    STS hull, Red Dot 18 grains, Claybuster 8118 wad, Fed 209 primer, 1 1/8oz Roger Brenner shot 7.5. It is an old school load that still works.

    STS--16gr 700X--TGT or clone I recently tried re-claim shot so have gone up to about 15\16s (1oz bushing) only because my 7\8 bushing only drops about 13\16s--Rem. CCI, Fed. primer. RC shot seems OK so will probably stay with it for practice anyway. Ross Puls

    W209, 15grs. 700X, TGT12 type wad, 1oz. #8 magnum shot. I originally tried this as a very light 1st shot in doubles. After I decided to try it for singles, I shot 4 99's in a row. It has plenty of power for 16's.

    18.2 Solo 1000, Claybuster Lightning wad, 1 oz 8 1/2's and Federal or Cheddite primers. Quick load chrono's around 1175 fps and generates little to moderate felt recoil. Devestating on 16 yd targets but also works back to the 23 yd line in a pinch.
