Looks like powder's trickling back into the state. Now if we could just get primers...

I have seen a lot of primers. Just no STEEL powder to get into shell production. Down to about 3-4oz

Bluedot works in a 20ga. Might even be better than Steel. 12ga 2 3/4" 1 1/8oz bluedot is very consistant, but 150-200fps slower than Steel for same powder charge/pressure, patterns great. Lot of 10ga bluedot data out there, Lyman has it. Deduct 200fps from any steel load and you are in the bluedot velocity range. About the best load I remember reading about with bluedot in the 10ga is 1 3/8oz at about 1450fps, Usable but not a Steel powder load.

Thanks Baltz , That Blue Dot load would certainly do in a pinch with Big Shot at 1450 fps .

It's nice to asked for the wisdom of the wise !
