    I've got a ton of Top Gun hulls and want to reload them once, then discard. Can I use Federal Gold Medal reloading data for them or what loads should I use? These hulls do have a paper base wad that the GM's don't have. HELP.

    Use Gold Medal data. With the paper basewad, recoil is very nice. Check for published data. I suggest.....

    17.1-17.3 of Clays, Fed209, 12S3 or 17.5 700X, Fed209 and 12S3.(Both are 1145fps)

    Shoot Well,

    Jim

    Weigh your powder charges. Use only listed and verified loads. Do not substitute components. Never use a load that somebody puts up on a website. Do not use, load or attempt to load the above. These loads are for my use only.
