    BPI Buckshot Manual?

    Anyone got one of these? Wondering if it's worth buying. Realise that they're looking to sell their components, but I'm ok with that. Looking at AA hulls and fibre wads with wrap.

    I don't have the buckshot manual but do have one of their extensive reloading manuals that covers most everything. I find it good but I also seem to struggle with the capacities they recommend. Everything comes up extremely tight and generally have to shave a gram or two off of the shot charge otherwise the crimp doesn't stay closed. Also, just in general, there are hundreds of shotshell loads in there. One would have to be really in to their craft to ever need that much data with a lot of if overlapping.

    Ive got BPI advantages manual and several others, will be back in Taranaki on the 28th of this month, if you want to come and have a look,
    As hunt gather has said, sum loads are hard to follow, and even worse, if you dont have the correct BPI wads,
    May have sum components, depending on gauge, think i got rid of most of the 12ga stuff, may have the odd bag wads for steel shot.

    Thanks guys.

    Would appriciate a look thanks @southernman . Been curious about moving away from plastic wads for a while now and they seem to like their fibre wads at BPI.
