    I use them with 15.5 grains of International Clays, a Claybuster 7/8 ounce wad, and about 0.85 ounce of #8 shot in mostly Remington Gun Club hulls. They hit everything I'm aimed at from 16 yards. I'm not sure what the FPS is on the load, but it shouldn't be too much different from a factory load.

    i have used 10k+ Cheddites with very problems. they are interchangeable with Win 209 load data. they will slightly stretch the primer pockets so once you use them you'll have to keep using them in your hulls.

    You will find that Cheddites are the best bang for your buck. The Cheddites are a little bit bigger in diameter and longer than Remingtons. So if you reload the sts hulls make sure your primer pressure is turned up a little bit.

    I have reloaded over 20K primer with NO misfires!

    When I spoke with Ben at Alliant he said to use the R209P as a substitute. But in all reality there is a marginal difference between any two primers. Look at the reloading data with same components and different primers you will find the powder variances are minimal.
