    Makes good hunting loads in a Federal case. Also can make good velocity loads in AA Cases. We used to use 1 & 1/8 at 1400 fps for ducks, a hit would turn them inside out.

    I think it's a little slow for most clay target shooting. As I recall it was dirty when you slowed it down. Pleasant recoil sensation, though.

    7625 & PB: Maybe the best powders made. Quite expensive for a reloader. But, I've used lots of both, and prefer the 7625. Soft shooter, but one needs to use it in at least 1 1/8 loads or you will have unused powder flying back in your face if the wind is blowing.

    If you are within driving distance of my location here in NH and want IMR 7625 I have it in 12 pound cans for $ 130.00 ea. ($ 10.83 per pound)

    Also, 12 pound 800X for $ 115.00. ($ 9.58 per pound)

    And, PB in 5 pound cans for $ 62.50. Or $ 240.00 per case of four ($ 12.00 per pound)

    I used it exclusively when it was $23.65 per 12 lb. keg. In my opinion, a 1 1/8 oz. superhcp. load is about minimum for consistant ignition. Unless you get it super cheap, though, it's not worth it.

    IMHO it's the best 20 ga skeet powder out there.

    I use it for all my handicap loads. 24.5 grains, windjammer wad, rem hull, with rem 209 primer. Softest shooting powder I've found to date. Can shoot it all day in my TMX. I have never had any problems with loading it at all. I used to load 23.5 grains for singles too but I switched back to Clays for singles to save a little money to offset the high cost of shot. Last 12 lb keg I got was $141.00 from Midestern Shooters Supply. In fact just loaded some up today!

    Bust'em All!
