12 guage 3/4 oz loads with WTS Powder


Marlin Buckhorn,SASS 51727

Recommended Posts

I know there are better powders and 7/8 oz of shot is light enough. But I have a bunch of WST powder and I am looking for a good performing load with 3/4 oz of shot with this powder.

 

If anybody can be of help with a specific load please send me a PM. I use AA hulls and Claybuster wads.

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

 

Marlin

Sorry, the manufacturer (Hodgdons) seems to think that Clays is the only one of their powders appropriate to the 3/4 ounce load. That is a very light load.

 

WST and one ounce of shot, now there is a good way to burn up that powder. If you want my favorite for that weight, drop me a PM.

 

Good luck, GJ

 

 

You can find a few loads for 7/8 ounce lead and WST on Hodgdons on-line loading data. What I see from that data, which only develops about 7500 psi and makes a load that has muzzle velocities ALL above 1300 FPS, is that you can't get to where you want (3/4 ounce light load) with WST - the powder is a little too slow. I'd predict that you would have erratic velocities and a fair amount of unburned powder if you tried WST on that shot weight.
