    Does anyone have a good load for 20GA Fiocchi hulls using PB powder? Having a hard time finding a load and locating the wads called for.

    That's pretty straightforward ... if you have the right wads - most of the American wads won't fit in a 2½" hull.

    With the Gualandi wads, you can make about what weight you want in a 2½". Grafs has the 'G-20' wads, and Precision Reloading has the cushioned gas-seal. For a double gun, I really like the cushioned GS.

    For PB drops and (nominal) 7/8oz load, use the Federal Hull data ... regardless of wad & primer, they are all 17.5gn ±½gn, and all are low pressure.

    I have no idea what BPI calls their 20ga Gulandi wads these days, but if you know what the 'G' looks like, it's pretty straightforward.

    I called Ballistic Products and they don't have any loads for the 2 1/2" shells using PB powder?
