Just Jawin At Camp / anyone reload Rio blue steel goose loads?
« Last post by D45/70 on November 30, 2017, 03:00:04 PM »
First off;
 My load is a published load I have been using for a LONG time. I just cant find my Rio pamphlet it came from.
 We do a lot of goose/duck hunting on the river after Big game and before it ALL freezes up.
 On out last outing you would think My boy and I where shooting blanks and the D-I-L had all the "loaded" ones.
 She flat out kicked our buts, that trip.
 My boy has a Winchester 1100 pump and mine is a rem 870 super express, D-I-L just got a Stoeger auto.
 We all run a .669 choke ( very tight) . I do the shot shell reloading the boy does the brass stuff.
 We have found that a Rio blue 3" hull ,Fiocchi 616 ( ? ) primer 35 gr steel powder , TPS wad and 71 #2 steel shot (240 gr) and 46 #B steel shot (260 gr)
 That is just under 1 1/4 oz. ,the smaller shot has to be on the bottom at 1500 fps is death ( normally ) on Canada geese and golden eye ducks.
 50 and 60 yards work well, not so good on a gadwall that sometimes slips up on you under 30 yards and that really is not the right load but, dead is dead.
 I have checked the speed with our Magnetospeed in different temperatures and there very consistent.
 We have not put the new auto on paper yet but what we saw I would say it is putting the spread right on target.
 We have printed out shotguns and at 40 yards a 30" circle will get close to 90% of the shot , you can see the #2/ #B spread .
 Most the B are in 15/20 inch and the #2 will fill in the rest, few flyers of either.
 I weigh every powder load and that are exact, I use primer trays to actually count the pellets, never mix the two, the weight may very slightly but the count is exact.
Anyway what do you goose slayers use ?

More welding required .
IF IF IF  this year it will be a "Hard Water" test.
As in ice. Only thing open here is the river.
I'm thinking that may be an "Up the creek with out a paddle" thing
:D
:D Yeah, might be better to wait until Spring!

O0 And now comes the last of the welding?

YUP

I did a no load, no prop today.
 All looked good. The clutch started to move at around 1800rpm.
 I did not have my laser tack on the hub but it looked slower then the drive.
 It starts out at 3x1.
 As I increased the motor RPM the clutches both moved, as expected, the clutches
 Topped out at 3000 RPM, right where I was hoping.
 I should be like .70x1 there ,I would guess around the top end for the prop, 3100RPM.
 I didn't run it long but It was quiet and smooth and looked to be running true.
