Default 2 7/8" 10 ga.

If all goes well, tomorrow I will pick up a "new to me" 10 ga. hammer gun (sorry, not a Parker). "Fox-Admin" suggested that I check this website for valuable information. Are any of you familiar with Sherman Bell's article on 2 7/8" 10 ga. shells for damascus barrels? I'm trying to find it, but I don't know which issue of DGJ it's in. By the way... I really enjoyed the youtube video of trimming and reloading the shells. A picture is worth a thousand words.

I just checked my DHJ Index & Reader Vols 1 & 2 and Sheeman Bell is listed with the various volumes and issues but they aren’t listed with titles or content. Kind of a dead end there.

Sherman Bell “Finding Out For Myself Part 3” Volume 11, Issue 3, p. 19
Sherman Bell “Finding Out For Myself Part 4” Volume 12, Issue 1, p. 23

The information in these is a bit dated because some of the powders used are discontinued but it is still good info.

The 2019 Hodgdon annual manual has an article by Ross Seyfried about BP shot shells that also has LP smokeless loads using currently available powders.

If you are interested in 10 gauge black powder loads, Track of the Wolf has instructions and supplies. They sell a useful booklet and expensive (like $7+ each) 2 7/8" 10 gauge brass shells.

Track of the Wolf sells Rocky Mountain shells with the Parker name on them. I see their business is up for sale, so if you want some better get your order in. I think most guys will agree with me that if you see a moderate 12ga load it will be safe in a 10ga. The chambers are bigger in diameter so there's more area for the pressure to exert on. A lot of the guys like 19grs of RD and a 1 1/8oz load. I like that with 1oz for clay birds or 23grs of GD.

What business is for sale, Rocky Mountain Shells or Track of the Wolf.

Rocky Mountain. Then again it could be just a internet rumor.

Rocky Mountain Cartridge's website says the business is for sale. That's been the case for over 6 months, but they say they are still in business and taking orders. A box of ten 10-gauge 2 7/8" shells is $105. But they say there is a 3 to 4 month waiting period to complete orders.

I don't think the brass shells sold by Track of the Wolf are made by RMC. They have them in stock for $7.49 each, I bought some a few months ago.

I was told at one point that is is actually a PGCA member who makes the brass shells and markets them through Track of the Wolf.

Matt, that could be correct. I would almost think if a PGCA member made them he would speak up here and tell us about them. JMHO
