Trailboss Pdf
#1
I just found this PDF at the IMR/hodgdon powder site(s)



I knew about trailboss being good for cowboy loads but heck in this article it gives both the max and starting loads for ANY cartridge, lead or jacketed bullet.*grin*

Excellent find!



I may have to get some because I enjoy shooting subsonic loads.



Thank you <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Came across an article before in Handloader magazine talking about reduced loads with trail boss. I believe the gist of it was to put sufficient powder in the case to reach the bottom of the bullet and away you go. I bought some but haven't had a chance to try it out. I figure if nothing else it should make it possible to develop easy recoiling loads for when the kids are old enough to try rifles. <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
Hope......is not a strategy.

Yeah, me too, and in fact, I like "low-to-no-sonic" loads even better.

Now suppressors are illegal, but subloads aren't.

Ever hunt squirrels with a 45 caliber BB gun?*grins*

suppressors are legal in your state.

yeah right *L*

Just like open carry is legal here.

The reality of this place belies that which is written or more properly unmentioned and therefore allowed in law.

It shows that in X that they are legal.

When you're smothering under a stack of blankets, does it matter if a single blanket in that stack has a few holes in it?

like I tried saying earlier, "open carry" isn't mentioned in law at all here either, at least not on a state level, yet concealed carry is specifically mentioned and regulated, thus open carry isn't covered under law and thus thus legal.

But just try open carrying and see if it's reality or fantasy.

I must have mis understood. I thought you could fil out the paper work in your state and get one.

You probably can fill out the paperwork and get one, but that's not legal, that's "permitted".

I have a thread about down loads, squibs or whatever you prefer to call them using Trail Boss. I should update that thread one of these days.



I've ran quite a few through my AR, some more successful than others. You can really quiet down fast movers like the 5.56/.223, while still retaining enough energy to take down big game.



Basically with TB you start off filling up the case to the point of the bottom of the bullet will be seated. Measure it, that is your max. Then start off around 70% of the max. You can go lower, but I noticed a significant decrease in accuracy and a big drop at 100 yards. I found at about 6.5-8 gr the .223 maintained its trajectory pretty good.



Aside from a more quiet round, I can get the energy close to .22 LR, which is ideal for taking small game. Bullets I've tried range from 40 grain ballistic tip Hornady to 75 gr HP. I plan on getting back to it in the spring and create a better log of my experiments.
