    I want to load some 1 oz. shells with Promo powder. I tried to go to the Alliant web site but it won't open and I don't have a recent reloading guide from Alliant.

    I've heard Promo loads the same as Red Dot but I don't just want to "assume."

    I'll be using Winchester primers and a Claybuster CB-1200 pink wad. How many grains of Promo ? I have a mixed supply of Remington STS and Winchester Grey/Red hulls. My preference is the STS hull but I need to use up the Winchester hulls at some point - any difference in the powder charge for the different hulls ?

    Thanks in advance

    Promo is a great powder for 1 oz or 7/8oz loads. I've loaded at least 6 jugs of in last two years.

    17.5 to 17.7 grains in either hull with the CB1100 pink.

    USE A SCALE! Batch to batch Promo can vary by volume although I have never gone up or down more than one bushing in my 366.

    Stonewall is correct in 1oz. loads, I load 7\8 with 16-16.5, but I have had more variation in different lots than he reports. Be sure to use a scale. Ross

    I have used anywhere from 17.5 grs.-18.8 grs. of Promo for a 1 oz load and it really crushes targets for me. I also use in a Remington hull either Remington or CB TGT wads with the load. Like everyone has already mentioned to you, weigh the loads each time you open a new jug of Promo because the weight may vary.
