The load you listed is straight out of the Alliant Powder Reloaders' Guide, 2004 edition, page 15, or off their website. As you noted that recipe called for the WAA12SL (pink) wad in conjunction with the Remington 109P (STS) primer.

Now the first thing I'm wondering about is why you picked up a bag of clone Windjammer II wads (CB4118-12B?).

Regardless of that, though, there is no reason not to use your load with either Winchester 209 or Remington 209P primers. With 1 ounce loads, you are going to be around 10,000 psi with either primer assuming you are using the WAA12SL wad or a clone of it. That Windjammer-type wad, though, is very likely going to reduce your pressure down to somewhere around 7,000 psi and give you a velocity of something less than 1180 fps.

It is from the wedsite, but it says to use the Rem. 209P primer, is this the same as the STS primer?

Thanks

I made a typo by typing 109. It is, of course, 209. The Remington primer is designated 209 (for size) and P for Premier. The STS stands fro skeet-trap-sporting clays. So the full designation of Remington's current primer is 209 Premier Skeet-Trap-Sporting Clays (209PSTS), which no one ever uses. Most of us simply refer to it as the STS primer.
