LOOKING FOR 12GA BLANK LOAD RECIPIE

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a decent recipie for loading 12ga blank loads so I can use them for dog training? I reload all my own trap shells and tried to load a few blanks using the same process, minus the shot, with no success. Looking for pointers. Do you increase the powder charge and if so, to how many grains? I load with both Red Dot and Clays. Thanks in advance. Ed

I think there is something that might go inside of these shells. My basis for this thinking is the cost for these shells are darn near equal to steel shot when purchased at a sporting goods store.

I would be interested in knowing how you do it once you perfect the recipe.

What happens when you fire the load?
I don't see how it would fail as the shot really has nothing to do with the fireing of the round.

Unless the wad is getting stuck in the barrel.
Maybe place a wad of paper in a few and try that?

One more though might be to cut the hull down to just above the powder, then place a paper disk ofr the charge and then crimp.
This would require you to re adjust the loader to that length of hull though.

When I loaded just a powder load with a regular wad, the wad would get stuck right at the end of the barrel. I also wouldn't get much of a "bang" either. I'm sure it was because there was no back pressure since the shot weight was missing. I think a little larger powder charge and some felt/paper wads instead of a regular plastic wad might be the trick. Anyone else know from first hand experience? Thanks.

Be sure not to over charge the load, you risk blowing up the breach if you have to hot of a load.

One thing I would also like to point out is that you really don't need the load report to get the dogs attention.
It can hurt there ears as well as yours by exposing them to gun fire.A simple starter pistol will do just fine, save the load bang for shooting a bird down for the dog.

Or shoot blank .22 out of a handgun.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
