    3/4 oz. reloads in Win. & STS cases

    I remember some shooters on this site looking for some 3/4 oz. loading formula's so here are a few that I have found. All these loads use Win. AA primers and Fed. 12SO wads, and Clays powder, but here are the other differences.
    Case 12ga. Win. AA,16.6 gr. Clays,3/4 oz. lead,1,200 fps @6,200 psi.
    Case 12ga. Win. AA,17.8 gr. Clays,3/4 oz. lead,1,250 fps @6,800 psi.
    These Win. loads will not cycle an Automatic
    Case 12ga. Rem STS, 16.4 gr. Clays, 3/4 oz. lead, 1,200 fps @ 6,400 psi.
    Case 12ga. Rem STS, 17.3 gr. Clays, 3/4 oz. lead, 1,250 fps @ 7,000 psi.
    Case 12ga. Rem STS, 18.1 Gr. Clays, 3/4 oz. lead, 1,300 fps @ 7,600 psi.
    The last two Rem. loads should cycle and Automatic

    I hope these loads can help out some of you shooters out there looking for a good load in 3/4 oz. These loads are published loads backed up by Ron Reiber the Product manager at Hodgdon. Break-em all. Jeff

    I'm not trying to step on your informative post here, only offering some encouragement for these fine light loads.

    I shoot 3 different 1100CT's and one 1100 Comp. I believe that the Comp will just about cycle anything. All of my 1100's will cycle every load that you have listed. The trick is a bit of Breakfree or Slip 2000 on the gas ring and O-ring. I can even get these loads to work w/ a T&S plastic shell catcher in the CT's.

    Shooting the 3/4 loads has brought back some of the enjoyment of shooting Singles, again. I hope that everyone tries them.

    IME,
    Kip

    I would have thought that someone on here would have needed at least one of these loads. TTT Break-em all. Jeff

    Thanks for load info....looking for Fed 12S0s; currently using Downrange XXL 7/8 oz. wads for 3/4 oz. which seem to work OK..they will cycle an 1100 and break 16 yd. targets just fine. Mainly use #9 shot, looking for 8 1/2s. Best Regards, Ed

    Tom Cerretto (sp?) who writes the reloading column in the Skeet Shooting Review has for the past two issues concentratd on 3/4 ounce and 7/8 ounce 12 gauge loads for Winchester and STS cases, mainly using Fed 12SO wads. If you don't mind being seen talking to a skeeter, they might still have the issues. Tom lists loads for Clays, Red Dot and E3 powders. He also has in the current issue a very interesting recoil table showing recoil by gun weight using 3/4 ounce loads versus heavier loads.

    I've used the DR-XXL7/8 wads in STS cases with 17 grains of Clays powder and Win 209 primers for 3/4 oz loads. Great weenie load...no recoil.

    I've recently tried; STS RP cases, WW 209, 17.5 gr RED DOT, WAA12L or it's clone and 3/4oz hard 8.5's . Crono'd at 1290 fps. Breaks birds from the 16 as well as my 7/8 oz loads. In an unsingle the recoil is negligible.

    An especially fine skeet load with 9's for your 12 if you get lazy and don't want to install the 20 or 28 ga tubes.
