I have reloaded many years ago and want to start it up again because of the expense of field loads. So maybe I'm a bit dangerous because I can remember some stuff but not enough. So .....I have a few questions for you guys. I would like to make a 20g. 1oz field load that is at 1300fps or greater in a 2.75 hull. I'll be using either copper plated or magnum shot. Now i've looked at the Hodgdon web site and downloaded their recipe book and have been studying it for some time. Now some questions and observations..... what is the big difference between longshot and 800X powder? It seems one gets higher fps with the 800X but I see most use the longshot on this forum. Does one burn cleaner than the other? Is one less expensive than the other? I also see recipe's in one type of hull and that same recipe is not listed for another hull. Does the type of hull really make that much of a difference? For example ... using a Federal hull it list Powder: 800x-21.0 gr , Primer: Rem 209P, Wad: Rem SP 20, = 1325fps. Using any other type of hull ... the recipe is not listed nor is a similar recipe even listed.
