I am interested in a good field load ( 1 1/16 - 1 1/8 oz ) with cheddite hull, 800x, and field commander z-16 wad. I see the bpi recipes on the yahoo group spreadsheet but wanted to see if you guys could confirm through personal experience that that data was accurate. Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice.
Ok, let me try again ...I can’t seem to pull up ANY 16 ga loads on Hodgdon’s site using their reloading data app when I select cheddite as my hull and 800x as my powder. Actually, universal is only powder option available on drop down menu. 🤷♂️ So does anyone have any experience with 800x, cheddite hulls and primers used with any wad not named SP-16 😀?

I had a little bit of testing done with the Cheddite 1628 wad & 800-X. With 23.0 grains of 800-X in a Federal hull with a CCI209 primer and 1 1/8 oz. of shot the pressure was 13,000 PSI. That exact load with a Remington SP-16 wad is right around 9,000 PSI and 1270 FPS.
I think I would take a good look at the loads that Bowbuilder has with Longshot. I believe those to be a better fit than 800-X with the 1628 wad.
