    Bill, RST is a Cheddite hull, so any FGM data you like will work.

    In my 2½" and 2" Damascus game guns (and I'm guessing you're thinking of shooting your OLD SxS, yes?), I like 17gn of Bullseye, 22+gn of PB, or 28gn+ of 7625, and I usually go 'old style' - cupless.

    Sometimes I will use fiber and cardboard, but these are a lot better. If you want to make pretty, modern, cupped loads, PR has all sizes of Gualandi wads if you don't like 1oz or 15/16 in a F12S3.

    Regardless, you need to use a F209A primer to build your fire.

    I have no idea what any of the pressures might be, but with 24gm and any of those powders, recycling a new auto is 'iffy.'

    Bob
