    I have been loading longshot and want to move to a faster burning powder. Any good powders for this? (2-3/4 win AA new style 20ga and WAA20 7/8oz)

    I have loaded 3/4 oz in the 20 for years. I have used 16 gr Univ Clays, but the same amount of Unique takes up more room in the hull. Use the Remmy or AA hull and the regular wad. If you are shooting Skeet, you will not notice a difference in breaks.

    I cannot say that it will operate an auto loader.

    Universal Clays works good.

    I am trying international right now I have loaded some 3/4oz with the WAA20 wads and they just leave too much room in the hull. I upped it to lil over 13/16oz and all is well with 13gr I have crony'd em at around a 1140fps average. Nice cleen bore very low recoil.
