It's a fast powder for 12 gauge loads up to 1 1/8 ounces. You might find a load faster than 1200 fps, but 1200 and under is what 700X is designed for.

Thanks, Bill. I'm passing on my guns. Never imagined there would be an issue for new owners of prudent pressures for classic hardware-store guns. I started shooting in a subsistence fishing village nearly 80 years ago where 1 1/8 under 1200 was no handicap, from "tubs" anchored at sea and from rock blinds in harbours.

Ed, why would you say that?, reloading is a very satisfying hobby just by itself, you can tailor your loads to pretty much whatever pressure you like, for psi & speed & shot weight (recoil)..& you can send some to tom ambrust (sic?) for pressure testing if you don't trust the data... it's very satisfying to punch out a few boxes of nicely put together cartridges....but for a guy of your mental ability, sure, best to buy your shells from the store
cheers

We shoot trap, skeet and 5 stand at night under lights at my club. I found that 700x makes an annoying smoke at night shooting and prefer Red Dot or Promo over it for that reason. It may not matter much shooting trap singles but it can trick you up on the low house station 2 doubles and some shots at 5 stand. Other than that I do like it for day shooting and consume a fare amount of it. I believe it burns clean enough, maybe not up to Clays or Solo 1000 standard but plenty good for it's price.
