    Most likely yes,,,,,,, You do not indicate powder charge. You should be able to within in a reasonable amount of time research that load in the powder books or even on line..

    Good luck

    Well the answer is a qualified yes, they may require a denser powder as that is what they were originally designed for. Some get by adding a little more wad pressure. The main difference is total length, so if you collapse the wad a little more than you did with the fig.8s you "may" be OK, they may have a tendency to want to open a little if your hulls have a few miles on them. That said I have used them for 1&1\8 oz, back when I shot 1&1\8 I now use them for 7\8 with "0" wad pressure. Ross Puls

    I also load 1 1/8 oz loads in the STS hull. I purchased a couple cases of the TGT12 wads a few years ago and I'm just finishing them off. They work just fine. I use Clays powder, and to tell you the truth, the shell is way full when it gets to the crimp stage. Occasionally I need a vacuum close by :). The best thing to do would be to save these wads for your 16yd load and only load 1 1/16 oz shot. Or use a powder like Titegroup. You use so little Titegroup that there is more room in the shell.
