Fed hulls
Dr16
7/8 oz of 8 or 9
17.2 of solo 1250 ( yeah I know it isn't made any more. I bought 40 lbs just before they stopped production. You t 8 left.)
Unique.. don't member for sure but I think 16.8. maybe wrong.

I shoot the following:

Hull: Cheddite
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.

Hey John, instead of beans, why not use the CB0078-16 wad.

I likely will the next time that I purchase wads. I am using up about 1000 of the other wad. I have not found the CB0078 wad at any vendor that I have had access to.

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.
