Reloading 12GA With (Pyrodex) Black Powder In The Field




What do you think about this video?

Kevin Price: I had been wondering about using my single 12 like a black powder and now I wonder no more. thanks for the info

John W: Carry real black powder it will last forever even if it got wet. Just let it dry and it is good to go. Pyrodex becomes useless if it got wet. Even if you let it dry. Pyrodex remain useless once wet.

Calo Q.: thank you for clarifying and expanding. I I may say so u´re the best channel on the web. I thank you and wranglestar for pointing you out to me.

Orlando Herrera: Thanks for posting all these videos Dave. You could easily withhold all this great information as many instructors do. But you are not greedy that way. I am sure that I speak for many You Tubers when I say we appreciate what you share. I do have two questions concerning this load. Will this work in pump action and can you recommend a recipe for 20 gauge using Pyrodex with this technique please? 

Christopher Arthur: cool stuff keep it up 

Bob Brua: nice video i like your jacket looks like wool where did you purchase it at ?keep up the good videos thanx bob in hollidaysburg pa

Stenhård Ståfräs: You should really use more substantial wadding than that. You'll get much higher shot velocity.

Larry Tischler: Another real good characteristic of black powder is it does not HAVE to work at high pressure. Smokeless modern powder must be loaded to near the max or you may get squib (failed) loads. Also these smokeless modern powders require assembly under .pressure which cannot be reliably done by hand or w/o a real reloading press. As a shotshell reloader for over 40 years, I thank you for bringing us this simple emergency concept. Now if we had 12 ga. pyrodex load for a 40 to 45 cal pistol bullet in simple homemade sabot that conjured up 1050 fps, that would be a medium game load for short range.

lion king: Nice I like that... 

markonj1: Just checking would it matter if the power you use is FFFg or FFg? Is the a 100 g measure the same for FFFg and FFg?

fpsairsoft: About how many times can you safely reload a shell

pops wrench: two thots after shoosting muzzleloader style few times ; first , careful how much WAX used if use it . wax good seal for carry ammo , but a few decades ago , we used wax to make BLANKS for a noise show in halloween scarefest in woods for teens . wax FOULED barrel after 2-3 shots , even for blanks, just enuf wax to seal top wad. second , i plan test muzzleload using shell for simple primer carrier and muzzleload shell in gun to protect shell area . all theze idears are good and Dave knows his stuff !!

Nathan Ray: since I will be using pyrodex like you, can I use 209 muzzleloader primers, that are just for muzzleloaders?

Chris Kelhoffer: Subscribed

xzqzq: I like loading BP for center-fire rifle & pistol. Have not tried shotgun as yet....The BP absorbs moisture, and I have ignition problems.... I dry the BP under an incandescent bulb, and use some 777 over the primer to get the Pyrodex ignited.
