    Would like and info regarding reloading 20ga. I have visited the Alliant and Hogdon site and will try Unique and 20/28 powder.
    Will use AA and Gun Club hulls with Win 209 and Rem 209 primers
    The largest variable is the wads? Win, Rem, CB, Down Range? Any thoughts?

    If you are planning on using all kinds of different hulls then go with Downrange and Rem RXP. Then you can load them all the same with no problems.

    I found Unique to be a very stable powder for 20 ga. The velocity spread was only about 15 FPS when I tested. I use Universal now because it can serve in the 28 also. If I was only loading 20 I would still use Unique.
