Has anyone here worked with Longshot Powder? This seems to be a great powder for high velocity with low pressure. I would think that would make it the PERFECT powder for buffered loads. Anyone tried it?
Haven't tried Longshot, I'm more or less addicted to Green Dot and HS7. (In heavy loads, HS7 produces a higher velocity at lower pressures than Longshot). Buffered loads scare the crap out of me. Seen one fixed-choke (Full) gun with the end peeled. Don't know what the load was or what buffer was used, but something obviously was wrong. I've heard too many negatives about buffers for me to try it.
Just my .02.
Best powder around for High velocity,pressure,and great patterns!
Will make the old HS-7 look sick in all loads in 12gauge!
Check out Hodgdon.com for load data!
You can see the pressure/velocity range for both HS-7 and Longshot loads.
