Reloading 12GA With (Pyrodex) Black Powder In The Field




What do you think about this video?

Bruce Kilgour: Wondering if you can use those inner plastic coils as per modern cartridges?

dopeofthepope: Have you ever tried hot glue instead of wax? I mean when you carry them shells around in your pocket in very hot weather for some time, the wax might be melting and it would be a damn mess. Hot glue won´t melt from even the highest enviromental temperatures... and you can carry those glue sticks with ya just like a candle, so it can be done in the field, too. Hot glue would probably create even more resistance before the gases push the pellets outta the shell, thus increasing the pressure and you might have a few per cent more of a punch... a downside could be that the upper layer of pellets might stay together with the glue and come out as some kinda solid "bullet" but what the hell... there´s still enough pellets underneath that layer. Try and make a video :-)

sz42781: Smokey the bear would frown on that wadding

Time Traveler: Nice work eh

dub yah: How bad is the fowling with using Pyrodex RS?

hogsnplanes: Can't wait to try that!!

Brandon Barr: Steel shot will potentially harm the bore if not properly protected by a certain type of wad with thicker walls.

Christopher Arthur: cool stuff  keep it up 

John W: Carry real black powder it will last forever even if it got wet. Just let it dry and it is good to go. Pyrodex  becomes useless if it got wet. Even if you let it dry. Pyrodex remain useless once wet.

markonj1: Just checking would it matter if the power you use is FFFg or FFg?  Is the a 100 g measure the same for FFFg and FFg?

Calo Q.: thank you for clarifying and expanding. I I may say so u´re the best channel on the web. I thank you and wranglestar for pointing you out to me.

Orlando Herrera: Thanks for posting all these videos Dave. You could easily withhold all this great information as many instructors do. But you are not greedy that way. I am sure that I speak for many You Tubers when I say we appreciate what you share.
I do have two questions concerning this load. Will this work in pump action and can you recommend a recipe for 20 gauge using Pyrodex with this technique please? 

Kevin Price: I had been wondering about using my single 12 like a black powder and now I wonder no more. thanks for the info

Bob Brua: nice video i like your jacket looks like wool where did you purchase it at ?keep up the good videos thanx bob in hollidaysburg pa

lion king: Nice I like that... 

Ben Garrison: You should really use more substantial wadding than that.
You'll get much higher shot velocity.

fpsairsoft: About how many times can you safely reload a shell

Chris Kelhoffer: Subscribed

pops wrench: two thots after shoosting muzzleloader style few times ;
first , careful how much WAX used if use it . wax good seal for carry ammo , but a few decades ago , we used wax to make BLANKS for a noise show in halloween scarefest in woods for teens . wax FOULED barrel after 2-3 shots  , even for blanks, just enuf wax to seal top wad.
   second , i plan test muzzleload using shell for simple primer carrier and muzzleload shell in gun to protect shell area .  all theze idears are good and Dave knows his stuff !!

Larry Tischler: Another real good characteristic of black powder is it does not HAVE to work at high  pressure.  Smokeless modern powder must be loaded to near the max or you may get squib (failed) loads.  Also these smokeless modern powders require assembly under .pressure  which cannot be reliably  done by hand or w/o a real reloading press. As a shotshell reloader for over 40 years, I thank you for bringing us this simple emergency concept.  Now if we had 12 ga. pyrodex load for a 40 to 45 cal pistol bullet in simple homemade sabot that conjured up 1050 fps, that would be a medium game load for short range.
