Where can I find some charts online for some good light target loads for a 12ga? Also...what amount of shot, powder, primer, and wads do the amounts become equal? I was looking into reloading 500 shells, but I would need 9100 grains, which is a little over a lb of powder and I would need 40lbs of shot. How many shells should I reload at a time I guess is my question.

I would like to help, but I have gotten behind on up-to-date target shell loading.....I have been involved more with hunting loads. However, I am sure some of the fellows here that are in to clay shooting can be a a real help.....how about, fellows! Best Regards, James

I use MEC reloading equipment and Hodgdon Clays powders and I mainly use the information from the Hodgdon site on the web. I am currently loading the following recipe for Skeet with great results:

Remington Premier STS hulls
Remington TGT 12 wads
17.9 gr Hodgdon Clays powder
1 oz #9 Magnum shot
Remington 209p primers
On a MEC 600jr reloader

This combination consistently gives me fairly low recoil with great breakage on the birds. Good luck and good shooting---AFG
