    I bought some Promo powder recenlty and thought I would try some 1 oz loads. I checked on line and found the Alliant reloading manual but can't find a 1 oz recipe using Win AA hulls. The "chart" jumps from 7/8ths to 1 1/8 oz of shot but I don't see anything for a 1 oz load. Anyone help with a recipe for 1 oz of shot @ 1200 fps using a claybuster wad ?

    O.K., at your own risk here is my load. 19.5 grains Promo,1100cb wad, ched primer and the AA hull for a one ounce load.. That'll put you at faster than 1200fps. So back it off some for 1200fps. Jim

    17.5 grains will get you right at or just under1200 fps, crushes 16 yd targets.

    Johnr is right on. 16.5 is lighter and a better pattern for 16yd and great for a women to shoot.

    I use 16.5gr Promo, CB1100, 1oz #8 or 8-1/2, and Fio 616 or Win 209 (depending on how cold it is). Very soft shooting, excellent patterns, and more than ample at 16yds. Chichay

    We use Promo and like it very much. My son's favorite load is AA hull, CB1100-12 wad, 1oz lead, 18.0 gr promo and a Win 209 primer. Expert at Aliant said we could sub the Noble Sport primer safely in this load. This is advertised at 1200fps and 8900psi.

    Make sure when you use Promo that you weigh the charges when starting out and when you change jugs of powder as different lots weigh differently. Also you can use Red Dot data by weight but the powder bushing will be significantly different so weigh to be safe.

    If you sub to the Noble Sport primer there is no going back to Winchesters as the primer pocket gets stretched out and a Winchester or domestic primer may fall out.

    As you can see Promo is used a lot and 16.5 to 19.5 is used I split the difference at 17. It's a fine load with respectable speed and light felt recoil. Jim

    I use 19.6 with 24 gram... I think I'd back it wown to 19 grains of Promo or a little less for 1 oz.. The 18 grain/18.5 grain should be about perfect..

    16 grains of Promo is the same as 16 grains of Red Dot. Or what ever amount you're looking for. It just may take a different bushing from each powder to get that 16 grains, because of the different density.

    I load my 1 1/8 loads with 18 gr of promo AA/STS hulls. My 1 oz loads I simply change the shot charge and wad and use the same 18 grs of powder.

    As Brian said, pay attention to the weight; I moved from a #31 bushing to a #28 to maintain 17.5 to 18 grains when I changed Promo batches. Your scale is your friend...

    To Mr. Sprtnclays, I bet it's hotter than 1300fps. Mr. Sims, ya, I'm watching myself. I've seen data going even higher. Hard for me to go there though. JKP

    I have a 2005 Loading chart for Promo and it shows Winchester 1 ounce AA shell loading data and it takes 18 grains of Promo for 1200 FPS. It is a PDF file and I can email it if you want a copy.

    Send me an email and I'll fire it off to you.

    Mr. Moore, thanks for the test. Did you shoot just one? Or did you shoot a few for average? Jim Price
