    Good powder, look up the Nobel Sport website for load data.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    What wads should I be using plastic not fibre??

    Load data normally includes information on wads. Why not try the Clay and Game website they sell the powder and can also provide load data. http://claygame.co.uk/
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    plastic wads are easiest ,primer , measured dose of powder ,weighed load of shot compressed n crimped.fibre is more involved primer ,powder ,over powder card ,fibre wad,shot ,over shot card.crimp but farmers prefer them as they biogdegrade.go on u tube theres loads of vids how to do it.try also Shotgun World.com its also on pigeon watch.im still using nobel 80 for clays n pigeons and techn 4 for steel.but clay and game are very helpfull peeps lotsa free advice from them.alliant powder has loads on its website as does hogdons and most powder suppliers.if u want spares Folkeston eng supplies,SIARM italy or Henry Kranks ,Clay n Game all deliver .get a decent set of digital scales and if using lee powder measures still check your powder weight.just google grains to grams conversion as most loads are in grains cheers iain

    Vectan A1 is a cracking powder for lead loads in a 12 bore. Gamebore use it in their blue diamind loads. Couple it with a good wad, and the bellsheri and pellegri (sorry about spelling) case and itll do fine. I cant remember what weight I used to use but it was a great load. Clay and game had data.
