    If your shooting 1oz's you won't see any difference in the target break. 7/8 oz can powder them as well as 1oz's.

    I loaded down to 7/8 to conserve shot a bit.
    STS hull win209 primer 18g clays tgt12 wad 1250fps per hodgdon recipe. I will be trying Downrange new 7/8 oz wad. I have not had any findings + or -. I miss just as bad with 1 1/8oz shot. Right now becouse of price I have been shooting the remington game loads at 1oz at 1290fps. @ 38.00 per case they shoot great.

    I think 7/8 oz. loads are the best for 12 ga. Rem. hulls win 209 primer or equivelant cb 1100 12 wad can be used for either 1 oz. or 7/8 should the need arise
    7/8 oz. reclaimed is what i shoot. Charlie

    PITA 2007-8 Rule Book,page 18 - Guns & Loads (replace) (c)Any load with a Max velocity greater then 1290 FPC with a Max shot charge of 1 1/8 Oz. (31.89 gr.) For 1 oz. loads (28.30 gr.) the Max. velocity is 1325 FPC. For 7/8 oz. (24.80) gr. the Max. velocity is 1350 FPC -- I don't know what ATA rules say on the 7/8 oz. loads

    My first 100 was with a 7/8th oz load.

    Well maybe we should not talk about that, some say it is not supposed to work that way, less shot is said to equal lower scores.

    The ATA velocity rule for hand loads is not enforced. HMB

    I load 7/8 ounce using STS hulls, Fiocchi primers, TGT12 wad (I'm going to try some Downrange wads though) and 17 grains of Promo. (I believe you could use the same recipe with your Winchester primers). Soft shooting and they work great! Also, please try to keep this a secret. I don't want just anybody copying my special formula! :) Ed

    I can't make up my mind now, Down range XX75pink, or Claybuster CB4100, they load the same shoot the same and are wicked on birds when I do my part,

    Looking in an Alliant flyer I found a load for a powder that I had a bit of that I never really thought of as shotgun powder, the last 300 hundred loads I backed down from 17.5 to 16.5, I am about out of XX75 and so far there are no distributers here so the CB4100's may win the it's what I use by default.

    Any rem hull and fed 209, sweet is an understatemnt, a steady diet of them and after 500 targets 95.6, what a rush!

    So my recipe is Any REM hull, Alliant *******e 16.5 or 17.5grains, Fed 209, a good 7/8oz wad and right at 490 grains of shot

    If I had not found the load I never would have dreamed the powder was so useful!

    Al: I think you are loading a tad too much shot in your 7/8 oz loads. (Like about 100 grains) No wonder you're not saving any $$ on shot! :) Ed

    I might be reading the scale wrong, I don't often need to read that end, I know I am seeing plenty of the top of the wad and getting over 500 loads per bag of shot, I also bought a 3/4oz bar and 13/16oz bar for my loader, just because they were there.

    I have loaded 7/8 for well over 20 years. Started using Fed Paper & SO wad.
    My current load is Win AA or Rem STS with Win gray wad,matching primer to the hull manufacturer & using 16.3 of Clays. I get about 1180 chrono & have always had very even pattern results. By using a Rem TGT wad & 1oz shot,it makes a superb 1oz load,recoil is very lite. Chrono is about 1140. I have shot a few 100 of these at the pattern board & it is really sweet. It is one of my standard patterning loads.
    I believe the real key in 1,7/8 & 3/4 oz 12 ga loads is to ALWAYS match the primer to hull,ie same manufaturer
