Is there any data for using Promo in 20ga 3/4, 13/16, 7/8 oz loads ? I have 5000 win 209 primers, 8 lbs Promo, 5000 Claybuster CB1078 wads. I have remington STS and AAhs hulls. I will use these reloads in a Browning CXS combo (12 and 20 barrels) O/U for skeet & sporting clays.

20 ga shells seem to be hard to find right now, so I am looking at reloading again.

Data? Well.....maybe, kinda, sorta. It depends on what your consider "data". If you mean a published loads by Alliant, then NO. Dunno about Lyman, but I'd guess no.

If you need to load 20 gauge, you should be looking for a different powder. Hodgdon Universal and Alliant 20/28 are favorites with many.

If you need to load Promo, be looking for 12 gauge loads with your hulls and primers. There are loads at Alliant's website for 12 gauge Promo loads in 7/8 ounce to 1 1/8 ounce. Pick a weight or two and buy the right wad for those loads.

Promo is inappropriate for 20 gauge.

Yep, both Promo and Red dot have too fast of a burn rate to use it for 20 gauge loads.

Green dot, which is a slightly slower burning powder that the above, does have some light loads for 20 gauge, but I would never run them through a 20 gauge tube set due to the slightly higher work pressures than say unique or universal powder that has a slower burn rates that puts the working load of a 20-7/8oz load around 10K working pressure isntead.

If you’re looking to save money you have the right combinations you can load a three-quarter and or a 78 ounce load for your 12 gauge and break targets as far as you want on any sporting clays course
