    Dowmrange Mfg. XXL-Pink can be loaded in tapered cases, (AA & STS) with 3/4 oz of shot using any recipe calling for a WAA12L (Grey AA) and 7/8 oz. They are available at a dealer near you, or e-mail ZZZgcbluerck@cox.netZZZ without the ZZZ's

    The WAA12L Gray wad or its CB equivalent is nmade for 7/8 oz but it works fine with 3/4 oz. No one make a 3/4 specific wad.

    21 grains International Clays WW209 primer, AAL wad,Rem.Gun Club hull
    1389 fps, 7234 psi.

    Same load as above with Downrange XXL wad: 1348 fps.
    In the above loads, the AAL wad data was more consistent.

    18.5 grains Titewad, Fiocchi 616 primer, AAL wad, Gun Club Hull
    1332 fps. 7167 psi.

    Same with XXL: 1322fps. 6539 psi.
    AAL data again more consistent.

    Crimps were 60 thou. International Clays is supposed to be too slow a powder to work, but it did just fine in the middle of a Michigan winter. Both the AAL loads worked fine in cold weather. Ron Reiber, Hodgdon Powder's guru, said he would prefer Clays for a powder for the sake of better crimps. I didn't have any Clays and haven't got any bones to pick with the Titewad load, either from a crimp or performance viewpoint. The International Clays load worked fine, but gets a little "boomy".

    One more:
    17.7 grains Titewad, WW209, AAL, Gun Club
    1295 fps. 6094 psi.
    This one could use a bulkier powder, with crimps having a tendency to dish.

    If your looking for normal velocities 16 grs nitro 100 win aa 12L wad or claybuster copy in sts hull or 16.5 grs in the AA's both around 1225fps. They are a little dirty due to low pressures and I wouldn't shoot them in below freezing weather. You could also look into using alliants bullseye powder some older reloading manuals list some 7/8's loads with this powder. It's very fast burning and works good for lower velocity light charge weight loads in the 12 ga. Looking at the 2000 alliant reloading manuel pg 21 they list win 209 primer AA hull waa12f1 wad and 1 20ga card wad 16.5 of bullseye for 7/8's @1200fps. I have load this with the waa12L no card wad and 3/4 of 8's and it's about 1235 fps and also loaded it with the claybuster lightning wad with good results. Good new shooter load or skeet load

    Ballistic Specialties makes a 3/4oz. wad and about any other kind you want. They are high but they are excellent in performance and you can't beat the customer service.
