I've been using Cannon's Fed GM 1 1/8 load that has worked great for me. Trying to branch out and find a heavier 3" load that works for me. Steel powder and probably around 1 1/4oz load. Found one that Jehler posted from Ohsay that I'm going to try out. My gun seems to like the 2 3/4" MM load that is why I am working up from there with the same wad. Still have to try the lbc 1 1/4oz load and will compare them both.

Ched 3" hull
Ched primer
BP 3" MM wad
32 grains steel
1 1/4 shot
1400fps
10900psi

I loaded this one with #B shot and it did great last year. I'm loading it with #2 shot right now for big ducks. I actually upped it to 34 grains and got to 1500psi but it was OVER PRESSURE for a 3" gun. Fine in 3.5" but too much for a 3". Saw no increased performance over the 1400 so I'm going back to 32gr for these 2's.

BBK,
Did you have to trim the 3" MM?

No but I used a dowel to seat the wad all the way.

Did you send it in for testing with 34 grains? I shoot a 3.5" but still don't like to push it.

I also have this same load given to me with 33gr steel with a win209 with a pressure of 11,100 and 1430fps. Not sure how the pressure is verified.

No, but I am certain it is under 14,000 psi. 33 should be around 11500 so 34 should be in the 12500-13000 range max.

I even loaded some with 35 grains, but I would not advising going that high unless it was tested. 34 will be safe for 3.5" guns.
