    I dare say nothing cleaner, or better for 7/8oz.

    I have reloaded over 2000 rounds with Extra-lite. Very clean burning powder and works well on 7/8 loads.

    Anyone loading Extra-Lite on a MEC? Need a starting point for bushings for about 15.5 grains. I can't find Extra-Lite listed in the bushing charts on either MEC's or Allaint's site.

    Hodgdon Titewad will also work very well for 7/8oz loads. Very fast,very clean and economical powder for lite loads. ABH.

    I use a MEC and I use a #29 and #30. The 29= 15.5 but please use you scale.
    I paid $80 for 8# jug at a PA Trap shoot.
