    Hi,
    17.6 grains works for me. This powder burns clean and loads almost like Red Dot.

    Stacey, I'm not a big fan of the XL-1 wad for a number of reasons. Fit is one of them. You cannot compress the wad when ramming, because the collapsed legs will not spring back. Dennis at DRM told me I'd have to order a special, short wad seating ram for my Grand if I wanted to use that wad. I decided not to.

    My favorite 1oz load it STS or Gun Club hull, STS209 or W209 primer, 17gr e3, TGT-12 wad and 1 oz West Coast magnum shot. 1200fps. Data from Alliant and Lyman manuals.

    This has been a superb load for me. Everything fits perfectly. Use the DRM TGT-12 replacement to save a few bucks. You may be able to swap your XL-1s for the DRM TGT-12s.
