    Wondering if any of you have chronoed any of these. I have loaded some Rem Gun Club hulls with Down Range Fig 8 Replacement wads for Rem Fig 8 or CB8118-12, 1 1/8oz shot and 18.5 gr Red Dot and a Win 209 primer. Shoots good, breaks targets well but seems like a pretty stiff load. Much like a new 3 dram Gun Club load. The Alliant manual shows 18.0 with the above components moving at 1145fps, 18.5 was as close as I could get with my bushings. I intend these for sixteen yards only and think I should drop a bushing or two.

    Anybody out there shot this or a similiar combination to good result??

    Try Green Dot for the 1 1/8 ounce loads and use the Red Dot for 1 ounce shells. HMB
