Just got a 8 lb jug of solo1000 from a friend . Have never used it . Looks to be same class as my current Red dot . According to bushing charts it appears to be a denser powder. I am using Cb1118 wads and 17.6 grain Red dot now 1 1/8 oz shot in rem hull . Will I need to change wads to get proper crimp?

Scroll to pages 98 and 99, of the manual, and you'll find some data, for STS hulls with CB-1118 wads:

Not sure how old it is . Might be fairly old the phone # to western powders is not an 800# also received about 6lb of 700x in the old steel keg . So I am guessing it is quite old . Both powders smell fine . Looking forward to shooting this powders.

I have one 25 pounder left of the classic composition. It's all I shot for years. If I remember right its burn rate is somewhere around green dot. Be aware they changed the manufacturers and burn rates several times. If you call accurate I've found them very helpful. I'm sure they can help you out.

I don't remember exactly , but sometime before 2010, with some suppliers selling in stock supplies after. I used to buy it in a cardboard drum which contained 16.5 lbs of Solo 1000, still have a couple of empty ones in the garage.
