Re: low pressure 12g loads

What gun? Chamber length? What do you consider low pressure? Weight of payload? The powder manufacturers have numerous lower pressure (sub 9000 psi) loads listed on their websites for 1 oz and under loadings. If you're wanting to load for shorter (2 5/8", 2 9/16" or 2 1/2") chambers, just about any 2 3/4" load will roll crimp into a shorter hull.

Re: low pressure 12g loads

its a 1918 Ithaca Victory grade SBT.32"
it most likely has 2 9/16th" chambers but they can and I will take it out to 2 3/4".
the flues frame its built around are known to crack if modern ammo is used , but this usually happens on the doubles
i'm still trying to find the pressure thresholds that I can't exceed,
but I'm probably looking at something in the 1oz to 1 1/8oz payload of #9 for trap.

How low of a pressure are you looking for?
