Curmudgeon's Loading Tips
TYPE: 1-1/4 (lead) or 7/8 (steel) The 12ga PT1253 posesses Multi-Metal™ capabilities with a multi-folding cushion section, large accommodating shotcup with four 45-degree slits set in thick (.045") high-density plastic. The PT1253 accommodates steel, lead, ITX shot and just about anything that may come along. The PT1253 has three sections: A gas seal, a multi-section crush section and the angle-slit shotcup.
SPECS: Overall length is 1.780", shotcup depth is 1.110", wall thickness is .045" with four pre-cut 45-degree angled slits. The articulated cushion column (.450" length) offers adjustable heights permitting the use of many propellants in varied densities. The PT1253 is capable of being loaded in a number of straight-wall hulls and zips through progressive reloading tools or single-stage reloading tools. A 7/8-ounce load of #7 steel shot at about 1300 FPS seems to be ideal for non-toxic clay targets. This load of shot fits ideally into the PT1253 shotcup.
NOTE: The reduced internal volume of tapered target hulls (Win AA-HS and Rem STS) do not function with the PT1253 wad.
