Like to go to a less recoil powder than my 17 gr 700x.
PB is so expensive and to keep pressure up in GD you use so much of
it.I use 1 oz at 16 1 1/8 for caps. Will you help me,I shoot 8.5 Lb. gun
no recoil device,thanx,shoot in Wisc weather.

Got to Hogdgens Universal clays page and take a look..........

What is meant by GD " you have to use so much to keep the pressures up? You dont need excessive pressure for velocity ? Is that what your saying....

I don't know your other components, but I use 19.5 grains of Green Dot for both my 1 ounce and 1-1/8 ounce.

The 1 ounce is 1200 fps. 8300 psi. Win primer, Win hull, Green Duster Wad.

The 1-1/8 is 1175/9500. Win primer, Win hull, Blue Duster.

Buying 8 lb. jugs, my cost for powder is about $1.00 per box.

I've never had a problem with cold weather, but I keep my shells at room temperature, or at least over 40 degrees.

I always used 700X or E3 With 1 oz. loads for all my trap but this summer and

fall as our team got pushed back beyond 22 yards I thought I would go to some

1 1/8 oz. loads. After some research I also decided on Green Dot.

Am using 19.5 to 20 grains Green Dot (33 or 34 bushing in my 9000g) in a

AA HS hull with Downrange DRA-12 wads and win.209's. Should be close to 1200

FPS.

Absolutely loving this load as it is smoking targets from the 25 yard line in

league.

Some say that felt recoil has to be more with 1 1/8 oz. at 1200 fps vs.

1 oz. at 1200 fps no matter the powder burn rate. Well that is not what I

am experiencing. The 1 1/8 with Green Dot are just as soft if not softer

shooting than my 1200 fps 1 oz. loads.

As they say you're mileage may vary. Hasn't been real cold here yet, so

I am not sure how they will perform later this winter. Might try a hotter

primer then like a Federal. Dan from Wisconsin

I use 19gr. of Green Dot in the Rem. hull with the CB1100 claybuster or green TGT fig. 8 clone wad and any primer.
This seems like a good mid yardage handicap load and it shoots like a factory 1oz. gun club shell but softer recoil.

I load 19.8 grains of Green Dot, 1 1/8oz of reclaimed, with a Fig 8 wad, rem hulls. I use this load for both 16s and Handi. Not bad on recoil.
