    I am looking for a receipe for 1oz and 7/8 oz loads using Red Dot and which Downrange wad to purchase.

    I and using Remington STS hulls and Winchester primers, when I purchase more primers I will be changing to something more affordable but I was given these when I got my reloader so I am using them up.

    Thanks
    Ron

    Ron, I have been loading down range XL1,16.4 red dot, fiocchi 209 in spring, summer, fall and win or rem 209 in winter. Winter is cold her 20 above is as good as it gets. The Fiocchi's will give you a blooper once in 25 at least in cold weather. Bill

    18 grains of Red Dot or Promo under an XL1 crushes clays! I prefer 7/8 ounce loads, so I use the new XXL pink wads with the same charge through a .035 choked 85TSS. May be just me but this load seems to smoke more clays than anything else I've tried.

    The more I read the more I'm thinking 7/8 so I'll order some of the pinks in and try the load out.

    Thanks Andy

    Bill isn't that a little light?
