LOAD OF THE WEEK

COWBOY ACTION

Admittedly, The Curmudgeon knows little about this area, but with the number of calls he’s fielding from interested cowboy action shooters, he’s starting to learn more. Of course, The Curmudgeon knows a thing or two about loading and ammunition. We are making progress!  

The goal is to make a number of different types of shotshells for competition shooting with black powder substitute.  Oh, and one of the rules is to keep the feet-per-second velocity at or under 1,000 FPS.  The scheme is to make these loads with a shotshell reloading tool, like the PW 375C.  HODGDON Triple-7 (FFG) was examined and the manufacturer indicates this black powder substitute reacts well with the 209-type primer.
