Hello all! I have purchased a bottle of Hodgdon Titegroup (not Titewad!) and would like to reload some Fiocchi 2 3/4" 12g plastic hulls but can't manage to find a recipe to do so on Hodgdon's website. Am I ill advised to look for recipes from anyone but the powder manufacturer? Thanks for the help!
You have made the same mistake many new reloaders do. You go buy some components and then want a receipe to fit the components you bought.
It doesn't work that way. You find a receipe that you want to reload, and THEN go buy the EXACT components that the receipe calls for. Not the other way around.
NO, Remington data will not work in Fiocchi hulls. Two totally different hull designs. Federal data would probably work if it were listed, but it's not. You simply picked a very poor powder to use in various hulls.
You have two choices. Either get some Remington hulls and follow the data to the letter when reloading them, OR you can try calling Hodgdon's customer service line, and get them to quote a possible receipe to you.
Either way stick strictly to the receipe as written or quoted. You cannot change components in a willy-nilly way. Stick strictly to the receipe.
