Great loading data for 12 gauge

Recommended Posts

I have been reloading many years and about 1 1/2 months ago got a Saiga 12 so I figured I would make a good GP load for it, I hit home this weekend. The best load weather it be bird shot, any buck shot, even lymans sabots (I pour my own) and smooth bore slug, I have gotten consistantly proven groups, very simple recipie.

Winn AA hulls

Winn 209 primers

24 grains Universal Clays this is important, Universal Clays has the perfect burn rate that I was trying to achive out of some 15 or 16 odd powders I tried.

WA112 wads

1 1/8 oz shot or 9 pellets 00 buck and so on

your gas setting will be on 1

After I was done and thought I found the load, I loaded some 500 mixed Bird shot and my hand rolled 1 oz sabots I got incredibable patterns at 65 ft. and 2 1/2" groups on the sabots at 50 yds.

I hope this will help some of you shotshell reloaders save time and money,

CORRECTION 9 pellets #1 Buck in a WAA112F114 wad, you can only get 6 pellets #2 buck. Sorry for the error...

TS: Did you cast your own 1oz. sabot? If so, what mold?

Where do you buy the wad? I can't find them anywhere online. :eek:

Are you talking about the WAA12 from Midway? Midway WAA12 wad

I've been using this similar load:

 

Win AA hulls

Win 209 primers

26 grains Universal Clays

WAA112F114 wads

9 pellets 00 buck

 

The crimp comes out really really ugly for me. I gotta figure out what is wrong with my crimps.

I am gearing up to do some reloading of buck and slugs for my Saiga, I am thinking about the Lyman 525 sabot mold, is this the one that you used?
