Hi Guys....been a long time.

Curious of where I could get info on other loads (lighter) than the ones posted in Hodgdon's manual? Mainly for shooting skeet.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

1) Do a search herein -- this has been a hot & perennial topic!

2) From the H'don site -- the youth loads page requires a little hunting around -- down at the botom of the Loads page, IIRC.

For Rem hulls:

For Win hulls:

3) Also, a fellow shooter sent this to me some time back. They work for me:

3/4 oz 12 ga loads

From: http://www.mynssa.com/ssr/01reloading.pdf

Case: 12 Ga. Rem. Premier
Primer: Win. 209
Powder: 16.4 gr. Hodgdon Clays
Wad: Fed. 12S0
Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
1,200 fps @ 6,400 psi

Case: 12 Ga. Rem. Premier
Primer: Win. 209
Powder: 17.3 gr. Hodgdon Clays
Wad: Fed. 12S0
Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
1,250 fps @ 7,000 psi

Case: 12 Ga. Rem. Premier
Primer: Win. 209
Powder: 18.1 gr. Hodgdon Clays
Wad: Fed. 12S0
Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
1,300 fps @ 7,600 psi

Case: 12 Ga. Win. AA
Primer: Win. 209
Powder: 16.6 gr. Hodgdon Clays
Wad: Fed. 12S0
Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
1,200 fps @ 6,200 psi

Case: 12 Ga. Win. AA
Primer: Win. 209
Powder: 17.8 gr. Hodgdon Clays
Wad: Fed. 12S0
Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
1,250 fps @ 6,800 psi

Any load at or near 7,000 psi should cycle a clean gas gun. I think Winchester WAA12L (grey) wads should make a good wad column in the above cases.

I have not tried loading with WAA12L wads but, I believe list-member has, with great results.

4) Here's another load info a second shooter sent me for the 3/4oz:

>Case: 12 Ga. Rem. Premier

>Powder: 17.2 gr. Hodgdon Clays
>Wad: Win Gray
>Shot: 3/4 oz. lead
>1,225 fps @????? psi?????

>I have bags of the Gray wads (Win and CB) and I'm hoping to have time to work up a box or two.

Good luck, let us know how the boys (and the barrels) like 'em!
