Default Published 2 1/2 inch 3/4 oz 16 G data.

Suprised to find 3/4 oz data on Hodgdons web site must be new. Load is just about one I have used from the 16 G society spread sheet . Can recommend it as a soft shooting clays load to 30 yards. Just right for my 0 frame 0 Grade Parker Hammergun.

Cheddite 2 1/2 inch hull. 15.3 Grs Hodgdon International DR 16 wad. 5,700 lbs 1100 FPS. 15.9 grs 6,200 lbs 1150 FPS. No fillers.

Few changes from published in my loads, Win 209 primers, Closest bushing I have drops 15.5 grs. Weighing shot drops they are closer to 11/16 oz than 3/4.

Hull fills nice, crimps beautifully on a Mec 600 with the shortmkit. I use Ballistic products brass pre crimp head, Mec spin pre-crimper wants to smash some thin cheddite hulls. Never loose one with the brass head.

Thanks for the data. I'm making the transition to 2 1/2" 16 gauge reloading, so your data is congruent with my current supplies. (DR-16's, Int. Clays, Cheditte hulls).

I also have a ton of the 7/8 oz. Claybuster wads, and hopefully I can find a good load for those.

I was thinking about sending some shells loaded from the 16 G spread sheet off for testing when I blundered onto the Hodgdon data. Like you am going to stick with 3/4 2 1/2 inch. I could use a heavier load in my Trojan 16, but what’s the point when 3/4 does all I need.

7/8 has always given me trouble in cheddites. They crimp 1 oz better. Puts me into fillers that are less than ideal.

I think, but not sure, you could just sub in the CBer wad. They many times have lower pressure than the DR wad. At least at these pressures there shouldn't be a worry.

Nick Sisley loaded and tested Cheddite 2 1/2 using Universal, International, and now extinct PB and 7625 using Dr 16 3/4 loads and BP 16 7/8 loads of 8 shot posted in Skeet Shooting some time ago. These are the same as lisited on the Hogdon's site. He also loaded 20/28 with the BP 16 7/8 but I can't find the specifics. I think 15 grains 20/28 in the DR 16 w/3/4 loads. I,ll keep searching.

Would you happen to know how many grains of PB was used for the 3/4 and 7/8 oz. loads. I still have some PB left that I haven't tried for a 16 gauge. My old Dupont manual has some high velocity loads at around 1300 fps and 10500 psi that use 24 gr. I do not want to try anything that hot, and was thinking of using around 16 to 18 grains for a 7/8 oz. load.
