    Claybuster has just come out with a new CB0175-12 wad, the first I know of specifically made for ¾ ounce 12 gauge loads.


    Three-quarter ounce 12 gauge loads are an in thing these days. They are nearly recoilless and they help you stretch an expensive bag of shot as far as it will go. Three-quarters, of course, is the standard 28 gauge load but in a 12 they will solidly break any target on a skeet field and they make great training loads, too. Shoot them in an 8-1/2-pound target gun and you can hardly feel it go off – while you save money.

    I have loaded and shot around 1000 of these new 3/4oz wads. They work great on the skeet field and they cycle in my 1100. I use 15 grains of Extra Lite, the powder burns clean and there is almost no recoil.

    Now what am I going to do with the 6k 7/8oz wads I have?

    OHHHH I can hear them now "3/4 ounce loads STINK!"

    I will look forward into trying these new wads as I do like 7/8's. Wonder how much 700X and or Red Dot it will take to push these to 1100FPS???

    Run several 25's from the 16 yard line with them.

    Amazing what this CB0175 wad will do at short to medium sporting, 16 yds., and skeet. It's been out in the market for several months and you hear nothing but great results from it.

    .

    With a 12 gauge O/U weighing under 6 pounds and these 3/4 ounce loads...

    Is there any reason for a 20 or 28 gauge shotgun ?

    Depending on the gun, 20's and 28's can be on a smaller frame. Good for women, kids, and guys with smaller hands/frames.

    ...hmmmm, I always wondered if there was any reason for anything "but" a 28 gauge with .410 tubes, since the 3/4 0z. loads break targets on the skeet field so well. Now the're making wads to shot 3/4 oz loads in a 12 gauge...go figure ???...I bet the pattern is better with the 28 gauge...!

    How much powder do 12 gauges use for 3/4 oz. loads compared to a 3/4 oz. 28 gauge load I wonder? Anyone know...?

    I run a 100 straight from the 27 yd. line with them. Vaporizes targets when I do my part. Don't waste your money on 7/8 oz. I am now working up a 1/2 oz. 12 ga load. Just think of the savings on shot. 800 shells per bag,WOW. Shells now cost me $2.00 per box. :)

    The reason to own a 28 gauge is you can power your 3/4 ounce load with IMR SR7625. SR7625 is a very soft shooting powder.

    One-Half ounce is all you need for Skeet,

    I bet the pattern from the 12 is better... and I run 15 grains of e3, for what it's worth to you. maybe I'll pattern and post some pictures. -Aaron Schneider

    Heck, I've known for years that 3/4 oz. works great for breaking targets. It's my favorite load to shoot by far!!! I do use a 28 gauge to do it in though. Oh Yeh, I use 13 grains of Universal Clays in the old CF Win. hulls. I'd like to hear the results if someone wants to try a side-by-side test on the 28/verses the 12 w/3/4 oz. and post the pix's. break em all Jeff

    I wonder if you would need mechanical triggers in a O/U to reset the trigger for second shot with 3/4 oz loads? When u buy tube sets from Briley they change the triggers to mechanical.

    3/4 oz loads will reset the triggers without mods..the .410 is adifferent story on some guns.

    I'd like to see that pattern comparison with pics too.

    Since the shot string on the 28 gauge is supposed to be the best there is...I'd be surprised if the pattern wasn't also superior.

    In fact I have patterned a 28 gauge and it is awsome (just havent compared it side by side with a comparable 12 gauge load like we are discussing).

    Best regards..Stan

    Do these wads work in a straight wall hull (i.e. Federal Top Gun) or tapered wall hull (i.e. STS). How much red dot for a 1250 FPS load?

    I shoot the 16ga on trap with 3/4 oz all the time. No problem even back to the fence. Bore is more disired to handle the 3/4oz. Just sayin. Wild Bill
