CAUTION: Due to the sealing properties
of Puff-Lon Filler, there will be a slight increase
in pressure (but a higher consistency that ever
before possible) and velocity with all bullets and
a slight loss of accuracy with boat tail bullets.
All loads should be 10% below SAAMI
maximum recommendations. Crimp all straight
wall cases. Lube all bullets that have lube
groves. Wash hands before handling smoking
Instructions for Puff-Lon filler:
Quick Version: Load gunpowder, load Puff-Lon to top of brass, seat bullet.
- Load gunpowder charges into brass as usual. (Below maximum charge)
With B P use your compression die. NOTE: For best consistency, you
may want to load slower burning and lesser charge of gunpowder to
shoot a slightly slower projectile.
- Load Puff-Lon Filler on top of gunpowder and fill to top of your brass.
With B P you may add grease wad to top. (Puff-Lon can be added with
a standard powder measurer or funnel and scoop). NOTE: When filled
to top of case, place a clean plate under your case to catch excess
filler, which may be recycled.
- Seat your bullet as usual. Compress the column of Puff-Lon at least
20% in the cartridge. Compressed loads are necessary to hold
gunpowder in p[lace. NOTE: When using a high volume (over 50% case
capacity or shallow seated bullets) of Puff-Lon, tap down or use a
ramrod to compress Puff-Lon then refill to top of brass.
- Clean gun barrel prior to using Puff-Lon.
- After shooting Puff-Lon, we recommend cleaning the barrel as little as
possible but always oil before storing away. The next time you shoot,
run a new oiled patch then a dry patch down the barrel so there will be
little or no setting-in shots. Use a bore cleaner only if copper or lead
fouling becomes significant.
