    I need some help with a reload for Solo 1000 for Winchester AA Wa12s wad and Chedite primer 1 oz loads 1200fps. Accurate web page does not show any loads less than 1 1/8 for Winchester AA. They have info for Remington STS down to 7/8 oz. I have been trying to contact Accurate but they have not returned my calls. I found older reloading data that shows 1 oz loads. This data shows 18.4 for 1 oz and the new tables show the same 18.4 for 1 1/8 oz. http://pdf.textfiles.com/manuals/FIREARMS/2003guide.pdf

    Just from my ;memory so do not hold me to it..... I am not home but i use those same loads... but i believe i use 17.5 grains... makes 1150fps on 1 1/8 oz load and 1200 1oz load. Like i said it from memory but thats what i have used for the last 10 years or so.. Maybe someone has good solid book data that is home that will chime in.

    My Accurate Reload manual ver 3-2 shows:
    1 1/8 oz S1000 WAA 12 15.5 7546PSI 1050fps, 16.8 8844PSI 1100fps, 17.8 10141psi 1150fps, 18.9 11439psi 1200fps. This is with the Win HS or one piece hull, and a Win/Rem/Cheddite primer. I have a couple of versions of the Accurate manual in PDF format if you PM an email address to me.

    I load 18.5 Solo 1000 in gun clubs using Rio Primers and DR Jammer XL1 wads. I've broke a lot of good scores with this load. I got this load years ago from TexasTrapshooter, Ron Schroer, who has broken many 200s with this load.

    i have been loading it for years 18 grns with 1 oz chrono out to 1180-1200 fps.

    for me. that should be a good load for you if thats the speed you want.

    kfen, I don't see that data in the 2003 guide.

    Here is what mine shows for the 1oz load:

    AA hull, Cehdite 209 primer, 18.5gr Solo 1000, WAA12SL wad, 1 oz shot for 1200fps @ 8000psi. Note that this data is for .055" deep crimps, NOT the .080" deep crimps specified in the newer data. There are no one ounce loads listed for the WAA12 wad, which is a 1 1/8oz wad.
