Pete and Craig,
Thank you both for posting those results. I'm almost out of SR 7625 but still
have a good supply of red dot.

I ended up with 8 pounds of 700x and couldn’t find any 10 gauge load data for it. Sold it off last year for $400. Basically got the jug for free. I have 8 pounds of unopened green dot yet and some red dot to try that came with the 700x.

I haven’t ran into a lot of BP load data anywhere. I think track of the wolf and Ballistic products were the only places I’ve had luck for 10 gauge loads. The data I found works up to a square load of 4.5 drams of FG and 1 5/8oz of shot. I tried it with #6 BPI nickel plated shot and in my gun I had a better pattern dropping down from 4.5 drams of FG, 116 grains of FG powder to 100 grains. I can tell you there was also noticeable less recoil with the 16 grain drop as well. Shot a turkey with the load last year at 25 yards with the 100 grain FG load and 1 5/8oz #6’s. It dropped the bird in its tracks.

A few of test targets with the 1 5/8oz #6 load. My barrels must not have tight chokes. The left barrel is the clear winner for longer range shooting.







Left and right barrels with the same load at 25 yards.



The right barrel is definitely a close range spreader.

I also tried factory loaded 1 1/4oz RST #5 and #6. The best group I had was with number 6’s at 25 yards. I had half the number count of hits VS the above load and 40 yards was not obtainable for shooting a turkey needless to say with the RST factory loads in my gun.

And the outcome of the first time out in the woods with the gun and load…

Here are my targets from a few days ago. I tested 100 grains of FG in a Winchester hull. I loaded with a 1/4” nitro wad and 1 5/8oz of #5’s. It didn’t group as tight at 25 yards than my #6 load but IT DID have more hits at 40 yards than my test with #6 nickel plated shot. That was kind of confusing to me. At fifty yards I only had 3 hits VS with the #6’s.

I then tested all brass hulls with the same exact load but added a 3/4” fiber cushion was over the 1/4” nitro wad. The groups were poor compared to the plastic hull loads.


Plastic hulls…


25 yards…




40 yards….




50 yards…





All brass…


25 yards…




40 yards…

Hi, how do you finish closing the top of your load over the shot ?

I use a 4 pin roller for the plastic hulls. The all brass I just glue in an OS card.



The #6’s I cut my hull shorter before I crimped…



The #6 load is probably 2.5” overall length. I cut the #5 shot loaded hulls around 2 3/4” before I crimped. The brass hulls I cut down to approx 2 3/4”.

I am new here, and a side by side fan. Looking for 2 7/8" 10ga data. I can not find the attachments. What am I missing?
