Default Red Dot 7/8oz Load?

A quick question about a 12 gauge 7/8oz. load. I was hoping to use RST hulls with Red Dot and the grey 7/8oz Claybuster CB0178-12 wad with Cheddite primers. Would 16 grains put me around 1150fps and in the 6000-7000psi range? Has anyone used a similar recipe?

I have loaded 3/4oz using the pink Claybuster 3/4oz wads with just under 15 grains of Red Dot(14.8). They shoot well though on close crossing shots I think the pattern is a little too tight or I am not leading them enough(or both...)

I wanted to try some 7/8oz. loads with the above recipe and wanted to make sure I was on the right track from a safety and performance standpoint.

I also have the Gualandi(TUWG2512) 12 Ga. Super G Wads 7/8 to 1 oz that I have not tried yet.

Thank you,
