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

What do you think about this video?

jayman448: hey Dave. I'm thinking of doing this with my .410 because they are just so darn expensive and they don't tend to come in metal shot anyways. what kind of loads would you recommend for a .410 shell?

Anthony Artea: love your vids even got me one of your sling bows ,having said that you loading that primer looks hella dangerous I think if things really come to a head and gotta survive using Bush crafted methods I think I'll just put my Lee load all in my pack it's small won't take up much room plus by the time you load one your way I'll already have 25 made my way keep making the great vids tho much love to you brother

John Doe: I counted the holes in the bird. EXACTLY 40 holes! Dave Canterbury knows all...

milldabeast519: so lets say i load up a shell with a live primer and nothing in it. load it with black powder and pelllets from the muzzle.... would that make it a muzzle loader? im wondering for hunting deer

ultor europae: 9:20 yea put that fire like 1 inch above the powder

Chaplain Dave Sparks: I'm curious about something: What would be the effect of mixing smaller shot with larger shot where the smaller shot could fill in the spaces between the larger shot?

Michael Choate: could linseed oul be used on a jacket like what youre wearinh here to repel water

Evan McNeilage: LOVE the Video Mr. Canterbury, incredibly useful to me as my bush gun is an old Iver Johnson/Schattuck Side-Snap 12G that's over 136 years old at this point, going on rough estimates from production dates.

I used to use Brass MAGTECH shells before I move, but I can't find them anymore, I'm just going to use this method from now on! I even have a ton of BBs leftover from my pellet gun days as a kid!

Hopefully, one day, I can make it down for some classes. My current goal is to save up enough to buy a piece of land up here out in the Canadian Wilderness that I can build a small log cabin on as a retreat for times off work or just whenever I need away from things!

Bob Sullivan: I like your videos and I appreciate the amount of work you are basically giving away here.
But, having said that; Did I just see you smack the business end of a 209 primer into a log while enclosing the bang-bang end of the primer with a small metal tube loosely obstructed with a screwdriver bit while aiming the whole thing at your face?
Did I really see you do that? I must have somehow miss-viewed something. That didn't really happen.....

Bruce Kilgour: Wondering if you can use those inner plastic coils as per modern cartridges?

dopeofthepope: Have you ever tried hot glue instead of wax? I mean when you carry them shells around in your pocket in very hot weather for some time, the wax might be melting and it would be a damn mess. Hot glue won´t melt from even the highest enviromental temperatures... and you can carry those glue sticks with ya just like a candle, so it can be done in the field, too. Hot glue would probably create even more resistance before the gases push the pellets outta the shell, thus increasing the pressure and you might have a few per cent more of a punch... a downside could be that the upper layer of pellets might stay together with the glue and come out as some kinda solid "bullet" but what the hell... there´s still enough pellets underneath that layer. Try and make a video :-)

sz42781: Smokey the bear would frown on that wadding

Time Traveler: Nice work eh

dub yah: How bad is the fowling with using Pyrodex RS?

hogsnplanes: Can't wait to try that!!

Brandon Barr: Steel shot will potentially harm the bore if not properly protected by a certain type of wad with thicker walls.

Christopher Arthur: cool stuff  keep it up 

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?

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.

The Christian Frontiersman: 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?

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
