    Does anyone have a load that will duplicate the Remington 12 Ga. "Managed Recoil" load of 7/8 shot at 1100 fps? Very soft load but a little too expensive to buy. Emailed request to Alliant but, have not received a reply as of yet. Thank you.

    Alamo,
    Look at the load data for WAALite:
    Hodgdon web site.

    Many loads listed.

    Pretty tough to beat 14.5 gr of Nitro100 under a DownRange XXL wad for a very light 7/8 oz load. About 1150 fps and under 7000psi.

    Chip.. I loaded that shell for children.. when they shot at the Concord Hotel in the late 60's..early 70's..when I worked for Capt. Henry Foxman.. Paper hulls,Ljutic mono-wad.. A 12 gauge 7/8oz shell was unheard of at the time.. I've loaded it ever since for my younger shooting buddies.. From the 16..or skeet.. it destroys targets..

    WW,NobleSport, Fiocchi primer;16.0-16.5 gr REX-0(or 16.5-17.0 REX-1) 4100 or pink Downrange in a AA case. I used the Nitro 100 load mentioned above for a good while liked it too REX is just cheaper.
