What

I picked up 8LB jug of Red Dot and have never used it before. I know how to find what loads it will do but I wondered what your favorite load was. I use primarily AA hulls. Jackie B.

Sixteen or seventeen grains with factory components. The lighter ones with Federal 209A primers, the heavier with Winchester primers. That's for 1 1/8 oz. With the Federal primers they go off in any weather and we are getting -18 F by the end of the week.

18 gr with 1 oz, 20 gr with 7/8 oz Bunker loads.

Am experimenting with 18 gr and 3/4 oz, using tighter chokes for sporting clays.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I will pick a couple and try them out but first I have to check what wads I have. LOL I have a couple of them at least, like waa12 and several Claybuster wads. I think I will try 17gr and 18.5 gr. Again thanks for your responses. Jackie B.
