The Extra Lite works great here in Minnesota during the winter and summer. I use that same amount of powder in Winchester AA hulls with the CB 0178-12 wad. Hits the birds hard.
Yeah, primers are high dollar around me. IF you can find them at retailers most of them have not increased the price much. We have a local auction house selling them for $100-$175/1kMy 7/8 this year I been using STS hulls, ched209, 15.5gr red dot, DRXXL Pink, and #8 they break targets very hard and very easy on my shoulder except I’ll seldom get the cheddite thumper c’mon win209 I miss ya
My son was the Mn. State class singles runner up ~15 years ago, Clays, W209 and Rem hulls. DR XL-1 wads with 1 oz. payloads. He has been in many shoot offs at Alex but never won a leather bag all he wanted LOL. But his name is on many plaques in clubs in Mn. and Wi. Shooting against Wi. during the blizzard leagues at twenties below and windchill of 40 below they always went bang. When he placed first in Wi. at Holmen in Wi. first prize was a bottle of Southern Comfort. They were confused as to what to do with the prize, he had just turned 15. And said Dad get up here.

I have used the 1oz equivalent with the Remington hull load before. I'll have to try the 7/8oz. I use ALL Remington hulls. Gold nitro hulls are my Longshot /Annie loads, Green STS Hulls are 1-1/4oz, Gun club hulls are my concrete shells.7/8 oz. is all I use for 16 yards. Have 2 Mec's set up for this load, one with Red Dot, and the other with 700X. With Remington hulls, 16.0gr 700X with CB1100-12 wad or CB0178-12 wad. With Winchester hulls, 16.5gr Red Dot with CB1100-12 wad or CB0178-12 wad.
