    I have the following

    Old style winchester hulls
    W209 primers
    1 1/8 Claybuster Win Replacments
    Univ Clays

    Send me a 1200 FPS load that I can use.

    There are not too many choices with your components. I've used about 21.5 - 22.0 grains with the components you listed. I got close to 1200fps if my notes are correct. 22.5 grains got me closer to 1250 fps. I usually use the Winchester WAA12 wad for serious business or cold weather. The Claybuster clone did about same in warm weather, velocity wise, but lost a bit more at colder temperatures than did the authentic Winchester WAA12 wad. I've used the Federal 209A in similar loads and the temperature related velocity change was a bit less with the Claybusters. The 1250fps load is one of my favorites for the back fence competitions and 27 yards, although I'd rather shoot the 1200 fps loads if I'm going to shoot a lot of them at one time. There is a noticable difference in recoil for me.
