    What do you all think of the floolwong loads using green dot

    1oz rem sts or nitro shells, rem, win, fochie (sp) or chedite (sp) primers
    Down range 1 oz wad and 20g green dot

    1 1/8 with a versilite wad or tg12 or diwnrange windjamer 20g green dot
    primers any of the above.

    It looks like both loads are about 1200fps. in the 8,000 09,000 psi range

    Anyone using something like this and how do you like it.

    Shot either 8's or 71/2's

    I think he meant "following".

    BTW- If you have the GreenDot already, those loads are fine!

    To each his own on what components you use. I reload some handicap and a super sporting type load with Green Dot. I like it. Get good results with my Remington components.

    19.5 gr. Green Dot, AA hull, Fio primer, AA 12SL wad, #8's. Will smoke anything from the 16 to the 27. using a .030 choke in a Ljutic. That's about all I use now.

    My 1 oz load uses 19.0 - 19.5 grains of Green Dot with the Remington TGT12 or clone. The 1 1/8 oz load with the Versalite wad is a good one. You could go about 1/2 grain heavier, but there would be no real advantage. Just double check the data against what's out on Alliant.com and other "Reliable" sources. I don't use the Fiocchi primers in colder weather, nor do I use the Remingtons, since I shoot a gaspipe. They cause some spectacular flames to be sent out of the ejection port, mostly noticable at night. The Winchester Primers are the ones I would suggest, since I've had good results with them AND there is actually some published data for them.
