    I switched to Promo for Singles and Doubles loads and it is working well for me. The only problem was the first batch of reloads had a heavier powder drop than I wanted and I cut back on subsequent batches. Be very careful to weigh the powder charges of any new jug of Promo.

    I've been using Promo for several years and it works just fine- it throws shot out the end of the barrel just as good as any other powder. That's about all you can expect from any gunpowder.

    I guess all the talk about how many targets you missed made me think that was the purpose of the thread.
