    4 or 5 years ago I remember seeing a 3/4 oz. load in Guns and Ammo or another similar magazine. This load used IMR 7625 powder and a 20 ga. nitro card for filler. For the life of me I can't come up with that article. Does anyone here have a clue what load I'm talking about ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Skip Dillin

    I "modified" a 7/8th.oz. load for 3/4th.oz. :

    STS or AA Hull

    a primer

    18.0grs. Promo

    Claybuster silver 7/8th's. wad with a 20ga. .135 card in bottom of shotcup

    3/4's oz. #8 1/2's

    Broke targets all the way back to 27 yds., but best used at 16 yds.

    THIS IS FYI ONLY...DO NOT DUPLICATE, USE, COPY or EVEN THINK OF USING THIS LOAD. NEVER USE ANY LOAD YOU GET OFF THE INTERNET. REFER TO PROPER LOADING MANUALS, CALL POWDER MANUFACTURE FOR LOADS. I ASSUME NO RESPOSIBILITY FOR USE OF THIS LOAD.

    Skip, I've got an old IMR hand-loaders guide that lists lots of 24 gram loads for SR7625 that use a 0.135 20ga. card. I need to know the hulls, primers, wads, and I can send you some recipes. There is to many to copy. Maybe I can take some pics. Wayne

    You didn't ask my opinion, but 7625 seems like a powder more suited to heavier loads than 3/4 ounce. Any particular reason you want to use it, Skip?

    Neil, The only reason for the 7625 recipe is I have that powder in hand and I seemed to remember that recipe for n3/4 oz. listed.

    Wayneo, Hulls will most likely be Win AA, primers Win 209 and wads WAA12. Primers are the only given, wads I can be flexable as can I with the hulls. Stay with AA hulls or Rem Gun Clubs.

    7625 is made for heavy 1 1/8 oz loads.

    7625 will work for light loads, but it doesn't burn efficiently and you do need to use a fair amount of it. Try the Hodgdon website. It has 24 gram loads that might be a starting point. I would go for the gray Winchester AA-12L wads that are designed for 7/8 oz loads.

    Skip, the first two pics are for Remington hulls. The second two are Winchester hulls. There is also lots of data for 1 ounce loads of SR7625. Hope this info helps, Wayne

    IMR SR 7625 is used for 28 gauge loads. I have wondered if taking a 28 gauge load and putting it in a 12 gauge hull would be o.k? I have experimented with 3/4 ounce loads with Hodgdon Clays. They work well until the weather turns cold (30 degrees) and then they are not consistant.
