    Yes that is all I use,15.7---or 16.2.
    I should say that I only use TGT-12 Wads or Claybuster version.
    Very soft shooting,I have won many matches with this load.

    I use it, 16 grains is around 1145, use a clone TGT wad and you are set to go. I have used tight group at 16 grains, 17 and 18 grains, they all work well. Scott

    I'm loading 16.4 in AA's. Very accurate dropping powder, not overly clean burning like Clays, but seems to recoil less. If I had to switch from my usual PB, I don't think I'd miss a beat. That's saying something!!

    ditto everyone's comment on 1oz tgt12 wad for 1 1/8 oz lead. Tite group is very dense and charge weights are small. Crimps will sink in with 1 1/8 oz wads. The reloading manuals don't tell you that.

    I personally like it for 1 1/8 oz, but not for 1 oz, for reasons stated above. Scott

    So erm, with TGT12 wads, you expect to adjust the wad seater to be adjusted up so as not to get the sink in or cup at the crimps?

    Did you experiment with other wads?

    TGT is one of the taller wads, a XXL DR would possibly get a better crimp. Scott

    Shot 5 stand today with 1 oz. 8's @ 1330fps. with 19.3 grs. Titegroup in a TGT-12 Wad. Easy to crimp and it will smackém. Recoil from a 391 was not a problem using a Rio primer.

    Need a 1 oz wad with Titegroup because it is so dense. If you are heavily invested in "regular" Fig8's, white AA wads, Windjammers, etc then they will not be a good combination. If you have TGT12's, orange AA wads or 1oz Windjammers they will work beautifully for 1 1/8oz reloads with Titegroup.
