    1st batch of 00 buckshot

    ok so I've cast up my 00 buck, loaded my first 25 rounds of 25.8 gr AP70N over WAA12F114 wads (well actually #CB1114-12, 12gauge (YELLOW) )with 9 balls, I've just realised there is a pressure gauge type indicator on the press, I've photographed the start setting and then what it gets to when I've seated the wad......is this a safe setting!!!!

    Not too sure on the setting but I think you need to compress the powder/wax/shot column otherwise your velocity will be erratic

    I still load with a whackamole type lee loader and they go bang and things die....
    if all the crimps look similar you should be good to go.
    only one way to find out how good,dont think you will be able to make a shotgun "dangerous" if your components are correct quantity wise.buckshot is generally a 30 yard load anyway so velocity difference wont matter too much.
    looking at your avitar......try some #2 shot if after the Aussie overstayers.
    buckshot is ok but the #2s will give you better results,the buckshot will loose pattern way sooner than std shot. if you want harder hitting get some #BBs and yes you can use the steel ones sold for BB guns BUT WILL NEED steel wads (gunworks sell them)
