    Going to try out some Extra Light, anyone know a 3/4oz recipe using Rem hulls with Win 209 primers? Alliants site only has a few listed which use Rem primers...

    Thanks and Happy 4th...

    Win primers and rem primers r very close. When I use Win instead of rem I back off 1/2 grain of powder. It will work fine. I use win primers and Extralite pwd.

    3/4 oz. 8 1/2 mag. @ 1300fps.
    AA or Rem. Hull
    16grs. Extra Lite
    CB0175-12 Wad
    Win. primer or Fed.

    You will like this load and really like the same components and shot chg. @ 7/8 oz. of 8's @ 1250fps.

    Above is the link for Claybuster recipes using their 3/4 oz 12 gauge wad. It has Extra Light listed. The pressures are so low, that I wouldn't worry about primer substitutions. Mark

    I loaded some 3/4 oz with 14 grains of promo, NO recoil and they will break the target. Try a few and let me know what you think. I loaded them for my 10 year old grandson.

    Not trying to sound negative,but 7/8 oz is the lightest practical load for a 12 ga. The light hits of a 3/4 oz. load will never build any confidence. 3/4 oz. is questionable even in a 20 ga. I've tried them.

    You should try them again oldtimer, they break um just as good as 7/8oz I've found from the 16 with reduced recoil and cost

    They will perform very well for 16, first shot of doubles, skeet, 5 stand, close sporting, but not long sporting shots, FITASC or Bunker. It's a good practice load and very economical with 16 grs. of Extra-Lite and CB0175-12 wad. The 3/4 oz. load with the above mentioned components will surprise you.
