    How fast do you want to go? I use a lot of Promo. The data is readily available at www.alliantpowder.com. Choose your components and choose the velocity and look for reasonable pressures (Around 9500 PSI or less). You then should make up a box of shells and see how they work. I usually freeze half the box and leave the reat at room temp. I then test them for velocity over a chronograph to see how they perform in the cold. Depending on how fast you want to go, Clay Dot is another good powder. American Select or E3 will do too. If price is a concern, you will have a hard time beating Promo. Clay Dot is also pretty reasonable and decent for light to moderate 1oz loads.

    +1 for 17 gr of Promo. I load it in Remington hulls behind a DRRT12 wad with 1oz hard 8s and use NobelSport primers. Gives me ~1150 with enough pressure for a clean consistant burn. According to the book ~8,500psi. Great load, soft and breaks birds hard.

    Yea I was using Nitro 100 then I seen the price difference between that and Promo so I thought I would give it a try but I couldn't find much info on it and 1oz loads but 17gr. does look right so I'll load some up tomorrow. Thanks.

    Promo is good if your using a break open gun. Claydot is my go to for 1 oz loads in an auto. For me Promo, is a little too dirty for my auto but no problem in my break opens guns.. BTW...Promo uses the same data as Red Dot.

    Faster burning powders work a little better in light loads. There are many good ones available. I use American Select because that is what I use for my singles loads but other powders will do just as well.

    Go to the on line Alliant Web Site and you can find several excellent powders for 1 oz loads. Promo is the least expensive. Clay Dot, e3, Red Dot and American Select work well. The new Extra Light could be a good choice. I have no experience with this powder yet.

    Mike, where did you get Extra Light at that price?

    I see around a hundred bucks.

    Clays or Clay Dot 17.5gr
    I will use the new Extra -Lite 15.5gr for the cold weather. So far it working good.
    Remington hulls downrange 1 oz wads and Remington primes.

    I got my Extra-lite at the PA State shoot. Alliant had a special going on. If you buy 2 8 lbs jug you got a fee shell bag. I think I paid $170 for the 2 8# jugs.

    Alliant E-3, 18 grains, drownrange 1 oz wad, win primer, aa hull. You will not even know you shot anything through the barrel very, very, clean burning.

    I'll add my experience with new Extra-Lite and 1oz at 1150fps (GC/TGT/Cheddite). It throws very consistant thru the MEC (+/- 0.1gr) and feels just as consistent. (I do not chrono my loads but one reporter did and found vel. to be very consistent.) It leaves virtually no residue in barrel - just some fouling at the forcing cone area. Perceived recoil is somewhat sharper than my usual 1 oz powder - Promo; I will attribute this to faster burn/pressure curve. Oh, and at a 15.5gr charge weight, somewhat more economical than the rest of the Alliant stable
