    I dont myself because i think it is too slow, but i know a man that does and consistently runs 25's from 16 with them

    At that speed which is sub sonic you get very good patterns. Very little shot deformation or pattern disruption do to breaking the sound barrier. HMB

    I do for 16's and even lower for the first shot in dbls, about 950 fps. Handicap and second shot in doubles are right at 1200.

    I loaded some slow loads with winchester aa light powder, no one stocks it locally. My wife can no longer tell the difference with the auto and normal 1200 fps factory loads. I load clays 1oz at 1135 and love this load

    Yep,
    Both 1 oz and 1 1/8 oz loadings.

    Very pleasant to shoot.

    Hi

    Started out loading 1050 fps and loaded
    the recipe below for 15 years before moving
    to 7/8 oz loads at 1225fps:

    Federal GM hull
    Federal 209 primer
    15grs Red Dot
    1 1/8 oz Federal Wad
    1 1/8 oz Hard 8s.

    Regards

    When using 1oz for first shot in doubles and starting my daughter off in trap and skeet my reloads are somewhere around 1090. I tried shooting 7/8oz at that speed and there is very little recoil but with the powder I was trying there were a lot of weak sounding reports. Now I hold 7/8s to 1180 or better and all is good.
    At 16 yard or first shot of doubles 1090 works great even with 1oz.

    Go to Hodgdon's website and look at their loads with Winchester AA Lite powder with Winchester hulls.

    They sound like bloopers, but they crush 16 yard targets.

    Works well for me. I load 1 1/8 oz., 16.2 gr. Red Dot, Win. primer, wad (white) & old style AA case. I use these for 16 yd. line only. Not much recoil and very dense patters shot out of my fixed improved modified chocked BT-99. Very light recoil. Darrell

    flincher100- Above, you stated " If you consult ballistics tables, you will see there is virtually no reason to push shot at more than 1100fps". Do you have some data that will support this? I can't find any in the ballistic tables I have available. I did find that at 1200 ft/sec muzzle velocity, the shot slows to about 1000 ft/sec and falls 3 inches due to gravity at 40 yards. If the shot starts at 1100 ft/sec it would be slower at 40 yards and fall more.

    I once loaded 15 grains of 700x in a AA hull 1 1/8 load, and broke targets from the 27, It seemed to work fine, just a little slow.

    Remington's "low recoil" loads are 1 1/8 oz. at 1100 fps.

    Winchester's Feather Lite's are 26 grams (about 15/16 oz.) at a published velocity of 960 fps.

    Both loads break short targets very well.

    The one time I shot an ATA singles event with 1 1/8 oz at 1090 fps they pounded the tagets, and I think I shot a 98 or 99. Was pleased with them and will probably shoot some more of them this summer.

    Flincher100, read your rule book. 1290 fps is the max for 1 1/8 oz loads, 1325 fps is the max for 1 oz loads, and 1350 is the max to 7/8 oz loads. "3 Dram Handicap" loads were legally loaded to 1250 fps (or hotter) long before Remington started printing 1235 fps on Nitro 27 boxes and Winchester started printing 1250 fps on Super Handicap boxes. Shells aren't the reason 27 yard line shooters are stomping you.
