Amen to what Dogchaser said, a PSI is a PSI & a LUP is a LUP. they are different units. Cookoff, Yea, it is fine to ignore LUP data, if you have other data. Bar & gram are metric units for which there is a conversion to psi. Everything in the metric system, at least originally, was based on a cubic centimeter of water at standard state. It has since been updated to more precise standards. The English system? It is a stretch to call it a system. Mostly it is a collection of unrelated oddball units. I am sure you know that better than me. I once worked for a professor of structural engineering that taught at a military college. He would go into a coma if anybody mentioned the metric system. Nobody likes to change what they are accustomed to doing!
BTW, good show oldthompson!

Max pressure with the lead crusher was 10,500 lead units of pressure. For 12 ga. 2 3/4" & 3" loads.


ty. Perhaps the 10,500 figure explains the reluctance to pressure over 10,000 by of some reloaders that started reloading in the LUP era.

Yep.i still got the load chart that came with my 12ga. Lee Load All II which I paid $29.99 for brand new. Pretty simple chart. It does not even list powder charges by weight, just bushing number. Gotta flip the page over for what a bushing is "supposed" to drop. Just skimming over it looks like the general rule of thumb is move up a bushing from plastic hulls when using paper hulls or plastic with paper base wads. It's just one sheet, and there some hefty loads listed, including 2-3/4" 1-1/2oz. -not recommended for plastic base wad hulls- .134 bushing of HS-6 which works out to 30.8 grains according to the Lee tables.

Yet no wad is specified, so why bother listing pressure?

:lol:

In that case then drams of black powder equivalent is not obsolete either. It is just arcane.


My Lee Load All Data Chart indicates that 29 grains of Herco with 1-1/4oz shot is a 3-3/4 Dram Equivalent load. For you kids that means it'll be tough to get a follow up shot when using that one.
