1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I believe Hogdon now sells that powder as their HS6....If you can locate an older Mec bushing chart you will find that win540 and hogdon hs6 meter the same.

    The duplicate of a 28 ga.AA target load (3/4 oz)requires 17.5 grains of 540 and a MEC #14 bushing should throw a 17.9 grain charge... This same data applies to the Hogdon HS6 powder

    If I recall correctly, Hodgdon quit making HS6 a couple of years ago. I'm sure there is some out there, but you'll have to do a little searching. I'd call Recobs or any of the other large powder retailers to find some.

    Hodgdens still has HS6 on their web-site. I bot HS6 last year. I believe some are confused with Winchester 540, since it was discontinued about 8 years ago.

    My mistake guys/gals. It was HS-7 that Hodgdon was phasing out. I hope I didn't create too much confusion.

    Gamaliel is still selling it. They are out of the 8 pound bottles, but have it in one pound bottles. Good Luck and Break-em all. JEff
