    Folks,

    I purchased some of this Spherical Buffer (PSB) a long time ago while reloading rifle cartridges. I never used it having thought that I wasn't sure if it was safe or not. I was under the impression it was used like a filler. Can anyone elaborate on its use? Anyone here use it?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    That is used in shotgun hunting loads. Has no use for handgun or rifle loading.

    Is that what they used for fill when loading larger pelleted shells, to fill in the gaps between the pellets and to limit the number of pellets, yet still fill the case evenly?

    Yep. But it’s not to limit the pellets. It’s to help cushion them so that the pellets are not deformed. Along with the shot cup wads.
