I have heard of a lot of people loading 3/4 oz. loads in 12 gauge but I cannot find any published recipe's on alliant's website. I checked green dot, red dot, and promo. where are people finding the published data for this load? Or are they using a different powder company? Thank you in advance for any input. Joe

If you buy a bag of the claybuster 3/4 ounce wads the load data is included. I use promo. Very soft and effective. Good luck, Tim

Take a look at the load data for international trap/skeet, the payload is a little less than 7/8 oz and a bit more than 3/4 oz. Joe B.

I loaded some 3/4 oz with 14 gr. of promo. Really lite and very slow! I have some loaded with 16 gr. of promo but haven't had the chance to try them.

I'm at 17.4 gr. Promo but can't point you to any data to back it up. GC hulls, DR 7/8 oz. wads, W209 primers, and of course reclaimed shot. Completely adequate even back from the fence.

Anywhere from 16 to 20+ grains. How fast do you want to go? Faster is better with this payload, and also to keep pressures to a consistent level.

I load from 17 to 19 gr of Promo on straight wall hulls with both 3/4 and 7/8 ounce. Snappy little loads, I like 'em. Just be sure to load it grain for grain if using Red Dot data, just a bit denser than RD as stated above. It is the next in speed right below RD on the chart. I like TiteWad far better, but I have way more Promo than TiteWad right now.

Rick Barker,
I checked your link and it shows using extra-lite, but also shows using a 7/8 oz wad. I don't know if that is a misprint or? I'm confused, I would like to see a published recipe using promo since I have 8 lbs of it but I don't want to get the crap kicked out of me. I shot a round a couple weeks ago using factory 1 1/8 oz loads and had a nice bruise on my cheek to show for it.

Thanks, Joe

I looked at the load data and it calls for a Rem209P primer. I cannot find that primer in my area. I was wondering if you could use a Winchester 209 instead. Thanks Rick
