    Was wondering if anyone has a 11/16 oz 20 Ga recipe that you would share with me. I am trying to get the lightest load possible for my son. Thanks in advance.

    I have loaded this for several years with no change of components. An unaltered 3/4 oz skeet bar will throw a little light. You will need to pour on the coals for autoloader reliability. 15.5 gr Unique in a Remmy hull, with most any primer and wad works great in a fixed breech gun on skeet or short yardage trap with appropriate shot.

    The higher shot gets, the better these light loads shoot! LOL

    Here's a load that I worked up for my grandson...

    STS or AA hulls, winchester AA wad, AA209 primer, 15.6 gr PB (#23 MEC bushing in a 9000H), 3/4oz 8.5 mag shot.

    This has very low recoil but works the action of his Remington 1100 20 ga. The PB load is bulky enough not to require filler cardboard wads.

    When loading 3/4 oz. (11/16 or so) I have found the Win. WAA20 (or Claybuster clone of the Winchester 20 ga. wad) helpful in providing a good crimp. Look at the loads for 3/4 oz. in the Hodgdon's reloading booklet. They work great. Best Regards, Ed
