Can someone copy and paste the publised data for Tightgroup in the 12 gauge. I have read that 16 grains is called for, I do not have the hull, primer & wad. I looked for the data and did not find it.
Nice write up, thank youOK, here's a quick tour:
Open site: Hodgdon Landing | Hodgdon
Click Shotgun icon
Select the shell gauge and type from the Step 1 and 2 pull-down menus. Yeah, you gotta identify the "hull" you will be loading.
Select the Payload type - you probably want to use lead shot from Step 3
Select the shot weight from Step 4 (those are in ounces)
(Optional) If you want to narrow down the powder list you can pick a Manufacturer, but the lookup still works if you don't know that Titegroup is a Hodgdon brand. Step 5, or skip Step 5
Step 6- chose Titegroup as the powder.
Click Update Data button and you should see the Titegroup loads for the selections you have made.
For example, there's at least 75 loads published for 12 Gauge Remington STS shells, with 1 ounce of lead shot and Titegroup powder. To show all the 12 gauge loads would be hundreds of loads, maybe even thousands.
If you are loading some low volume or hunting shell, then there is a good chance you won't find it among the choices of the Shell Type list. That is what most commonly makes it hard to find a load for, say, a Win-eral Super Duper Magnum 3.5" hull you might find in a goose pit. Only the common hulls get the efforts needed to research and test loads for publishing.
good luck, garrisonjoe
Current Win AA hulls - use the published name of "Winchester AA HS" name. Hodgdon makes the assumption that the older Win AA Compression Formed (CF) hulls are exactly the same internal capacity as the Winchester AA HS hulls, but in many loads, the two hulls don't quite load and crimp the same. But you probably don't have a lot of the Compression Formed hulls, as they were last made about 12 years ago or so. So let other folks load any CF hulls you find.Can someone clarify what lines to select for the recently available 2 3/4" store bought Win AA, Remington Gun Club, Federal Top Gun, and Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics hulls?
Just keep picking them until you get the one with data. As long as you are using/selecting lead shot data the data is good. All Rem target hulls are internally the same (STS, gun club, clay&field, game load). All Win target hulls are internally the same (AAhs, super target and I believe universals although I have not loaded them to verify). And Win and Rem target hulls are the same aside from some length differences that will change your crimps.Thanks guys. Now if I can just figure out which of the several Hodgdon Rem STS and Win AA menu items to use, I'll be set. I may have to pick each one and see if there are any differences between them. Maybe they're the same data.
