I think I know the answer but was hoping that someone has some additional data. I am getting a little low on powder for one ounce 12 gauge sporting loads (I typically use 700X). I have 8 pound of Unique that I use for 16 gauge loads and am investigating whether there is a source of data for one ounce 12 gauge loads using Unique. Thanks for any advice.

Unique tends to be better suited for 1.125oz & 1.25oz loads imho. One of my favorite powders to use for dove and quail loads.

Keep checking the reloading supplies web site: I was able to get 700x from Recob's also Hodgdon as had it for sale on their site too.

I have a similar problem. I have a bunch of Universal, but prefer 1 ounce loads. I may end up loading some dirty stuff just to get rid of it.

Willing to trade for Tightwad, Clays or 700x to anyone in the Atlanta area.

While Unique performs best with heavier payloads in 12g, you can always drop the payload from the recipe and replace with the appropriate wad. Pressure will go down, velocity will go up and you may have to clean your gun.

Since when does shot size matter :?: :roll: It's the weight----Unique is better suited for 1 1/8 os loads.

You should be able to trade it. Post it on some of the clubs in your area you frequent and don't forget to do so where pistol shooters can see it. Unique is a very useful powder not only for shotguns but handguns also.
