    gmag I enter the site above enter the information(using 1 1/8oz of lead and there are Federal hull listed there and they do list Windjammer wads

    Enter the info and they come up at the very bottom of the page the last three entries are what you seem to want. "?"

    "Thanks for the help but I was looking for 1 oz load data"

    Well maybe you learned something you can't get what you want unless you ask for it....LOL

    BTW I am not sure they make a windjammer wad in 1oz. I haven't loaded those in years and when I did I only loaded 1 1/8oz.

    The Top Gun hull has a big boiler room. You may be better off loading 1 1/8 ounce if you have a bunch of those wads, or get a wad suitable for your needs.

    I would recommend the Federal 12S0 wad or clone for 1 oz loads. I used 18.0 to 19.5 grains of Clays for a range from 1175 to 1250 fps. With the Windjammer 1oz. wads, I don't have much data to go on, but I did try 18.2 grains of Clays with the Federal 209A primer. It clocked a little under 1200 fps, if my notes are correct. The crimps were less than desirable and took a bit of tweaking to get them right. I have had much better results with the Federal wads in these hulls. Both the 12S0 and the 12S3 work great in the larger capacity straight tubes like the Federals.
