    I'm looking for the Yellow 1969 Winchester loading book. I'm trying to find information on the Winchester old style ball powders. 450LS,500HS etc.

    Thank you,

    I'm looking for target loads using the old ball powders,450LS and 500HS. It says in the front of my 73 book to use the data from the Yellow covered 1969 book?

    If you have a couple of loads(from any book) using these powders, I would appreciate them.

    I have several books from that era. What would you like to know? I would be willing to copy pages and mail them to you. Do you have lots of those powders? Be a little more specific and send me a PM.

    Sorry, I'm looking for shotgun target loads. 1-1/8 loads, for any cases with any wads.

    Lyman first edition has those powders but no modern wads, of course.

    Lyman's First Edition has one load listed for Low Brass W-W paper hulls and AA12R wad.

    There was a general charge weight rule-of-thumb back then for going from paper hulls to plastic hulls, but the reloading Gestapo would be investigating if I told you.

    Thank you, all that have responded.

    I didn't specify what wads and cases because I knew they would be old and probably some stuff some of you had never heard of. There are some benefits to being old and a hoarder.LOL. I have the old stuff to load them with. All the way from Remington cases with size 57 primers in them to card over powder wads to Felten Blustreaks.

    I was there when some companies made the switch from Paper to Plastic cases and know about the reduction in powder.

    I do get funny look when I dump Alcan or Canuck/CIL cases out when shooting doubles.

    Thank you again,
    Ajax
