    I just bought 2, 8 lb. jugs of Promo. Now I can't find any loads that use exactly the components I have. AA hull, Downrange XL-1 Jammer wad, 1 oz, Cheddite primer and Promo.

    Anyone have any loads that use exactly these components? I know I can come close with the published data I've been able to find, but nothing exact. I'd like to at least try....

    Thanks!

    Bruce- I think I have the data you are seeking, but I will never post reloading data on the net and I would advise you never to rely on data posted on the net. Call Ben at Alliant (Radford, VA) and he will give you more than you want.

    If you can find the data for your load in the Red Dot data then you can use the same data for Promo. It loads identical to Red Dot but is a denser powder so it requires a smaller bushing. Weigh your charges!!!

    Well, threedeuces, I knew I could find the data somewhere so I don't think your remark is true. But I did get advice and information that I could use and can cheerfully ignore your mindless comment.

    I do thank everyone else. I think I'm all set...

    I know that 3 gr. of Bullseye is a great load with a 148 gr. WC...I bet the burn rates of these three are very close, if not identical.
