    any of you guys ever use Tightwad powder? I just bought some to try, the recomended charge weights are low, so shouldn't use as much as some others. It has a very silvery color and a different smell to it. because of the low charge weight {16.2 gr.} for 1 1/8oz. i have a little space left over in a STS hull with a wt12orange wad. Anyone else use it?

    Titewad is a great 1oz. powder using sts hull,claybuster wad and about 18.5 grains of powder.When I tried it with 1 1/8 oz loads it seemed to kick.I like green dot much better when loading an 1 1/8 oz loads.

    I shoot 16.1 grains in an STS with a fig. 8 wad and Fiocchi primer with 1 1/8 of hard 7 1/2 shot. Great load. Try it, you will like it. For me, not a lot of recoil in my K-80. Clean burning and you get more reloads out of 8 lbs. than most other powders. I have been using it for about 3 years, and probably 6 or 8 kegs. The only draw back is it's a fine grain powder and would leak a little around the charge bar of my MEC until I got a PC brand powder baffle. that stopped it nearly totally. Use it in good faith, it's a great powder.

    make sure to weigh your charges, the preasures on titewad can climb quickly.

    Lead Shot 12 1 1/8 oz. Titewad Rem. 209P Rem. Fig. 8 15.2 9,100 PSI 1090 I grabbed a lb one time when I saw it at the gun shop. pressures seemed high compared to FPS. it was about 4 more per pound also. Have not seen it locally since. Clays or Red dot is what is mostly available.

    I use Titewad exclusively for my 7/8 and 1 oz loads (practice & registered). I use an STS/Gun Club/Nitro hull, 209P primer, and TGT-12S / Figure 8 wad. I use 17.4 grains for the 7/8 load and 16.7 grains for the 1oz load. Due to presumeably higher pressures, I use Clays for the 1-1/8 load.

    Titewad works well in Gold Medal or Walmart Federal hulls for 7/8 and 1 ounce loads with either 12S0 or CB4100 wads. Using an anti-static spray (from Walmart laundry section) on the hulls, prior to loading, helps keep the static down (and the powder where it belongs rather than migrating).
