    Anyone have a special recipe using the Federal Paper Hull, 700X Powder and the Federal 12S3 wad going 1145 fps. I have a quantity of all 3 and want to use them up. Primary primer will be the Federal 209A. Cannot find any published data. Thanks. Bob in Los Angeles

    Here's what I use and have used for many years with great results.

    1-1/8 oz., Fed. Paper hull, 12S3 (or clone) wad, Fed. 209A primer, 17 grs. of 700X = 1150 fps.

    1 oz., Fed. Paper hull, 12S0 wad, Fed. 209A primer, 17 grs. of 700X = 1200 fps

    The 1 oz. is what I now prefer. Less recoil and will destroy the target if you do your part. It's a great load for singles and both shots of doubles.
