    International Clays at 1235-1250, WT12 wad, WW209 primer, and 1 1/8 oz. of 7 1/2's in a Grey AA hull. Crushes target when I get the gun in the right place. When I have to shoot factory loads, It's Remington Nitro 27's at 1235 with 1 1/8 oz. of 7 1/2's. They smash 'em too......

    The recipe in the Hodgdon data tables using Titegroup and TGT-12s (or the Downrange equivalent wad) that nearly exactly matches the Nitro 27 1-1/8 ounce factory shell.

    timb99 has a good load above..I've been experimenting with Tite Group and discovered a great load..pressure a bit higher then I would like but just about duplicates a Nitro 27.

    Nitro 27 but I won't buy a remington product so I guess I'll settle for a Federal.
