WST Load Data.

2646 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  USSR
Have some WST that at some point I would like to use for some 7/8 oz 16 yard trap loads in Remington or Winchester hulls. However, all I can find from the powder manufacturers is 7/8 oz load data at 1325fps and 1400fps. Yikes, I'm looking for about 1200fps. The 5th Edition Lyman Shotshell Reloading Handbook lists 19gr of WST in a Winchester hull with either a WW12SL or TGT-12 wad and a 20 gauge .125" card under the shot for about 1200fps. Anybody used this or something similar? Thanks.

What is wrong with 7/8 ounce at about 1325 fps? Using # 8.5 or # 8 shot makes a good shell for the first shot in doubles. 1350 fps is even better.

Hi Don, my 1oz load is
Rem. Gun club hull
Ched. Primer
19gr. Wst
SL wad (cb 1100 12)
1oz #8 shot
Loads and works great. I have to use a smaller bushing than listed in the chart to get the proper weight. .423 for 19gr, I think. Good luck
