    Relivetively new reloader here, looking to use for handicaps, what powders of Hodgden or Alliant would you recommend to get to 1200-1290 fps.
    (I have learned a great deal from reading the posts here in the past couple months, thanks to all who have contributed)

    If you are talking about 1 ounce loads, then almost anything will work well. If 1 1/8 ounce loads, then Green Dot or PB overall. TiteGroup, Int Clays and American Select OK up to 1235fps.

    Take a look at the factory recipes and it will be perfectly clear; then make sure you have a reliable scale....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    For 1 1/8 oz of shot, I like Green Dot. For 1 oz loads, I like American Select or Clay Dot. My recommendations are a little narrower than those of zzt and I suspect he understands why.
