The only difference between the two wads is hump in the CB 0175 3/4 and CB 0178 7/8. I loaded up 6 and seams to hold okay. Using win 209, gun club hull, 17.4 gr of Clays..

The Remington hulls have more volume, and I'm running low on the 7/8 wads... Anyone else done this???

Haven't done that but I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as you can get a good crimp. The CB-0175 is probably a few grains heavier (due to the hump) than the CB-0178 so the ejecta will be a little heavier, assuming the same shot load, but not significantly. I would just go with a 7/8 oz recipe for the CB-0178 and use the CB-0175 as long as it fits. Actually, I'd only use this approach as a stopgap and purchase some more 7/8 oz wads. :wink:

I have been able to go the other way too. I can use 1 1/8th oz wad for a 1 ounce load too. Don't know why you couldn't use a 1 oz wad for 7/8 oz load too if you have some laying around? Just have to try it and see if stuff fits. If I remember correctly Claybuster even says to do that somewhere in it's liturgy.

I load 3/4oz loads in a 12ga and they seem to break birds just as well as 7/8 or 1oz loads. Why not just load 3/4oz and save some money ?

3/4 oz out of a 12 gauge used here also. I've shot enough I'm on my third bag of CB wads.

BINGO! After ~ 18,000 of them, I like them. Also, after that many, the amount of "free and extra" boxes of ammo over 7/8 or 1oz loads has been awesome.

I shoot 3/4 oz of 8 1/2s for skeet, and went over to shoot a round of 5 Stand. That was the only ammo I had brought, so I gave it a try. I have new respect for the capabilities of my 12 gauge 3/4 oz load.

It's not a value of money, but recoil. At a set of average 150, big difference between weights. My main practice is on a skeet field, backing up 40-50 yards. 3/4 does a good job, but on longer shots 7/8 takes over. I reload all with 7 1/2 shot, no need for 8's, 8 1/2's, for 7 1/2's does the job. It is amazing how far out 3/4 will reach....

3/4 will reach as far as 1-1/8, just won't have as wide a pattern, but the core should be almost as good.

Another thing to consider is that a 7/8 oz. bar probably isn't giving you a true 7/8 oz drop most bars throw on the light side of a marked weight.

It has a lot of value. With 3/4 and Mod on skeet field pad, gives you direction where hitting the target. You don't have to be much behind or in front to miss a target. Sometimes I'm missing, then figure out to far in front. Shooting registered clays, I shoot all 1oz, and generally LM.

As said, the 3/4oz will reach like any other load. I shoot all the games with 3/4oz and LM chokes and break birds out just as far as my flinching buddy shooting high speed 1 1/8oz shells. Confidence is a big part of the game and if someone is confident in their ammo then keep on shooting it. That way you won't be blaming the ammo if you miss one. Paul

I think that 3/4 oz loads work better in a 12 than in either the 20 or 28. But that is just unscientific emotion without testing other than flying target results.

Just don't go over to that other forum for trapshooters and make such an obscene statement as they will be sure to call for your banishment and quickly too!

My understanding is that the 'Ballistic Theory' of shorter shot-columns is that there is less of a shot string in the air. May be factual, may not be factual, but I do know 3/4-oz of #8-1/2 breaks targets at 35-yds or less. Recoil is minimal even when loaded to high velocity (1300 fps and up).

On longer shots, I personally move up to 1-1/32 oz of #7-1/2. Shot count is very close to equal between these two loads.
