Hello
Was trying to find some 20ga loads for 2 3/4" hulls, using 250 grain .452 pistol bullets or 250 grain muzzle loading bullets in a 20 gauge, with a rifled barrel.

Can't seem to find much for information, but I may be typing in all the wrong words.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

All I've seen utilized the Lyman mould. It would be nice to find something I could use with 45 caliber bullets but I haven't seen anything either.

I just "found" and bought, some 250 grain sst Hornady 2 3/4 sabot shells for 15.00 per box of 5.
These will be used this season.
I will, by next fall, have tried some reloaded by me sabot shells, to see if there is an alternative.
I am hoping someone has a load or two I could start with.

The sabots are out there, but for the life of me I can't remember the website. I was just getting into sabot shooting for a hunt on a federal reservation that that was shotgun only. Ice storm cancelled the hunt and reservation later went muzzleloader also, so I stuck the 20 gauge slug barrel in the closet and forgot about it. Good luck on the search.
