I shoot the following:
Primer Cheddite 209
Powder: 14 g of 700x
Wad: Claybuster CB0100-16 (WA-16 clone)
Shot: 7/8 oz #8 lead + 3 pinto beans as filler to achieve a good crimp.
Now, realize that the CB0100 wad is the the one that I can get most easily. I have used the DR16 and the load seems weak with it. I am using 3 pinto beans as a filler and the load patterns and performs well for me.
I chronographed this load today. Average of 3 rounds was 1233 fps.
Was gifted a handful of these and yesterday loaded them in an RGL 7/8oz #8 Greendot load, everything fit perfectly + perfect crimp. Nice to not have to mess with fillers. Will be trying the load today for 16y trap.
