    If you are using Remington hulls, Downrange TGT-12 & Fig 8 are just about the best. IMHO--Don't go cheap on components. Claydot or Greedot for powder. Rem or Win 209 & you're good to go.

    Richard, You'll be wanting two different wads for the best results. There may be one or two wads that may work with both, but you'll need to adj. the reloader to go back and forth, with the two different wads you should not need to adj. machine. Break-em all. Jeff

    TGT12 = 1oz, Fig8 = 1 1/8oz, and Versalite = 1 1/8oz with Green Dot for caps. Promo/Red Dot works well for lighter 1 1/8 and 1oz loads. Careful with the Federal 209A, it will hike pressures in some loads. Double check the data. I usually try for 8500-9500 PSI, with an upper limit of 10,000 PSI. That gives me a little headroom for error and other variables.

    Yes, you can.

    The TGT-12 (or better yet, the Downrange DRA-12) would do this with the right powders.

    You could use something bulky like Hodgdon Clays for your 1 ounce loads, and something dense like Hodgdon Titegroup for your 1-1/8 ounce loads.
