    Excellent powder, very consistant. It is also cleaner burning than most if that means anything to you. I'm sure you will have good results. BTW I also use it for 1 oz loads. Shoot well. Josh

    I have been shooting e3 since it first came out, I will not be changing my recipe as long as it's available. I love how well it shoots, and also how clean it is at the end of a long days shooting. Garrett

    I agree with the others. Been using 16.5 to 17gr for 1oz but check the tables first to be safe. Seems to have less recoil than other powders. don q

    It's a great powder and works quite well for 1oz.in a 12ga. I've had some pretty decent results in colder weather with e3.

    It is both an excellent and economical powder. Some still don't recognize that a powder that costs 5% more for an 8 pound jug and gives 10% more reloaded shells is economical, but it really is.

    Great powder and VERY consistent, even in colder weather. Just don't use the Fiocchi primer much under 50 degrees.
