    I was given a number of 1 oz reloads at the club the other night and one that was very soft and about 1200 fps was 20.6 of international clays,a green duster wad, cheddite primer in a remington shell case. I've looked on the Hogsdon web site and haven't been able to confirm the load. Does any one have a favorite International 1oz load?

    Well, the load is MUCH faster than 1,200 ft./sec with 20.6 of International. I would guess closer to 1,300 ft./sec. Load down to 19.6 International [or even 19.0] for a one ounce load and the pattern will be excellent and even less recoil. Plus a bouns of saving powder. Check the Hogdon Reloading guide. Fred

    Just curious..

    Have you actually chronographed your 1 1/8 oz load using the same powder charge?

    It seems to me that the 1 oz load would go faster, everything else being the same.

    I shoot the same load you describe. soft and patterns well. If I want to kick it up a notch I use P &B cases and SO wads and a mec # 32 bush. can feel it a little more but could shoot a couple 100 without being sore. I usually put -----71/2 in these for handicap. Marv White
