    I did a bit of trading with a neighbor that quit shooting awhile back. Part of the haul was a few bags of 12C1 wads and a bird box full of once fired Federal papers.

    I'd like to load these but cannot find any reloading data for the Red Dot or Green Dot I have on hand. Only the 12S3 wads are listed. Are the numbers for the 12C1 and 12S3 equivalent?

    Anybody have an older reloading manual listing the 12C1 with Alliant powders. Currently have a supply of Cheddite primers but if picking up some Fed 209A's will make this work better that's cool. Can anyone help?

    18 to 18.5 grains of red dot should be close to 1200fps. 19.5 to 20 grains of green dor will do the same.Or sell them to me! LOL
