Re: 8 bore paper shells.

I believe I can source some primers here if they are not standard 209s. I have a couple of books with reloading recipes and component sources written by a fellow here, that performs ammunition pressure testing for industry and private citizens. He has a good selection of low pressure loads of smokel...

Re: 8 bore paper shells.

I found mine at a skeet range it was in bad shape. Had to strip and relay the barrels, rebrown and make a new spring for the top lev...

8 bore paper shells.

I reload for my 8 bore with industrial plastic shells that I resize down to fit in my shotgun. After 1 reloading the black powder pretty much ruins the case.. I have been unable to locate any paper 8 or 4 bore paper cases here in the US. Have any of you in the UK have a source of empty's or loaded o...

Re: Repair or restock

http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq216/simcgunner/Repaired_zpshpb33fit.jpg Before starting restocking I tried some high tec. cement. A little blending and touch up of the checkering. Looks ok to me. If it breaks again it will not be at the same spot. I did some testing on some scrap walnut its a ...
