    Looking for 1 oz. load for the above using Win 209 primer. Around 1200fps preferred. Nothing in their reloaders manual.

    Check their online guide. Looks like 19grs of American Select should get you there.

    You don't say what hull you are using. Assuming you mean American Select, Lyman's manual lists STS or Gun Club hull, W209 primer, 18.5gr Am Sel, TGT-12 wad and 1oz- 1180fps @ 8500psi.

    Are you talking about American Select?? I use the following all the Time:

    Win AA's
    Win or Cheddite Primer
    19 grains of American Select
    Clay Buster or Jammer Wads

    I also use Fed. 209s and use 18.5 American Select.

    The Alliant website guide lists a variety of 1 oz loads using American Select, (see link) but Alliant always lists Rem primers with Rem hulls. At the pressures you are looking at for your recipe, I would feel confident substituting a Winchester primer. You could always contact Alliant for confirmation. Mark

    I'm a long time user of American Select. My load out of a Seitz is:
    STS, Nitros, Gun Clubs.
    1 1/8 oz,
    19.5 for practice and singles - 19.7 for caps and yet fairly soft shooting out of my gun.
    Windjammers.
    Fiocchi 616 primers.
    Lawrence 7 1/2 shot.
    I've found this to be a good, solid load that really smokes the targets if I do my part.
    I also find American Select to be a very clean powder.

    Since Clays is history and down to half a jug, I bought 16lbs AS and e-mailed Alliant wanting W-209 data since you can't get R209 anyway, for Rem. hulls. Still waiting, but it's only been a week or two. should have asked for Ched 209 also....

    Hi,

    I have asked the same question and was told if you use W209, you should 'lower' the powder amount by .5.

    I'm liking A/S so far also. Found Clays and Clay Dot tough to find as of lately. I didn't hesitate to try it. It meters well and is clean burning. Using it with old style "AA's", AA wads, Cheddites and Win. 209's, and 1 1/8 oz. of shot. I may buy another 8 pounder and just stick with it. I think Clays and Clay Dot will lighten up soon.

    Fred --

    You know I'm young at heart. Besides, my young wife has caught the trapshooting bug, big time. She is shooting at least 300 rounds a week now.

    How is your reloading going ???

    When will you be back ???

    Your bud ---
