Default roomy hull

i got the 2 3/4 Cheditte hull to use some reclaimed TM shot- planning to use Craig's recipe he had tested.

And since i have a lot of bismuth to use up and thought i would load some of that as well

i found this load on the Hodgon site - for a 2 3/4 Cheditte hull



when i loaded it ( powder and shot were weighed to make sure it was right)
i ended up with a tremendous amount of room left in the case

so i went to the 1 3/8 load from the same site



and still had too much room left to crimp over

this is the left over room with a shot load of 1 3/8 oz (not to mention the bit of powder that got past the wad)



how the heck did they test this load -

i tried cheerios - they crushed - so now to find a filler that will hold up

Why not try a different plastic wad? Like the Claybuster 12 for 1 oz. or 7/8 oz. loads. It won't change pressure that much and ought to fill out the hull's capacity. Just a thought.

i'll try a few things -

but the point is - unless all three scales are wrong- as well as the calibration weights - who would list this as a tested load - the 1 1/4 ounce load would easily fit into a 2 1/2 hull and might still need a little filler in that

Rick, Chedite makes a variety of base heights in their 16ga. hulls, and I suspect they also do in 12ga. hulls

Hey Rick,

I have some 0.135" thick card board wads I use in the bottom of my 3/4 ounce CB wads for my 1/2 ounce loads to bring them up higher so they crimp better.

They are 0.625" diameter (20 gauge) and 0.135" thick. I have some 0.070" thick card boards wads too.

I think I'll be seeing you around lunch time on Saturday and can a bunch of them with me.

Bill

First off, a Remington hull is tapered wall hull[ Win also ] where as the Cheddite is a straight walled hull. That's why the powder is leaking by. Many recipes show a wad for a tapered hull used in a straight walled hull, but you see the problem with that clear hull. Even Claybusters shows their Win/Rem wads being used in straight walled hulls and they make a wad for straight walled hulls. Don't ask me why they list them. Any hull except the Rem/Win is straight walled. To the best of my knowledge the 10ga, 16ga, 20ga, 28ga, and 410 are all straight. The only exception is the Win AAHS hulls. They take a special wad. Second, the RP12 wad is meant for 1 1/2oz of lead shot in a tapered wall hull. Go to BPI and ask what wad to use for a bismuth load. It's different than a lead shot wad. Make sure you mention if they don't ask what hull you're using.
