    STS and Federal hulls are VERY different and require different amounts of powder. For and STS or AA hull try 19.7 or less of Green Dot, Windjammer wad/Spolar wad, 1 1/8 oz. of 7.5 shot, AA or Chedite primer. Try in your gun over a chronograph to check speed. Should be about 1,250 fps in a 32" or 34" barrel. Check your recipe books for a Federal [straight walled] hull. Fred

    Mash the link, click on Rio primer load data. Also check Alliant Powder web site for Green Dot. Wayne

    I load 21.7 grains of green dot and I get about 1235 with a figure 8 wad and a Fed gold medal plastic hull.
