    I'm looking for a recipe using Downrange Fig 8 wads, Remington hulls, and Cheddite primers.

    Thanks,

    fig8 is the wrong wad for 1oz with Promo. The legs are short and even with zero wad pressure and 18 gr of promo you won't get a full case so the crimps will dish. Use the DR TGT12 or XL1 and you should get great loads. I use the DRRTGT12 and 17 of Promo and a CCI 209. This is a fairly mild load but hard on targets for handicaps I up the charge to 19 grains and change nothing else.

    Chip is correct, with Promo in STS use TGT12 1 oz wads, either Rem, Claybuster, or DR clones. I use Mec #31 bushing and usually get about 17.8 grs. for singles and both shots of doubles...perfect loads for that.
