    Yes, there is alot of data on Hodgdon.com website for these hulls with lots of different powders and primer/wad combo's as well. But then again, why would you want to use a metal base hull to start with. I only load brass/ and stick with AA's or STS's. Break-em all. Jeff

    Yeah, Jeff, but that's you ...

    LTS ... For Alliant powders, use FGM-Plastic or Fiocchi data, and the same thing for Hodgdon, but H. lists Cheddite hulls also.

    FedC0 clones will vary in length, so if you are wanting to develop a 'permanent' load, get a bag, each, and look for your best, easiest crimp.

    CB 6110 is a champeen wad for 7/8, as is that shape-shifter DR XXL-orange.

    The BPI VP-05 is an excellent choice, too, and I prefer it over the F-C0 for 7/8oz.

    The VP-05, DR FC0-blue, and the DR XXL-orange will give you more flexibility using both dense and fluffy powders. I've used the VP-05 for varying speeds with PB, 7625, Bullseye, Promo, 700-X, TiteGroup and Green Dot ... it fits good with all.

    Stay away from the RemChester clone wads - use wads designed for straight-wall cases.
