    Looking for low pressure low recoil 1 1/8 oz load using sts hulls, Remington figure 8 wads and Fiocci primers. Velocity around 1150. Thanks, Bill

    look at green dot powder on the alliant web site, call alliant and they will advise re safe loads substituting the fiocci primer.

    If it is low recoil you are after, use a 1oz load of shot. Find a good 1oz load in a manual & try it. You will like it.

    Pressure ain't got nothing to do with recoil.

    OK not concerned about recoil. Looking for low pressure for older SxS guns. ! 1/8 oz load not 1 oz. :)

    Go into the powder company on-line data bases and do a little research.

    Hodgdon has 3 that might work pressure-wise.

    The recoil will be the same as the recoil of any other 1 1/8 oz load being pushed at 1100 fps regardless of the peak chamber pressure created by the ignition of the powder.

    With your hull, wad and primer: <ul><LI>23.6 gn of SR 7625 powder gives 6100 psi @ 1100 fps<li>20.8 gn of PB that gives 6400 psi at 1100 fps<LI>20.5 gn of 800X gives 6500 psi and 1150 fps</UL>Verify these personally.

    You can research Alliant for yourself.

    Green dot may be a good way to go.

    There is a relationship between pressure and recoil. If there is no pressure there is no recoil, is there is alot of pressure there is recoil. Sounds like a relationship to me. HMB

    I like Green Dot for both the 1oz. and the 1 1/8 oz loads. I shoot mostly the 1 oz. around 1185 fps, and it works excellent. For 7/8oz around 1200 to 1225 fps, I have started to use Alliant's Extra Lite.

    hmb is right. But as usual, what he said is irrelevant.

    7625 is my choice. Low recoil, good patterns.

    sts hulls are tapered more pressure federal hulls are streight walled less pressure I use federal hulls and primmers, 19 grns of green dot, 1oz shot and claybuster 12s0 wads. works very well

    Tarheel, I have been using 20/28 in my 16's and it seems to be as clean as Clay Dot if that's helpful.
