    Ditto to Perazzi BB, original Fed papers were Red Dot with a 12C1 6 point crimp. I was told that the Red Dot was a special variation 40 years ago but still Red Dot.

    With the S3 & C1 wads I have always used PB powder. Sure,it is very expensive but so is trapshooting. Find the velocity you want in the book & back off about 1 grain. By actual chrono figures the backing off 1 grain gives closest to the book velocities. PB is a superb powder for straight wall cases & gives a futher recoil reduction that those cases allow. Great patterns also because of the time/pressure curve. PB,very expensive. So is the gas to get to the shoot @ $4.00/gallon & shot @ $40/bag.

    Hi, I have about 12,000 Once fired papers left and the load I use is as follows.


    22.5 Green Dot

    12c1 Wad

    Federal 209 or 209A

    1 1/8 OZ shot This load will hammer a target,recoil is mild and with #6 shot is my favorite load for games in the moderate velocity class. Jeff

    Federal reloading data for papers with 209A primers, 12S3 wads, and 1 1/8 oz shot calls for 18 grains 700-X for light loads (1145fps) and 19 grains for heavy (1200fps) I have used this recipe for a long time. Great load.

    one ounce load good to the 27 as follows: 20.5 grs. solo 1000 12s3 wad and fed. 209a primer awesome loadgreat pattern and very little recoil. I know you said 11/8 but this load is just as good and saves you a little shot.

    23.5 grains of PB, W209, but if you don't have some original 12C1's, I wouldn't bother

    Federal Paper, Fed. 209 primer, 18 grains of Red Dot was my starting load then substituted the Push and Cushin for C-1 wad. Later substituted the 12S3 wad and the 209A primer but always stayed with Red Dot. Took me to the 27 yard line and several 200 plus singles runs. Switched to Gold Medal plastic cases but stayed with Red Dot and Federal primers. Now use Promo and will go to Fio. primers when current supply of Federals run out. Post-2
