    I load 1 oz for singles, doubles and 5 stand and 1 1/8 for handicap. I use a different powder charge for the singles and doubles than I do for 5 stand and handicap. I've looked into other powders but I don't reload a lot and like to keep it somewhat simple.

    All Green Dot for me. AA or Remington Hull, Win 209 primer, AA or figure 8 wad and 20.3 of green. 1200 fps all day long and smoking targets. Softest shooting powder around IMHO.

    If I had to choose one powder it would be Green Dot. Been using it for over 35 years. BT100dc

    I like GREEN DOT as it has a lot of loading flexibility. Tell me why I still end up with a "dirty" barrel?? I try to follow the Alliant load data as close as possible!! Just can't get what I think should be a better burn...if you will. I also kept the powder grains constant and tried a hotter primer. ..federal 209A. Am I missing something??

    If I had to live with only one powder for everything, it would be either Green Dot or 700 X.

    I use several Alliant powders but my most frequently used load is 19.5 of Green dot in a Federal Gold Medal Plastic ribbed hull, Nobel Sport or Federal 209A Primer (winter). Clay Buster 12S3 clone wad and 1 1/8 oz. of magnum 7 1/2's.

    I have been using Green Dot for all trap loads, 1 oz. and 1 1/8 oz. for over 30 years. I also use it for all of my 16 gauge loads.

    I used to buy Red Dot for 16 yard and 1 oz loads but now I use Green Dot for everything and it works great. AA hull, Fiocchi Primers and Winchester wads.

    All my 1-1/8oz loads use Green Dot.
    All my 12 g 1oz and 7/8oz loads use Clays or Claydot.
    Doesn't matter what game or shot number.

    All I use is Green Dot. My favorite is:

    19.3 grains Green Dot<br>
    Winchester 209 primer<br>
    Remington STS/Nitro hull<br>
    DRRF8 wad<br>
    1 1/8 oz of shot<br>

    Heck I use Green Dot in my .44 Mag and .40 S&W loads as well.

    Green Dot for everything:

    3/4 ounce 20ga
    7/8, 1 ounce 16ga
    1 ounce @ 1200 all the way to 1 1/8 ounce @ 1250 in the 12 ga
    Second choice for plinking loads in 38/357, 45 ACP, 44 Mag (44Spl)

    The only place it doesn't suit me is for 7/8 in the 12ga....went from Red Dot to E3, now ExtraLite.

    You 16 ga. fans can find quite a few loads for Green Dot in the Lyman shotshell reloading manual #5.

    Greendot for all 1 1/8 oz. loads no matter what the shot size is, usually try and keep loads in the 1180 range.
    Claydot for all 1 oz loads, 8 1/2 or 8's, try and keep them under 1200 also.
    Two different loaders, two different powders, easy to keep track of.
