    Recommend me powder (s) for 12g and 20g

    Any favourites for a 12g powder using fibre wads pushing 24 - 28gram loads

    And

    Any favourites for a 20g powder using fibre wads pushing 21 - 28gram loads

    And, is there one powder that will do both yet? (I'm expecting the answer is probably no!)

    Thanks for your thoughts

    Talk to John at Folkestone Engineering Supplies, he's got a lot of info on loading for shotguns and also check out their web site. FES can also supply wads, cases, primers, etc if needed.

    Have a look on feskent and gualandi website.
    They don't list Csb5 for 20g but do list csb3 for 12 and 20

    Will cost you more to reload clay loads ??? Better off buying them for the time & price ?

    Red dot will do both of these loads also easy to find data

    Just find suitable recipes for either gauge and buy the correct components for it. Trying to find a do it all all powder is a bad idea.

    You will struggle to get a decent 24g load in 20gauge with AS. Good for 21gram loads in 20g and 28-30g in 12g. I've proofed that powder a lot.

    Have a look at reloading data for "Unique" it seems to be a versatile powder.

    I am thinking of loading 1-1/8oz over fibre wads. It seems similar to the old Nobel 80 powder.

    I've found some good data for Lovex SO30 that covers both 12 and 20. However finding it stocked is a bit of a challenge!

    You going about it arse about face. Find recipes for exactly what you want to shoot then buy the components to suit. Slow powders in 12g will be fast in 20 so you end up at extremes. Just buy 2 powders.
