stevekost Posted February 1, 2014 Share Posted February 1, 2014 I am new to reloading and a newbie here. I have bought clays and now I have found that it is a fast powder and can cause pressure problems for major so I was told it is great for minor loads and training. I am using a sti edge stock barrel 5" and a 12 lb wolff spring and aftec extractor. I need to load to 1.180" oal or higher due to feeding problems. Components are cci 500 small primers, 180 gr tmj truncated cone and once fired brass from my gun before the tune up. What happens if I start with the min load as suggested in the books with clays? I understand that with increased oal the pressure drops, so will the min load ( I believe it states around 3 gr on the Hodgdon site and 3.3 max and I think it was tested in a 4" barrel) be enough to send the projectile down the barrel. Do I need to go below the min load data due to the longer barrel. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
