    I use STS Hulls, Rem 209 Primer, TGT 12 wad, and 19 to 19.5 gr of Solo 1000. I have used it for years for the first shot of doubles using 8 1/2 magnum shot.
    It is a published recipe, listing 19.5 gr at 1200 fps ( Accurate Reloaders Guide, 2003, page 51). My buddy and I prefer this load over new STS 1 oz. loads for the 1st shot of doubles. Very little recoil. I have never patterend the shell . Please fefer to the reloading guide.

    Use 18 and a Blue Duster, or AA12, just seat the wad on the powder--maybe 15 pounds of pressure. Win or equivalent primer in a Remington or AA hull, puts them just over 1200 fps and under 8K#. Shoots nice and tight.

    I load 18.5 gr Solo 1000 in a gun club hull using Rio primers with either AA or downrange 1 oz wads. It shoots well. I got the recipe from Ron Schroer about 4 years ago and have shot it ever since. Ron's averages will tell you how well it shoots.

    Win AA hull - Win 209 primer - AA12SL wad - 18 1/2 gr Solo 1000. Will give you 1200fps.

    20 grains will get you 1290fps.

    KelleyPLK...... If you want load data on Solo 1000 for a 1 oz recipe why don't you just go to Accurate Powder's web site, the URL above will take you there.

    Then use your powder scale to determine which MEC bushing will throw the correct grains of powder that you want for your load. If you don't have a powder scale you sure should have one for your safety and those around you!
