    I am looking for loading data for 800X
    Is anyone loading Federal Pappers 1 1/8 load with it?
    If so let me know the good and bad.

    I used to shoot it in the 12ga with 1-1/4oz loads. But I mainly use it now in my 20ga with 1oz loads. I always thought it was dirty. Not bad with the 1-1/4oz loads though. Made a nice pheasant loads with nickel 5's in GM hulls.

    800X did not drop consistent weights for me. I ended up having to weigh each powder charge. So I won't be using anymore of it.

    I doubt you like it but whats going to really be relevant for you, your squadmates will definetly not like you for using it.

    At trap load velocity's with 1.125 oz shot, it has a loud, sharp crack. I imagine loading in a paper case, this maybe enhanced by lower pressures.
