When it comes to 12-gauge powder charges, the upper limit is a 3-1/4 drams equivalent charge, which gives the 1-1/8ounce shot charge a published (3-foot instrumental, coil) velocity of about 1,255 f.p.s. There is no established lower line on velocity, and many of the competitors are using the so-called "Lite" loads which have published velocities of about 1,125 f.p.s.
The lite loads with speeds below 1,145 f.p.s., and more often between 1, 100- 1, 1 25 f.p.s., have surprised people with their on-target impacts, something no doubt true due to:
A modern 3 drams equivalent trap load with 1-1/8 ounces of shot, for instance, has a muzzle velocity of about 1,200 f.p.s., which is roughly what the older black powder loads churned up with a powder charge of 3 actual drams of black fuel.
The 3-1/4 drams rounds, often known as the "live pigeon" load, have a normal velocity of 1,220 f.p.s., while the 3-3/4 drams equivalent one runs about 1,330 f.p.s..
For big game of the thin-skinned species, the .270 Weatherby moves the 130-grain Speer spitzer to 3,340 f.p.s. (53,500 c.u.p.) with 70.5/RL-19 or about 3,400 f.p.s.
