TFL Shotgunners?

This powder is fromn a company called Ramshot and it is intended for large cased rifle cartridges like the 30-378 Wby etc.
I don't think it has gotten out to the public yet, I have only seen it used once in an article in Tactical Shooter about the .30 Renzi cartridge.

House,
Haven't used it yet. In their new 2000 Basic Reloading Manual that is given away at many stores, Hodgdon describes the new spherical Longshot powder as "the most versatile heavey field propellant Hodgdon has ever produced....This propellant provides true magnum velocities with superb patterns. In addition, LONGSHOT is the best choice for competitors shooting "race" games such as "Buddy" shoots, "Annie Oakleys" and more."
In their usage chart they show it between HS-7 and H110, used for target loads in 12, 20, and 28 ga, and heavy field loads for 10, 12, 20, and 28 ga.

I picked this one out for you using some common components.
12ga 2 3/4" Win AAhulls, CCI209M primer, WAA12 wad, 30.9gr of LONGSHOT, pushing 1 1/8 oz should give approx 1420 fps at 10,000 psi.

Hodgdon has their basic loading manual online at www.hodgdon.com for lots of other loads with this powder.

House,

It looks like there are two different powders with the same name? Sorry for the confusion.
