    Other than Hodgdon who has a usage chart? As I age I forget which powders can be used for what gauge and for which sport. I tried to post the chart but couldn't get it to post so click on url for list. If you know of a list for others(IMR etc.) please let me know. Jackie

    Simple. Fast powders for shotgun and pistol, slow powders for rifle.

    I do not have the ability to conceive of a powder difference for sporting clay over trap or skeet. I load for 1150 FPS for singles and skeet, and 1235 for Handicapand sporties.

    The link will get you a nice chart to further confuse you. Always use a published recipe, always use a scale.

    IMR Powders: 700x fast burning used for 1 oz, 1 1/8 oz loads, PB slower burning and best for 1 1/8 loads, 7625 slower yet good for high speed handicap and 1 1/4 oz. field loads, 4756 their slowest shotgun powder and good for 20 GA, and 28 GA. as well as 12 GA. magnum loads. Hope that helps. BRGII

    IMR has a "powder profile" page:

    The chart is a table of links that won't work in my screencap so you'll need to visit the web site to use it.
