    Good evening Gentleman
    Just pickup a Escort youth model 20 ga for the grand daughter. She is a petite little thing that loves to shoot she is only 8 years old, the same age I started her father. What I need is a load for soft shooting load for it. I don't want to start buying 1 pound bottles of powder and different components to see which one really is the softest, so I am coming to you gentleman to get your vast knowledge. Please don't tell me to look it up in a reloading book that is not going to tell me if it is soft shooting. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Pete, Not sure if the Escort youth model is a auto or not, or if this light a load will cycle it, if it is. Rem hull, Rem primer, WAA20 wad, 3/4 oz. hard lead and 12.5 grains of Hodgdon International powder will give you 8,600 psi at 1150 fps. You can also use the PC20 wad with same powder drop and get a 200 psi lower pressure load. These loads are as light as you can go. There is data on Hodgdon.com if you want to Win. AA cases or different components, but Hodgdon only has the International powder for both cases only. Not sure about Alliant powder. Oh Yeh, 13.6 grains of powder will speed this load up to 1,200 fps. Best of Luck and Break-em all. Jeff
