    When I bought my 1st loader I was fortunate to get a good selection of different powders, Titewad being one of them. 1 1/8 oz. shot Titewad 15gn CCI 209 Rem. Fig. 8 10,600 PSI 1090. For me after learning a bit about loading. Titewad pushes the psi limit very quickly. I have not seen it for sale anywhere around locally. I used up 1lb. I liked it, seemed to load fine and I shot well with what I loaded. I also got some clays, universal, international, green dot, red dot.

    I use it and like it. As far as I'm concerned all trap load type powders do the same thing, so why not buy what's cheapest? I just used a book Titewad load to replicate a factory 1 oz 1290 FPS load I like very much, and it is working perfectly with even less recoil than it's factory counterpart.

    I have used it in 1oz 1180-1200fps loads and it works fine but it isn't as clean as Clays and I notice more recoil w/ it than Clays or Solo 1000.

    Perfect for one ounce or 7/8 loads, nice cost saving powder. I notice no difference from Red Dot or Promo, except Promo is dirtier.

    Works great. Very dense, so you might have to use a 7/8 ounce wad for a 1 ounce load.

    Also, as noted above, pressures get high when you load for 1-1/8 ounce, so I'd stick to using it for 1 ounce or 7/8 ounce loads.
