I see from a post about the 38 Special and shot capsules that the Speer #13 has data for it. Does this manual have data for the 45 and shot capsules?

I just got some capsules and no data is on the box. Years ago, there was data on the 38/357 and the 44 shot capsule boxes.

Any help with the 45 LC would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,

BCB

The Speer #13 doesn't list loads for the 45 Colt ..... maybe #14 does. You can safely use the same data for 45 Colt shotshell capsules as the 44 Mag because they are very low pressure. Speer recommends #7 1/2, 8 or 9 shot. 1.60" COL

Iowegan,

Thanks. I wondered about the 44 data. I reload for it and the 357 using the shot capsules. I also use 410 wads for some in the 44. But, the 45 LC is my venture now. It has become my favorite cast boolit shooter. The shot loads will increase its versatility. Thanks again...BCB
