    1.125 oz # 8 @ 1170 for 16ydm - 97.25 %

    1.125 oz #8 @ 1250 for Hdcp @ 23 yds - 92 %

    1 oz # 8 @ 1170 for first shot doubles & Hdcp load for second shot.- 92% but getting better :)

    One ounce at 1250 for everything but Bunker and Caps. 1 1/8 oz at 1250 for Caps.

    24 grams at 1350 for Bunker.

    How do you approach the 1350 for Bunker, without going over?

    1 oz. @1200 fps for practice and registered singles.

    1 oz. @ 1200 for practice handicap and 1 1/8 @1235 for registered handicap (25 yd)

    Also use same 1 oz. load for first shot in doubles and the same as above 1 1/8 oz for second shot.

    I simply use listed data for Solo 1000, my all time favorite powder.

    IIRC, USA Shooting does not have a velocity limit for Bunker loads. Over speeding them is of no advantage. You need EVERY PELLET in a 24 gram load.
