    I want to load up some 3/4 oz. loads for trap practice. I'm a Promo guy and have a lot of Remington Gun Club hulls. STS primers.
    Any suggestions for wads and powder charge?

    I have loaded 3/4 abd then 5/8 oz for years using Promo. I have success with both the CB Gray 7/8 oz wad and the DownRange hot pink 7/8 oz wad. Don't skimp on the powder. The low pressure loads don't burn powder well so use the same amount of powder you would use with a 1-1/8 oz load. Expect a little more unburned powder left in the barrel to clean. It comes out easy though with a boresnake.
