This is a unique high performance 40MM casing that does not require a blank cartridge for propulsion. It utilizes a 1 ½" Remington small pistol primer and has it's own high pressure chamber machined into the base housing. The vent plug is removable via a hex drive to load smokeless powder and a vent plug wad. 

 

Payload Wads are Not Included, but can be purchased here.

What's in the new design?  
The new design features our new, patented, proven, high-performance lift-charge base. Thus, with proper care this shell is capable of lasting a life time.

The best option for wads is the .016 Copper. One casing was loaded 15 times with the 8 grain loads and a solid carrier for weight and resistance, and the casing and vent plug performed perfectly (THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED AND IS DANGEROUS). Each loading had very nice recoil, no primer push, and no signs of too much stress.

Each load in the table above was loaded 5 times, in the same casing, to check for power, and to make sure the loads were safe, and could be duplicated without casings wearing out, or the loads causing stress that might cause a casing to fail. These are simply guidelines and anyone attempting to load their casings must understand injury and/or death can be a result of loading your own shell. Pace Launcher Casings LLC. cannot be held responsible for injury caused using our loading guidelines as they are simply "guidelines" and cannot be guaranteed to work.
