    Remington Hulls<br>
    17.1 Grains of Hodgdon Titegroup<br>
    Downrange DRRT-12 Wads (Remington TGT-12S clone)<br>
    Winchester 209 Primers<br>
    1-1/8 ounces of good brand hard shot (Remington STS or equivalent)

    One of the most important things in handicap loads is good, hard, magnum shot.

    Remington Nitro 27's (HDCP 7 1/2's) would be my favorite but I shoot a lot of Estates 3 dram 7 1/2's because of the cost differential ... If I was at a big shoot I would pay the difference and shoot the Nitro's in all Handcap events, no question about it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Gold Medal Hull. w209, 19.5 Clays, CB 1118, 7.5 WC.

    Clean and hard hitting on those bios.

    It put me on the 27.

    BTW, no issues yet on hull seperating and choke tube fouling from the wads?

    Fed GM hull

    Fed209A Primer

    25 gr Solo 1250

    Windjammer Tournament Wad

    1 1/8 oz Magnum 7 1/2

    Best long range shell I have ever shot.

    Solo 1250 has been discontinued. If you can't find Solo try same amount of Unique in this load.

    I prefer these powders over Green Dot. Lower pressure, soft shooting load.

    I use this one on longer sporting clays targets and they crush 'em when I do my part.
    Federal Hull
    FIO 616
    12S3 or equivalent
    23 grains Unique
    1 1/8 of 7 1/2's

    Patterns nicely and does not kill me to shoot a lot of them. Dirty though but who cares as long as the targets are breaking!

    Any STS hull--win.209 primer--23.7 grains of Universal Clays--Rem fig 8 wad--1 1/8 oz of 7 1/2's = 1250 fps = softer shooting, clay smashing, excellent shell for yardage. If I could only shoot as good as the shell. LOL

    Universal Clays is also a great Caps powder.

    Solo 1250, Unique, and Univ Clays beat out the faster powders.

    Running Unique to 25 gr will help it burn cleaner, along with the hotter Fed 209A or Rio primer.

    I have found the inexpensive Rio works very well. Being oversize is a non issue. Hulls don't last forever, and I will not spend $150+ for a case of primers.

    Remmy Nitro 27's in 7.5 shot will crush'em from long yardage. Reload to the same specs.
