    The best 1oz load on the planet is:

    RemChester Hull

    RemChester Clone 1oz Wad

    Any medium strength primer

    16-17 grains of any of about 13 'one-ounce' powders: Red Dot & 700-X are default


    for 1-1/8oz?

    Any Eurotrash Hull

    Claybuster 6118 wad,

    Any medium strength primer

    19-21gn of Green Dot, U or U, PB, International, S1250


    Adjust your powders until you like your pattern, then STOP.

    <i>mi dos pesos</i>, of course

    They are all about the same when looking at a particular speed. A few pellets at 40 yards, counted, is all you can expect. And then it might be different next time.

    Well now, you've got about 500,000 plus shotgun shooters and 500,000+ different ideas for loads. Take your pick, brother. But then you could look it up in one of the loaders manuals, yourself.

    Top Gun Hull-18.5 Promo-Rio Primer-WindJammer wad 1 1/8th oz 8s or 7 1/2s

    A cheap shell to load and 1200fps soft shooting, I load this shell for all ATA shoots Hdcp-or 16s. Your cost to load a box of this load is $3.13 or $31.30 flat.

    That is reasonable and a very effective shell, it will stand up to the best of them.

    The hulls are free, just pick them up, they are everywhere, I got over 5,000 at Cardinal Center last week. And 2500+ at the CURE for Cancer Shoot.

    Load and pitch or load them twice.

    I use AA hull with Tgt 12 claybuster wad and CCI 209 with 21.2 g of Int'l clays behind 8's. Works great at 16. I just switch to 1 1/8 oz of 7 1/2's WWAA-12 and 16.5 g of 700X for handicap or 8's for 16.
