    They do not show anythiing for 7/8 oz loads with 700X....if you go to their web-site, they do offer a 1 oz. load with 700X. Probably good idea to also check with you Wad manufacturer!

    Here's what I have for 12 gauge 2 3/4 24 GRAM loads.. Note the asterisk next to powder grains calls for a 20 gauge 0.135 inch card in bottom of shot cup.

    You could use the info for 24 gram loads.

    24 grams =370.4 grains

    7/8 oz = 382.8 grains

    A difference of 12.4 grains. What's that, maybe 8 to 10 pellets ?

    Looks like anything between 15 and 21 grains will work depending on your choice of components and velocity desired.

    700X is not very bulky so you may need to use a tall wad like the AA12L or it's clone to get the components high enough to give a good crimp.

    I load 7/8 with 700X @ 17gr with DR XXL pink in STS and works great, I've never had a problem.

    Hi

    I used this wad in Federal Top Gun hull 7/8 oz and it filled the hull better than the 12SO - worked well.

    DRXXL ORANGE
    This wad loads in the numerous straight-walled hulls. Use it for the Federal, Gold Medal, Fiocchi, Cheddite, Thrilling, Nobel Sport, Challenger, etc.

    Specifications
    Fits: STRAIGHT WALL HULL
    Replaces OEM: FED. 12S0, CB2100-12

    Regards

    W&W

    I load 7/8 in Remington and AA hulls with claybuster AA clone wads and 16.3 grains of 700 X. Works well for me.

    Look into some of the Ballistic Products wads. They are the best for straight wall cases. They have a wide diameter to fit the case well & are very tall for the crimp. PM me your phone # & time to call & I will help you with this. I have loaded many 1000's of their wads. Tom
