I have started casting #4 Buckshot to reload 12 ga shells. I am having a difficult time finding loading data for buckshot. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I don't have the manual here with me, but I recall the lyman manuals have data for buck loads.

If I don't forget I'll check when I get home.
