    I picked up 2 sealed cans of HS-5 shotgun powder (OLD cans!)

    The powder appears perfect and I have already used cans of similar age from the same auction lot with no problems, but my Hogden load manual is too new to list HS-5 powder.

    Can anyone give me a link to or email me a load for HS 5 in 12 gauge? I would be looking for a trap load with #8 shot or a hunting load with #4 shot (for turkeys).

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hey Mike: email me and I'll send you the data I have available. It's from the Hodgdon Reloading Manual, 23rd edition, (2nd printing - 1979). I had to photograph the relavent pages and they're big (approx. 2.5 mb each) jpg. files. (Too big to post here.) My email address is mo70lightwt at yahoo dot com.

    They're on the way. I sent the first two emails before I realized that the reply address was different than your home address so I re-sent them to both addresses. (Sorry, It's been a busy day!) If you have any trouble reading them let me know.

    The powder was a good find! Happy hunting.

    Shot trap with one of the loads you sent last night and they worked just dandy :)
    Thanks again.
