Anyone have any load data for 10 guage. I'm primarily interested in something around ounce and a half. The only data I've seen listed is Blue Dot.

Have you tried Alliant's web site. they have all kinds of loads downloadable on PDF. You should be able to find what you're looking for there.

I have recently develop a 10 ga load for my SXS. What gun are you loading for, and what will the loaded cartridges be used for?

The Alliant sight is where I got the Blue Dot data from.
Thanks for the welcome.
I'm shooting a late model BPS Stalker. I'm primarily looking to save money. I'm paying $25 for a box of Remington shells. I can't figure any other way to get hulls. Alliant lists 1 5/8 oz. shot at 1,285 fps and 8,500 psi with 44 grains of Blue Dot. This is the only load I've been able to find for less than 2 oz.. The only wad I've seen is SP 10. One of the powder manufacturers said the Lyman manual lists a load for IMR PB and Solo 1250 might work. Thanks for the replies

I worked up a recipe for 2.7" 10ga field loads, for an old Damascus double gun. I wasn't able to find any load data "anywhere".

I asked because I thought you may be looking for something like that.

During my searches, I found a lot of modern data for 3.5" 10ga., there's plenty of recipies out there for those.

The lightest load that Hodgdon and IMR have are 2 oz.. I guess I'll go with the Blue Dot although I would be interested in hearing about Mosko's load workup.

I would go to this website, join and get the load info from Sherman Bell. They are a great bunch of folks.

I got a good load off of the BPI site also using 30 grains of Herco and 1-1/4 oz lead shot and roll crimped.

Looks like I figured out how to upload a file to this message so here are the Sherman Bell Loads from the Double Gun Journal in a 3 page pdf file
