    Use the same data as the Federal Gold Medal hulls.

    You can use the Gold Medal information but they actually do have loads for the paper base wad cases.

    I am loading Top Gun hulls for 1 oz. loads using the claybuster-12S0 Federal equivalent, 18.2 grains of Promo powder, and Federal 209A primers. Just started loading them and so far I like it.
