Default 2 3/4 loads for Damascus barreled gun

First let me say thanks to member Steve Hodges for a great gun. Steve sent me his load data using Winchester AA Lite which no longer is available. I may have a small amount but not enough to load any volume. I do have the silver AA Winchester (or clone) wads and a small amount of Winchester 209 primers.

I would like to load some ammo using AA (old and new) 24 gr. and 1 oz at 1200 fps or a bit more if at all possible.

Can anyone give me a current powder suggestion that will keep pressure down in the safe range ?

Thanks in advance.

Bruce,
I use 18 grains of Clay Dot with 7/8 oz. According to Alliant's web site this load is right at 1200FPS and between 8,000 and 9,000 lbs. I use this load in all three of my Parkers. All are 12 GA. one is Laminated Steel and one is Damascus. Been using this load for at least 5 years.

I have been shooting a 7/8 oz load in my 12 ga twist barreled Parker. I like the load.

Win AA case
Win 209 primer
Claybuster grey wad (I forget the number)
14.7 gr of Alliant Extra Lite powder
pressure is published at 7000 psi
velocity just under 1200 fps

I have about 3 lbs of Win AA Lite left, I use it in my 12 ga 7/8 oz loads, mostly for my WW Greener hammer gun in Rem Gun Club hulls. Dont know what I'll use when I run out of that. Well, I do still have 1 lb of PB and 4 lbs 7625.

Charlie: do you have a link to that site. I did a search here and I could not find it.

Thanks

There are some lite/ low pressure loads in the most recent issue of the DGJ.

I have a 1 oz. load, tested by Tom Armbrust, that uses Solo !000. PM me if you're interested. It's in the 6000 psi range.

Thanks all for posting. Given our current situation with ammo, especially low pressure stuff, I am thinking seriously about getting my 9000 out and loading up some 2 3/4" stuff. Heck, I may even look for a 2 1/2" single stage outfit.
