    I use STS hulls with Rem. 209P primer, 19 grain of Hodgdon Clays, TGT12 wad, and 1 oz. of 7 1/2 or 8 lead. Makes a nice load at about 1250 fps. I sometimes load Windjammer wads and then you have to use more powder, 20 grains, to get the same speed. I use the Clays powder because is leaves my barrel cleaner then most other powders.. I'd rather spend my time shooting, not cleaning.

    Joe, That best advice I can give a new shooter is that its the lead that breaks targets so use the best shot you can find in your area. Now with a Remington hull I would use a fig. 8 clone or a Win. AA clone wad (for one oz loads). You can get Claybuster, downrange, or Duster wads all three will work very well for you. Now with powder you can use cheap Alliants Promo or cleaner powders like Alliant's Red Dot, Green Dot, Claydot. And Hodgdon's Clays. I like Hodgdon's Clays. Its great powder but not made in the USA is only problem. Primers are a toss up as what to use. If you shoot in cold climates during the winter I say use one of the big three, Rem, Win. or (Federal most used). If weather is not a problem alot of shooters like to use Cheddite's which are cheap but may be pierced by some firing pins on some guns. If you try reloading these start with a couple of hundred to see if you get any piercings before you buy alot. You can burn the end of your firing pin if it does and you don't want to have to replace them. Or the other cheap primer is Nobel Sport. Once you use the Nobel Sport primers you will have to use nothing but that primer in those hulls until you throw them away as they are slightly larger in diameter and will enlarge the primer pocket in the hull so that the big three US primers will fall out. Most of all the different possible loads are so that you can use whatever that is handy and close and cheap for you to buy locally. Keep your speeds as close to ll50 fps for singles and slightly higher for handicap if you like. This is not really needed until you get off the 21 yard line. After time goes by you may want to try different powders, wad, primers or what have you to try to get a better score. You will then find out after many, many, many different combo's that the only that works is by placing the barrel in the proper place when you pull the trigger. Good Luck and use whatever you can find locally. Break-em all. Jeff

    Thanks Quack Shot!!! He's right keep loads under 10,000 psi. No reason to go higher. The TGT 12 is a fig. 8 wad and WAA12SL is the Win. AA wad. Both are for one oz. Alliantpowder.com is the powder website for Alliant. and Hodgdon.com is the website for Hogdon powders. Alot of reloaders like to use the same brand primer in the same brand hull, but its not a big deal and they will all still go off. Find what components you can in your area and get the load and speed you want by looking up your own loads. Be Safe and use a scale to verify your powder drops and go for it. Break-em all. JEff

    Joe - I have been using Remington hulls (STS, etc..), 1 oz shot, 17gr. Promo, Remington TGT12S WAD and Rem 209P primer. This will get you around (1145 fps). Makes for a low recoil nice 16 yard load. This recipe is listed under the Alliant's site. Good Luck.

    Start with a Remington Hull, try some TGT12 wads or clones, select a powder to fit the load, primer, velocity and charge weight from published data and have at it. Try to keep your pressures under 10,000 PSI Weigh your powder drops and don't substitute components unless you have data to support it.

    When in doubt, call the powder manufacturer and get their take on it.

    Torqueman I use 8 Shot Remington Target-12 wad Remington Hull Remington 209P Primer Hogdon Titegroup Powder 16.6 - 16.8 Grains around 1200 -1210 FPS They pattern very well out of my barrel and I have broken them hard Lowery targets with them so that's good enough for me. They don't hardly have any noticable recoil to worry about. PAT.

    I use the same load as Old Lady Shooter only the book says 18.8 gr. of clays is 1235 fps at 9,200 psi.

    Great load and with low recoil and smashes the target.

    For light load or "cheap practice". I load the same as APrice for 1 oz. The DR XL-1 works well too. Either AA or STS, GC, Peters hulls.

    All over Win 209's.
