    Anyone loading with 800x can you load 1 oz with 800X.

    You can load some real low pressure, low speed and soft shooting loads if that is what you are after. They will be very dirty. It certainly isn't an efficient target powder for trap or skeet.

    Powder is too slow, use 700X or Red Dot. HMB

    You can install screws with a hammer but there are better tools. The same is true IMO with using 800X for 1 oz. loads.

    If you prefer IMR powders, the correct powder for 1 oz. would be 700X. Save the 800X for 1 1/4 oz. loads.
