I am trying to work up a handicap load for my son. I am looking at International clays in a Nitro/STS hull with a TGT12 wad Fio 616 primer looking for about 1235 with about 9000 pressure. Does this sound good?

You may need to sub a Fig 8 wad for the TGT 12 to get everything in. I load 20.7 for 1235 with a CCI primer and with the fig 8 it is a good fit. HOWEVER this load and most others using International Clays will be running 10,100+ psi for any load over 1200 fps. When I tried to use the TGT12 I usually ended up with a slight bulge in the crimp.

i would recommend international clays over any other handicap powder out there. I have loaded it for several years and I have a ton of various loads that work really well from any where. my favorite is 21.5 grains in a gold medal, windjammer wad, 1 1/8, and a fio 616 primer. I shoot alot of protection programs and I have found that this load works well as a call or backup shell from the 27 yard line. hope I could help aj

Beretta Young Gun - Yes, International Clays is a good handicap load powder. It is almost as good as Green Dot.

gasman03 – I have shot quite a bit of International for handicap loads and it works fine --- I used Clays for 1 ounce 16 yard loads and first shot at doubles and International for 27 yard loads and second shot at doubles……Then I discovered what a lot of people already knew – Green Dot. I have found that Green Dot is a little easier on the shoulder and very hard on targets. My 1 1/8 ounce #7 ½ loads run about 1180 pfs and work very well….Personally – I prefer Green Dot over International

Dr. Trap,

Would you post your load recipe? Sounds interesting. Looks like green dot makes substantially less pressure than Int'l clays according to the loading info.

Thanks in advance

Tim F242 - I used Win AA hulls (new type) - Win 209 primers - my #32 MEC bushing will drop between 18.7 and 18.9 grains of Green Dot. Generally use Winchester Orange wads - 1 1/8 mag #7 1/2 shot --- Some people consider this a light load - but it gets the job done and is a pleasure to shoot -
