Ballistic Products, 28 ga load question

Has any one tried the Fiocchi, 15 gr Universal Clays, SG28-II, 3/4 oz shot load on page 243 of the Advantages manual? I think the wad is incorrect, as the available room for 3/4 oz of shot is far too large. I'm guessing the original SG28 or the AAHS wad is more appropriate.

I sent an email to BP, waiting for a response from the Curmudgeon.

I have Ballistic Products 16 Ga manual and I have found that several loads that I have tried are way off, in terms of proper filling for crimping. I don't use their data at all any more.

I have loaded plenty of Fiocchi, Federal and Euro trash hulls with the Red Duster / CB 5034 HS wads. It's far more cost effective.

Aside from the fact that the Red Duster wads are 33% cheaper (sounds better than $0.01 per wad), they are the correct size!

I used the corresponding Winchester HS wad and it worked perfectly.

Just received a bag of Clay Busters for both the AA (1034)and HS (3034)shells.

Looks like rain all weekend so it will be next Saturday before I try them.

Think the Curmudgeon just got this one wrong. Not good in a reloading manual.

Thanks

Well, I've heard nothing from the Curmudgeon. I just fired 5 of the Fiocchi 28 ga, 14.7 gr Universal, Winchester HS wads, 209 primer over a chronograph. 5 shots, min (1st shot) 1196 fps, max 1245 fps with three at 1222 fps. No problems with extraction (CZ SxS), no signs of high pressure. I shoot 5-stand tomorrow, think they will be just fine.

I'll let you know if I hear anything from BP. I think the listed load (wad) is just incorrect. Guess I'll ignore the Advantages book, as mentioned bu df06 above.

Lee,

You might try sending a PM to NVguide. I know he shoots some pretty heavy 28ga loads. Uses them for ducks, geese, and sandhills. He might just have the info you are looking for.
