Im almost out of universal powder.I have loaded with this powder for quite of few years.
Using cheddite hulls 7/8 and 1oz with SG 16 wads.
Im thinking of trying Green Dot . If so what is your favorite Green Dot load with a Cheddite hull SG 16 wad?
Thanks

Woody, did you chrono that load? I'm looking for a 1150ish load in 21/2 in cheddite for doves and clays when I run out of PB. Was hoping to use GD and 7/8 oz #8 and SG 16 wad.

No I never cronod It. It is a nice mild load to shoot. It breaks clays on the skeet field very nice.

I got that load off the low pressure load page of 16 gauge group.

I'm a member of the 16 gauge group on Yahoo, I don't find a low pressure page? Or do you mean the 16 ga low pressure group, I'm not a member there.

I use 15 grns Green Dot with 7/8 oz of shot and the SG16 wad in Federal,Remington, and Cheddite hulls for all my target,dove,and rabbit loads. It's not near as anemic as you would think and actually does quite well at 16 yard trap. Recoil is mild but it is a bit dirty which is of no consequence to me because cleaning my guns is part of the game for me. Don't have any idea how fast it is. I actually use Green Dot in 12,16,and 20 gauge for everything but Bismuth and some heavier lead hunting loads.

Nope,2 3/4". I load on a 600 Mark 5 and after some tinkering I'm able to get very good (not perfect) crimps with Federal,Green Remington,Cheddite,and even Fios(my least favorite) with no adjustment changes.
