    Best all time (for targets) load: Remington All-American Hull, Green Dot powder, T-Wad (White). Unfortunately, the hull and the wad haven't been available for a LONG time.

    My best depends on conditions. Sometimes the mayflys are hatching. Hoppers work around farm country. I switch up if I don't get many bites. Sometimes I actually get good feedback to a legit question. Ya never know. Jake

    Robert... The best handicap reload I have ever used consisted of a Federal paper hull, Federal 209A primer, 18.5gr 700X, Federal 12C1 wad, pushing 492gr. 71/2 magnum shot. This load worked great no matter what gun I shot it through. Now that the old style Federal primers and the 12C1 wads are no longer available, I have found another "favorite" load. It consists of a Remington STS hull, Fiocchi primer, 18.5gr Promo powder, ORIGINAL Windjammer wad, pushing 492gr. 71/2 magnum shot. Great load as well.... Just my experience...

    Boneman, When I was in the Navy the bars in South Philly still welcomed sailors and were good for a "bartender, get a round for the sailors"

    17.5 international, green duster, fed primer, STS shells and 1 oz #8's

    Hoosier Daddy (and others), please elaborate. Many of the reloading experts on TS.com recommend slower burning powders than Red Dot for the 3 dram eq. load you describe. Myself, I'm still searching. Why is this load so popular? Would it be safe to call it a "classic"?

    OK, since you asked:

    STS hull, Fed 209 primer, 17.6 gr. of Clays, WJII wad and 28 gm. of 7.5's. The perfect load, developed for FITASC

    I've yet to come up with a load that is even close to as good as my bar none favorite shell..the Federal 1oz game load. Most universal, economical and all my best scores have come with them. The only reload that has gotten me close is Rem hull, Win209 primer, TGT12S wad, 19.8 grains of Red Dot and 1.04 oz of 7.5 magnum shot. Its good, but still ain't as good as the Fed factory loads.

    One of my all time favorites is the Remmy hull, Fed 209A primer, 18 gr Solo 1000, Pink Claybuster, and one ounce of 7 1/2. Works great for 16's, caps, and second shot of Dubs.

    Another is Fed GM hull, Fed 209A primer, 21.5 gr Solo 1000, Claybuster 12SO clone, and 24 grams of 7 1/2 for Bunker, 16's, or the first shot of ATA Dubs.

    Answer to question: for many years in the heyday of trapshooting the top load for new was Fed. Papers 3 dram 71/2's and the top reload was 18 gr of Red Dot in AA with AA wad. I can just remember not sweating the load so much as breaking the bird and both of them did it with authority. Lot's more to chose from now, all good.

    The mother of all 'caps reloads:

    Remington hull

    Remington STS/209 primer

    Remington TGT-12 wad

    18.0 gr. of Hodgdon's Titegroup powder.

    1 1/8 oz shot

    1235 fps all day long in the heat of summer or the cold of winter! Remington loads them from the factory this way, and so do I!

    Ditto on the Titegroup. Before that it was Fed papers with C1 and Red Dot.

    Titegroup is one of the best powders out for standard and handicap loads, but it seems to be a well kept secret. The ONLY thing that might hurt it is that the powder takes up very little room in the hull.

    A Remmy hull with the Fed 209A and 20.5 gr Titegroup with WAA12L and 24 grams 7 1/2 is a fabulous Bunker load.

    I burned a keg of it with GREAT results, but went back to my BULKY powders, Solo 1000 and Rex 1. The hulls I have unlimited access to are straight walled Riefenhausers. ;^)

    Paper Federal hull, 32gr of Win 540, 12c1 wafd and 1 1/4oz of nickle 6's. I've won LOTS of those parking lot dollars with that little secret.

    Hey Shooting Coach,

    Did you ever chrono that 24 gram load? I was trying to work up a 7/8 oz load using Tightgroup and never had much success. Hodgdon wasn't much help either when I asked them for reloading info. Thanks!
