    Try 18.0 grains 700x, Remington 209P primer, Remington F8 wad, 1 1/8 Oz shot. Should be 1,200 FpS but that is about as hot as you will want to go.

    My favorite is Rem. hull( sts or nitro ) 17 grs, 700X, Win. 209 primer, Downrange XXL (blue) 1 1/8 oz #8 shot. I shoot it 16-27 yard line, and you don't have to worry about two differt loads. Thats a H bushing out of a Ponsness/Warren loader.

    Bear in mind the below listed recipes that I use are for Federal Hulls (Top Gun, Walmart Multi-Purpose, Estates, Gold Medal plastic and paper).

    I only use 2 types of loads:

    1 - 17 grs. of 700X, 1 oz. of hard shot, 12S0 wad, 209A primer. 1200 fps.

    2 - 19.5 grs. of 700X, 1-1/8 oz of hard shot, 12S3 wad, 209A primer. 1250 fps.

    One of my favorite 700X loads is 4.8 grains behind a 230 grain FMJ from my .45 ACP.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    You beat me to it 100straight. 700X really sends a hardball down range, slide snaps back real nice. Gotta love the old .45.
