    I loaded up a real buddy back up killer load in the Top Gun and they worked beautifully Sunday January 1st buddy shoot.

    Fed Top Gun Hull, Orange AA Wad, 28 grains 800-X, Rio Primer, 525 grs of #6 shot a little over 8,000psi and soft shooting, BUT A TARGET SMOKING LOAD.

    You were close longshit! Wrong primer, wrong powder, wrong amount of shot and of course, wrong fps! Tom Rhoads P.S. At least you got the right hull!

    Jim,
    It will be closer to 21.5 gr of Green Dot to get 1200 .... when using a Win primer.

    Jim, did you go to the Alliant website and look at their Reloader's Guide?

    The data from the link above shows 21 gr. Green Dot with a Fed 209A and 12S3 in a Top Gun hull.

    Every time I have inquired at Alliant about substituting a Win209 for Fed209A in a specific load the answer has been increase the powder charge by 1/2 gr.

    So bluskyshooter's number should be right on the mark.
