bpi load of the week

Postby d_money » Sun Mar 09, 2014 9:20 pm

Anyone shoot this week's load of the week from bpi?
Rio hull
Rio primer
40gr steel
Lbc 43 wad 3 slots
1 1/8 oz
1575fps.

Looks like it would be a great load if it patterned well.

No 2 3/4" Idk if it will fit. I don't have any Lbc wads but seams to tight of fit. If anyone knows if it does I'll buy some for patterning.

That has to be a 3" load. No way it would fit in 2 3/4"

I agree, this must be a 3" load. I load the LBC 43 in 2 3/4" Cheddites using BPI's data that calls for 34gr Steel. It is a good load. Much like Chris's "HG" load. I have loaded it in the RIO blue 2 3/4" hulls with 34gr and it fits and crimps nice. 40gr would be too much to fit and way too hot, especially with the Rio primer. I drop a couple of grains when I use them. Their data also lists the LBC 43 used in 3" Cheddite hulls with 43gr of Steel with 1 1/8oz. Personally if I am going to load 3", it is to get a bigger payload not a few extra FPS. I load the LBC 50 with 34gr Steel in 3" Cheddite (Kent) hulls with good results

Compare that load to RSI 64 @ 1485 fps, 6 additional grains propellent for 90 fps is nuts. Then you have to slit each LBC wad.

If you want an excellent load for the 12ga 2 3/4" RIO hull. Rio 209, 32gr steel, LBC43, 1 1/8oz #3 steel, 1470fps + - In Green Rio hulls.

Baltz You got that Rio load dialed in as well as I do , seems to be a good pitch load for river hunting with 2's and 1's
:hammer: But I prefer the Blue hulls

I normally load the same thing with a csd118. I didn't figure that bpi load would fit. They have it as there load of the week this week.

I get the best patterns with the wad slit three times all the way to the last rib. The LBC wads are thicker than the B&P (CSD) wads. Not sure if it makes that much difference but I feel like they give more protection from bigger pellets.

Jehler passed a couple recipes to me and suggested I try slitting them with 3 petals. They produced some good patterns.

Those BPI loads look like some of their 3" loads for sure.

Those are some good loads. My gun liked them with #2 the best.

Those would have to be 3" loads, but as usual you never know what to expect from BP.
40 grains of STEEL would be a lot for a 3" 1 1/8 oz load.
If any of you guys can manage to fit those in a 2 3/4" hull and try them out please take before and after pictures of your gun, that way we can all see what a catastrophic failure looks like.... :rolleyes:

I tried 34 gr of Steel in the Blue Rio hull and it was way to much for me with the Rio 209 , like Baltz says 32 grs is just
Right !

Rio hull
Rio primer
40gr steel
Lbc 43 wad 3 slots
1 1/8 oz
1575fps.
If you Look up all the 12ga 2 3/4" data in the BP Advantages book. 39gr of Steel is the largest powder charge with 1oz loads. There is a 3" Cheddite 1 1/8oz BB, LBC43 load, with 43gr of steel. 10,000psi, 1605fps. Now if the quoted data was in a 2 3/4" roll crimp load it might work. Doubtful
