I have a 3/4 & a 7/8 oz. load

3/4oz.

Cheddite 2 3/4" green hull
Winchester 209 primer
18.0 Grains American Select
DR-16 wad
3/4 oz. lead shot
1,339 FPS 9,480 PSI

7/8 oz.

Cheddite 2 3/4" green hull
Winchester 209 primer
23.0 Grains Universal
DR-16 wad
7/8 oz. lead shot
1,424 FPS 11,180 PSI

You can reduce both loads by 2.0 grains of powder and still have a reliable load.

The 7/8 oz. load will definitely cycle the new Browning A5. It cycles the original A5 Sweet with no issues.

Tom Armbrust did the testing on both loads.

Is there any difference between the green cheddite hull and the purple Herters cheddite hull?
Thanks
