It's a little expensive and the recoil was a real bear. Ammo for the 203 mm (8") guns on the first ship I was on. Powder case and projectiles.

Projectiles, 350# each.

That much powder probably made reclaiming the projectile difficult.

:D

Do they make a Lee Loader for that caliber? Not sure if my 10# sledge would do the trick however. :rolleyes:
