    Has anyone used the CB Lighting wads, and have any 1oz. load recomendations?

    I want to use Rem. STS, RXP, or Gun Club hulls and E3 powder, prefer win 209
    primers.

    Mash the link above to get CB data sheet, which does not have e3, but e3 is a 'one ounce powder' so it is pretty easily cross-referable to more popular powders and ballistically similar wads.

    i.e. go to Alliant's site and look for e3 data for WAA-SL/CB-1100 loads. (16-19gn, depending on how fast you want to go.)

    Or, if you want the ultimate 'kink' for loading e3, subtract ±1½gn from any AS recipe ... 16½ or 17gn of e3 is what you're looking for, or 18gn if you want to go a little faster.

    e3 is low pressure enough that you're not going to hurt the equipment, even at 20gn.

    I use them in 12 ga. 1 oz. loads with AA hulls and 700X powder. Work just as well as the AA-SL wads for me.
