    Their is a good amount of info on the Fig.8's but little on the TGT12S, It is listed under 1oz. but nothing under 1 1/8oz The bag has both listed. Can it be used for both? Should it be? What about RXP12's.
    Looking for some load info, 1145 and 1200 fps loads Clays powder, Win. primers, Rem hulls.

    Thanks

    Doug: I have used the Figure 8 wads for 1 ounce loads with no problem. (Had to make a minor adjustment on the finish crimp). I have used the TGT12 and the RXP wads for both the 1 ounce and 1 1/8 loads. You might have to adjust the crimp a little, but they will work fine in the STS hull. I have used 17.5 grains of clays for 16 yard and 18 grains of clays for handicap and it makes for a soft shooting shell that will do the job if you do yours. Ed

    I use the TGT-12s wad in my 1-1/8 ounce handicap loads as a substitute for the Figure-8 wad in Hodgdon's data, showing Remington Nitro 27 duplication loads with TITEGROUP powder.

    The reason you can use the TGT-12s for a 1-1/8 ounce load with TITEGROUP is because TITEGROUP is very dense, and the height of the TGT-12s wad works well with the 1-1/8 ounce payload, since it is "taller" than the Figure 8. With dense powders you can run the risk of caved-in crimps.

    I don't think you'd have much luck using the TGT-12s with 1-1/8 ounces of shot and CLAYS powder, since CLAYS is not a very dense powder.

    Works great!

    CHS said it backwards, but timb99 nailed it. The TGT-12 works great in STS hulls for 1oz loads with all powders, even really dense ones like 700X, and with very dense powders for 1 1/8oz. I prefer the Fig-8 to the RXP12 wad for all 1 1/8oz loads with "normal" powders.

    I can switch between 1 oz and 1 1/8 oz bushings in STS hulls on my PW with no changing of anything. The wad was designed to be for either and its marked on the case as such. Jeff

    I've loaded both the TGT-12 and the RXP-12 wads and I prefer the older, RXP; both work well, the STS hulls I load on an old MEC Grabber crimp a little better with the RXP


    I load 17.5-17.7 Red Dot for singles & doubles and 18.1 to 18.2 for HDCP
