    What are you having to pay for shot gun powder? I'm going to need some soon. I usually get it in 4 lb cans.

    What do you think about PROMO? I have heard that you need to shake the container, smalls settle to the bottom, and check weights from drum to drum.
    Anything to it?

    Jim: I've gone through 4 - 8# kegs of Promo and find it performs no different than the Red Dot or Clays that I used to load. (I have just bought 4 more). Some shooters will claim that Promo doesn't like cold weather. If this is so, just store your reloads in a warm room. Also, you can use the same recipes for Promo as you would use for Red Dot. As far as checking weights from container to container; yes you will sometimes find a variance. However, a person should routinely check powder drops no matter what kind of powder that is being used. Use it and save some $$. Ed

    Have you considered buying Rex powder! It smokes a little but it's cheap!

    Thanks guys for the information. I'll now know about what to pay for powder and may have to consider promo over the titewad. Titewad sure does work for me on the one ouncers. The next step is to look at the load manual. Ken
