I have a bunch of shot once 3.5in Kent and Estate hulls that I would like to load and wondered if anyone had a load that moved along at 1550 FPS with 1 3/8 or 1450+ with 1 1/2 oz of shot.

FACTORY Chrono'd 3.5" Kent 1 3/8 oz #3 shot 1581,1523,1602,1622

I've loaded these in the Kent hull:

Fed 209A 36.0 STEEL Sam 3 ½" trimmed .070" 635 grs (1.45 oz) 1432 fps

Fed 209A 38.5 grs STEEL Sam 3 ½" trimmed .125 1 3/8 oz 1478 fps REM

Fed 209A 39.0 STEEL Sam 3 ½" trimmed .125 1 3/8 oz 2 shots 1487,1546 fps REM Mod choke

Not sure where i got this data,
Could even be an extrapolated wildcat
I'm not liable for it's use
Although Alliants site is running 40+ with MM wads,
so i'd heavily assume the pressures ok
they also run 39.0 with 1.5oz in the sam wad,
which seems high to me.
If i were to load the 1 3/8oz again, i'd try using 39.5 to 40.0 and get closer to Kent factory specs.
