    How many shoot 7625 powder at trap and how happy are you with this powder. What is your handicap yardage?

    I shoot 7625 exclusively. I have been shooting for 58 years and loading for 50 and have never found a powder I like any better. It only has one drawback. It is expensive. I shoot only games from 27 to 45 yards. I used PB for years and have used all the other powders

    cubancigar2000 thanks for the reply. I shoot PB and 7625 is about the same price. I see there is all kinds of loads for for my favorite wad (RXP's) and I thought I would get a little imput from the trapshooters about how they like 7625.

    There are few better powders than 7625, but there are several TRAP powders that will push an ounce or so of lead at 1200fps a good bit less expensively.

    I use a lot of 7625, shooting rhinoceros rollers in my Damascus guns - 7625 has no pressure issues.

    I use it for some very nice 1 & 1/4 oz hunting loads, over 1400 FPS, but found it dirty and too low pressure for trap loads. The low pressure led to inconsistent velocity.

    Best stuff ever!!! Good for 12 through 28 gauge loads, trap and hunting loads, meters like water, nice smell, smoke keeps the 'skeeters away, but...

    It is expensive, but so is everything else about this sport.

    One of the best 20 ga powders made. That's all I use in the 12, 20 and 28 ga.

    Put me in Lou's corner (cubancigar2000) for the very same reason. Best Annie Oakley powder going from any yardage they want to shoot..... Have shot them for both "line loads", and "parking lot loads", and, if I put the gun on the target, the powder takes care of the rest..... Just my experience.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I use 24 grains of 7625 with a cheddite primer, downrange winjammer replacement in Winchester AA hulls. I think its a good load and its easy on the shoulder. I shoot it from 20 to 27 with 8s or 7 and 1/2s with good results. I also like PB for 1 ounce loads.

    If SR 7625 is so popular then why is it so expensive?

    I'm not sure it is super popular, due to its price. If were more affordable, I think it would be much more popular among shooters. I think that single based powders are more succeptible to deterioration than double base powder and that may cause the powder companies to make smaller lots of it. Smaller supply probably causes some increase in the price. I would expect that there may be production cost differences between single and double base powders, such as a stabilizing additive, that could increase the cost of PB and 7625 as well, but its only speculation on my part.
