    You can use a Pink Clabuster or Green Duster in front of 20 gr for a Bunker load at 1350. You can slow it down to 18 gr for a load that will give the recoil of a 20 ga shell in your gun.

    Red Dot is about the most useful powder made. It is one of the few that can be used for anything from 3/4 oz "skeetie muffin" loads to 1 1/8 ounce handicap loads, with the right components.

    16.5 grs #8 shot, soft and they crush targets. I use them for 16s and 1st shot of doubles. Jake

    With the gray Winchester 12L wad or it's CB copy, the same as j2jake's load but with 700X - with Clays I'd move up to 17 grains....Bob Dodd

    17.5grns w/ claybuster CB1100-12(WAA12SL) cycled Rem 1100 w/ Kolar Comp reliably. Worked great @ Skeet ranges. Think jake's 16.5gr load would be questionable in an auto. Also loaded 17.5grns w/ claybuster CB2100-12(12SO)w/ 3/4oz shot. Broke targets cleanly, however ejection was a little sluggish.

    Using the components you listed with 16gr of Red Dot and a 12S0 wad makes a terrific 7/8oz load @ 1150fps.

    Nice.

    I'm getting very good results with the downrange XXL pink wad, 15.9 g 700X, F209A primer,7/8 Oz #8 Redman in STS/Gun Club hulls. 17g of Red Dot should do about the same as the 700X. You will love the absence of recoil. BTW this load cycles in all my gas op. autoloaders without problems.

    It's almost all that I shoot.

    GREEN DUSTER wad and 16.5 to 17 red dot or 700x in a CF AA hull

    No fillers or sunk crimps

    CB1100 works but I havent spent much time with them yet

    I have have inconsistet results with the CB grey wad and I suspect the wad can tip or cock in firing as it is flexible. The 12S0 is wonderful as it is stiff but may not fit the AA hull right. I use it in STS hulls.

    *** just checked, it does fir the AA ok.

    There is a Fiocchi wad or similar Italian import with a honey comb like structure as well.
    Do you know the name?

    Goose - Use the alliant web site - DO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS when it is about reloading.

    Gary Waalkes, maybe goose2 will no longer be a stranger, and I do have the 2008pdf Allaint guide file saved on my hard drive for a reference, and once again click the link above for the guide, or if you do not have DSL the new data is listed on the web site, click reloading data. 10Tenner

    Everything I do is referenced to loading manuals.

    You get in trouble by making changes with full payloads at the top end of fast powders like red dot or 700 x

    Re: "honeycomb" wad. Sounds like the Gualandi (wwww.gualandi.it) "Spark" wad to me. Sold by both Ballistic Products and Precision Reloading. Lyman 5th edition gives recipes using this wad for Remington hulls: page 156. Of course, Ballistic Products has many additional suggestions.

    You may be interested in knowing that Helarco (www.helarcous.com) will be making wads of this ilk starting this winter in the US to eliminate the Euro "surcharge".

    The CB 1100-12 works out very well in the AA HS case with HS700X. See www.shootingbunker.com/OpenItUp.html. Click on "Go to Round 2" for test results.

    BunkerGuy, I think it is the Rex24 wad, the best 7/8 straight wall wad I have used. Thanks for the information on the wads being made in the US. 10Tenner
