28 Gauge Loads


Dear Technoid :

Please gaze into your AA crystal ball and get me a couple of hunting loads for my new 28 ga. I have 800X and Win. AA hulls to work with, wads have not been purchased yet but probably will be Win.AA

Thanks
Bruce

Dear Bruce,

I really don’t get into giving out specific reloading data. It keeps the lawyers at bay. That said, 800-X is not really one of my favorite 28 gauge powders, but the IMR manual does list numerous target loads for the 28. I tend to pick ones which incorporate the same brand wad as hull. The only real problem with 800-X is that is has very large fluffy flakes which make metering difficult. Alliant Unique is my favorite 28 gauge powder. It has smaller flakes and meters more easily than 800-X, but the Winchester ball powders meter even better. The problem with 540 in the 28 is that it burns too hot and eats those precious cases up lickety split. Unique has proven to be the best compromise for me in the 28.

Best regards,

Trapping The Trigger


Dear Esteemed and Honorable Technoid:

I recently purchased my first ever O/U, a Browning Ultra Sporter. I have been shooting this gun for about 6 weeks and every once in a while the second barrel would not fire on doubles. Finally someone told me that I have to “let up” on the trigger between shots. Is this normal or a correctable problem?

By the way, I have been devouring the archives and have learned many new and wonderful things. Great site…first thing I check every morning.

Bob

Dear Bob,

“Esteemed and honorable”! Well, all right. I must be moving up in the world. Usually it is just “Hey, you!”

“Trapping” the trigger is a not-uncommon shooting malady and, if left uncorrected, can become somewhat akin to flinching. Your gun has an adjustable trigger and you might find that moving the trigger further to the rear will solve things. Also, getting used to your gun a bit will help as will taking a higher hold on the pistol grip with your right hand. Try moving the trigger rearward first.

Best regards,

Bruce Buck
