    If you have a fav light load for titewad and want to share please let me know. Also if your using a mec what bushing are you using. I do have a powder scale and ALWAYS measure after setting up for a new load but wondering how light you can go.Looking for under 1100fps. TY

    The loading data will tell you what you need to know. Anything else is guessing!

    you are not going to get much lighter than 1100fps with titewad. published data anyway? you want to get below 1100fps try some Winchester WAAlite 1oz 1 1/8 oz loads down into the 970fps range, these are great for women and kids shooting 870 or 12g O/U starting out.

    stiper,,This is not set in stone, but I use 16 gr. tite wad, a #25 bushing in a mec 9000G,,,same power for 7/8 and 1 oz. loads in AA hulls, win 209 primer, claybuster wads, in a browning xt combo, 34 in barrel,,,it gives me 1215 fps in the 1 oz loads, (I have not cron-graf 7/8),,and it smokes them a 16 and 21 yd line (if I do my part).
