    In researching for a replacement primer for the WW209 or Rem 209, I looked up powder manufacturer's recommendations using the Cheddite 209 primer and Clays or Clay Dot...my powders of choice. Very limited applications. A 1145 fps 1 1/8th oz. load (STS/Fig8) pushes 10400 PSI using 17.2 gr. of Clays...I like a little hotter load. I guess the Cheddite primer is not an optimal choice for Clays/Clay Dot? Anyone have experience with this combination?

    The point is simple. Clays and Clay Dot might not be the best choice for hotter loads with 1 1/8 oz of shot in tapered hulls. 1145 fps is about the limit in most shells, unless you are willing to accept higher pressures. I use a different powder for 1 1/8 oz loads over 1145 fps. The exception to this is the Federal Gold Medal and similar hulls. That is where Clays works well over a broader range of loads.
