    How fast do you want to go? What hull? And how much pressure are you comfortable with?
    I currently load Blue Dot in Gold Medals @1300 keeping psi about 10K.

    4756 will get you to 1325 in a Federal hull, but you need a short wad like the old AA red or the RP12 or SP12 Remington.

    7625 works too but not quite as much speed available.

    I preferred 1 & 1/4 oz loads with 7625, man did they kill ducks.

    See Hodgdon's website.

    PS: 800X will do it too.

    If you lived close by I would sell you some 571. I have not use it since steel shot became law. Man that makes me sound old. Good Shooting If I was you I would look into Longshot from Hodgen.

    A lot depends on hull that your using. If its the popular one using an AA case most powders will be to bulky. Longshot should work however. My favorite is 4756 but its a tight fit in a AA and more suited for a GM.

    Yes, Longshot will do the job for you. Have loaded a lot of 1 3/8 oz # 6 shot for Annnie shoot offs.

    Consider the larger volume of the Federal hull, Smaller volumes will reach max pressures sooner.

    I use 800X in a Federal Field hull, F209A primer, and a RP12 wad for my 1 3/8oz #7 tall timber squirrel loads. Kills on both ends. 800X has big flakes and is a bit tricky to get consistent powder drops.

    Blue Dot or a powder that shows a similar burning rate on the chart.

    Hard to beat Blue Dot!

    Consistent powder drops and will power those loads that tend to be lethal at both ends!
