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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
