What's the RSI number Kenner?
RSI, Vol. 8, No. 1:
pg 8, Recipe 1. 7/8oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1425fps; 9700 LUP
Recipe 107. 1oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1550fps; 10,000 PSI
Recipe 108. 7/8oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1675fps; 10,700 PSI
In Tom Roster's CONSEP steel on phez study, the best load was 1oz #2s @ 1365 fps. He didn't have #3s, 'nor faster shells at that time.
One can do a lot with the AA HS hulls.
I sub Ched primers. I don't shoot #108, as it's too much for the farm phez I shoot. For my situation, 1oz #2s, or 7/8oz #3s, moving a little faster, is nice. I even was shooting birds with 7/8oz #2 and a skeet choke, but the pattern got very skinny @ 30yds. BUT,, 7/8oz #2 with my Wad Wiz Extreme/LM is deadly @ 30 yds. It's a more narrow pattern than the 1oz #3s with the WW SWAT choke. I'm "assuming" the lighter load, through a tighter choke, will throw a more similar pattern at diff. distances, than an open choke and a big payload, where there's heavy pattern density in closer, spreading to become thin.
Lemme know what you learn!
p.s..... RSI has loads for HW13 shot in AA hulls! Pull a AA outta your pocket and rock a goose at 60yds and watch your friends' faces. HA!
