With shot gun reloading you must follow load data exactly.

So you need to name the hull you are using, brand of primer, brand and type of wad, and powder you have.



Do your self a favor and get a copy of Lyman 5 shotshell reloading guide.

Read all of the first part of that book, it will teach you what you need to know.

What press do you have?

Shooting and Reloading, one hobby feeds the other.

Just got the new BPI Ballistic Products slug manual. Also have their buckshot manual. Good source for data but my main complaint with the BPI manuals is that they use mostly off-brand hulls such as Rio and Cheddite and most of their loads use only their wads etc. so to use their manuals you most often have to purchase components from them. Wish they had used common American hulls by Remington, Winchester, and Federal. They do use Federal Gold Medal type hulls in some loads and the Federal straight walled hull is the best and easiest to load using buckshot. Lyman's shotshell manual has slug and buckshot loads. Unless you shoot a lot of buckshot or slugs I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile. There are also some tools you will need to load most slug loads and BPI's manual has good how-to articles on them.

Indeed, I did not understand that. Thank you for clarifying that for me. I am such a dim wit.
