    Both Hodgdon and Alliant have International sections. Alliant's is a menu item; for Hodgdon, sort for 24gm.

    Don't overlook what Shooting Coach and I have known for a good while: Misc. Eurotrash hulls are pretty inexhaustable, and the VP-05 makes a goooood bunker bullet.

    What Bob said

    Rio primers, a healthy dose of Solo 1000, Eurotrash hull, 24 grams of good 7 1/2 shot, and bye-bye Bunker target.

    I have never paid for a good once-fired Eurotrash hull. I have about 4-55 gallon barrels of them. Oddly enough, I prefer to load them. They are very predictable.

    I like the Claybuster clone of the Fed 12SO wad.

    Fiocchi, Rio, Eley, RC, Saga, Clever-Mirage, Cheddite, Nobel, Kemen, B&P, etc.

    Anything that uses a Reifenhauser hull.

    I think maybe the ultra-cheap Winchesters, and Federal Top Gun hulls are too.

    Probably the biggest key is using good, hard shot.

    In my never to be humble opinion, proper chokes are cardinal for 24 gram loads. My primary Bunker gun, a Browning Special Sporting Edition, will not perform well with anything tighter than Light Full. I use Improved Modified on the first barrel, Light Full for the second.

    My primary ATA trap gun, an Ultra XT, breaks targets harder with tighter chokes, up through Extra Full. These chokes give "Gee Whiz!" breaks with this gun. The very same XF chokes give mediocre breaks in the Bunker gun.

    I have had the best performance with extended Angle Port bore-matched choke tubes.

    I get great results with Eagle. Many folks scoff at this brand, but I have run many straights and get hard breaks with the second barrel.
