Feather light Shotgun load data

Recommended Posts

I have been using a fairly new powder by Alliant called Extra Lite.  I am about out of it and seem to be having trouble finding it.  What other recipes or powders are good to make feather light loads using AA hulls and silver claybuster 7/8 oz wads. 7/8oz of shot?

Hey Bob:
This is a good one.

Clays Superlite shotshell:
Worked this out with a Hodgdon's tech on the phone.
AA or Remington Hull
Win 209 Primer
13.9 grains Clays (MEC #25)
grey wad
7/8 ounce shot
Lighter than a featherlite shell
Knocks 'em down every time
--Dawg

This question comes up regularly, and there were a number of recipes listed here just a few weeks ago.  You might look for that.
