you miss...

I would not mess with any of the 2-3/4" hulls you listed. Got any Gold Medals?
Banded Birds - Mallard / Black Ducks, 3 Jack Miners and 25 AVISE. BW Teal - 2, Wood Ducks - 1, Morning Doves - 1, Snow/Ross - 2 (both reward bands), Canada Geese - 12 (2 neck collars)

The STS is one of the better hulls. If you won't "mess" with them no one should give you any help. I have a nice 1610 fps load in the STS. Ned S

The "old" Alliant load (1 1/6 oz.) in the 2 3/4" Nitro hull is (IMO) second only to RSI #75.

Does the number of bands claimed simply mean you have an Ebay account?

In the 12 Ga. I use the Rem for 1 1/8oz loads and the winAA for 1oz loads.

The Rem "Uni" is a great hull for loading steel and also lead trap loads.
They work well with a Sam1 wad if you can get them.............

The oversize straight wall wads from the other makers are my second choice.

A 1 1/8oz at 1450 with a f209a is doable............

Good loading.
