    Am switching from Clays Powder to Titewad (Clays not available). Hodgen reloading manual is not specific enough using my primer shell wad combinations. I use STS Hulls, Ceddite Primers, Downrange or Windjammer Wads, for 1 oz and 1 1/8 oz loads. I need more specific information about the proper powder charge using the above components. Anyone out there who can help?

    I got my Titewad info from www.Hodgdon.com and a few recipes are printed on the container. I do use the Cheddite as a direct replacement for the Win.209 though. Its a great powder.

    Here's the Hodgdon website. It usually has what I need, although you might not find Cheddite data. Jennifer

    The pressures can get quite high very quickly using 1 1/8 oz of shot. Choose your load carefully.

    Titewad is a great 7/8 and 1 oz powder. I always felt that it gets a little "punchy" when used for anything else.

    Use care,,I followed the manuel, loaded some 1 1/8 in STS/Gold hulls. Book called for 18.5 grains, for 1200 fps,,,it turned to be 1415 fps. I went back to 17.5, does a good job for me.
