I like 700x I have claybuster pink 1oz wads and gray 7/8 win primers was thinking of using gun club hulls load once and throw. I did load some in AAs gray wad had just more wad pressure crimps were good FPS was a little slow 1286 can't remember how many grains any body else using this combo.
thanks Bob

Well I loaded and tested some last night 18.5 grains 700x 7/8oz gray claybuster wads I used them in place of the WAA12sl better crimp more wad presser under 30 Win primers 7/8os of 7.5 shot speeds were way to fast 1355 1360 1351 switched primers Noble 209s speeds dropped to 1320 1324 1330 going with this for now felt recoil was good pattern was tite and even. My son going to try two boxes on sporting clays tomorrow.
Thanks to every one who replied Bob

Why not just knock the powder charge down to a little over 18 grains instead of messing with primers and other components. The really weird thing is that you didn't tell us how fast you want your shot to go.

Does anyone have problems with 700x bridging in their drop tube? I live in South Texas with lots of rain recently and high humidity. I have had several no charge or very light charges lately.
