Brandon Barr: Steel shot will potentially harm the bore if not properly protected by a
certain type of wad with thicker walls.
Time Traveler: Nice work eh
dub yah: How bad is the fowling with using Pyrodex RS?
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.
hogsnplanes: Can't wait to try that!!
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
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.
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
Ben Garrison: You should really use more substantial wadding than that.
You'll get much higher shot velocity.
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.
TheMrbumpas: rimmed cartriges like .38special [ straight wall,rimmed] can be reloaded
with BP or equivalent also. Sure it's better to use modern gear, and BP is
dirty blah...blah... but it's better than no ammo. Good video, and btw 410
shot shells can reloaded and fired in a .45 colt chamber,used to make them
befor I found factory shot loads for revolvers
THESOUTHWASRIGHT: NO SIR
SheridanBoii99: Also can I do this for 20ga
Simplemansnature: Dave, I like your simple reloading kit. I have a Lee Loader Deluxe hand
loading press. I also agree with your opinion on using larger shot, more
versitile, more humane on something big enough to not require a slug.
However, if I'm not mistaken, Ohio law forbids the use of anything bigger
than #4 birdshot on game???
mapbike: I found some grea data on loading shotshells in all popular gauges with
black powder that I thought I would share here, as with any of this
reloading stuff this is for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY! you will have to
put 2 & 2 together inorder to decifer the web addy here but it's not hard,
very informative stuff. 3 w's * tbullock * kom/bpsg * html (just add the
w's & the dots and be sure to get everything else in as well and you will
get there just fine. Enjoy.....! Peace, mapbike
GodschildinNC: Dave, I like the way that you did that. You should be able to close the top
of the plastic case with a little work, and then seal that shut with the
wax. You could loop your string around the magnet and back through itself
instead of having to retie it all the time. Geoff
69penetrator69: You could go one step further: according to the Army Improvised Munitions
Handbook, you can actually refill the primer cup using 2-3 strike anywhere
barry cox: everything i know about hard tack its better to twice bake it , its really
hard then but they would soke it in coffee or some other type of liquid to
make it easy to eat i will last for years .
bhubejr: This came from the ohio hunting regulations book. During the statewide
muzzleloader season and youth deer gun season it is unlawful to hunt legal
game with shot shells containing shot larger than #4. Waterfowl hunters
must use nontoxic shot of any size.
GRADERFL: Is 100 grains the max charge?
ra777wow: Hope to see more good stuff like this dave :D
1guyin10: As long as it is trimmed down to match a normal load it will feed just
fine. There is nothing you are changing with this load that would impact
how it feeds.
John Gruber: @azreal289 i am sorry to say that the bb's will damage your barrel as their
coatings are shallow and the compressive forces are well beyond what a bb
gun can deliver. The coating protects bb guns but wont do a thing for your
cammie500: would 100 grains of powder work with 20g and .410 shells? if not how many
grains should i use?
Crashtest Bushcraft: good series but i do not se the big advantage as the primers cant be
improvised. But you can shoot with all kinds of funny stuff. you could
might as well stock .22 ammo as you still need to stock the primers. its
really amazing what you have build up with your youtube channel, online
store, survival school and all. Its inspiring to follow here on youtube
dirtypp: So it was a hand loaded black powder shot shell to shoot from a regular
single shot shotgun? Didn't you work up the proper charge for the best
birddog390: how many grains for a 20 gauge
Ethan Hicks: Should i get a single or pump i cant decide?
FullSpectrum Survivalist: They will reload way more than 5 times, I was reading just a little while
ago on a forum in England, this Australian guy said his friend has reloaded
the same shell over 50 times. I would go for minimum powder load to get the
job done, and then they should last a long time. You can reload a plastic
shell more than once, think about it, brass will last a long time in the
use. I'll probably take 25 or more brass shells preloaded already.
KILLAassasin7: i dont kno much about guns but i think these would work in a pump action
gun if u trimmed all the excess plastic off or used the all brass shells, i
dont actually know though
TheDave570: no, start out with the powder load equal to the caliber and work up !!
762xDevin: is that FF powder?
vettelover2009: this is a scenario if he is out in the wilderness lost and these happen to
be items he might have with him at the time...possibly getting lost on a
hunt...its hypothetical...there are so many variables to consider...it's
just a suggestive video
Rayce Wood: Would using animal fat instead of Bee's wax also work if you were to run
out of bee's wax?
Dereck Thomas: what are all the measerments loads powder load shot weight
adamdoiron73: Hey just wondering what type of knife that is? I really like it
MrKnux55: Do you have to use bees wax
BlltPrffAsssn: @1973Saved the concern from steel shot is that if you have a rifled barrel
that u shoot slugs and shot from the steel shot can and will eventually
file your rifled barrel into a smoothbore, where lead shot conforms to the
grooves inside the barrel steel shot stays its shape and stays hard, copper
softer than steel will usually smear inside the barrel and could damage it.
david2011621: I've even use'd good & plenty candy to reload shells it's a hard candy .
And chap stick as a cap to hold every thing in the shell good for small
game. Just an idea.
Melting Sky: The hard part is the primer. You can make your own black powder or low
explosive powder/propellant pretty easily but the primer is not easy. I
would love to see how to make a primer from scratch.
ra777wow: I tryed this and it works real well.Also he suggested getting a box of the
brass shot shells to reload and they last for a long time !
