    I use a 1 oz load for both shots of doubles. I use a 1200 fps load (factory mostly) and find it to be very effective.

    I am using a 7/8 oz load on first shot and there is a noticeable difference between it and a 1 oz.

    AA hull, 17.6gr American Select, Win 209, Waa12L 1,200 FPS of #8.5 and it crushes the first target.

    Here's my favorite...



    AA hull

    Win209 primer

    17.5 grains of Promo or Red Dot

    WAA12SL wad or clone.

    Note: 17 grain loads run at 1,145 fps velocity. 18 grains will get you to 1,200 fps.

    Alliant has similar loads for STS/Nitro/Gun Club hulls using a Rem209P primer. Powder charges are slightly different. Check Alliant's on line reloaders guide for exact details.

    One of the better doubles shooters I know went to 7/8 oz of 8 1/2's for both shots on doubles after a shoulder injury repair and didn't lose a bit of score and I think is still using that load.
    Seen a few 100's from hm with that load too.

    Winchester AA Lite powder has very little recoil in a 1 oz load. Bob
