    Several years ago I had a chart of powder by volume. Somehow I have misplaced it. Does anyone have copy you could send me or post? jackieben at accessatc dot net. I am trying to decide what powder which has the least volume to use in 20 ga AA hulls. I have Green Dot, 20/28 and Universal Clays. Thanks for your help. Jackie B.

    Cut three hulls in half, put your powder drop in each hull, put wads on top of powder, which sample is the shortest?

    Steal one of your wifes measuring spoons.

    Weigh a tablespoon each of the powders you have. You want the heaviest one.

    Seems easy enough to me.

    Or you can use a cut off half way 20 gauge empty.

    I use GreenDot for my 3/4 oz loads in the 20 gauge, and I use Universal in my 3/4 oz loads in the 28 gauge. I haven't tried 20/28, but from the recipes I looked at, it uses about the same bushings as GreenDot for comparible FPS loads in the 20 gauge. I think Universal would take up the least space for the same performance. Let us know what you find out. Mark

    Look at the Hornady bushing chart. Pick a weight and see which powder uses the smallest bushing.

    Thanks for the responses. The chart was what I was looking for but does not list 20/28 for comparison. Jackie B.

    Here is a link to Claybuster's 3/4 oz wad data, that lists comparable loads for GreenDot and 20/28. see above. Mark

    Thanks for the chart keller.

    Is the WSF a typo?

    Find a current MEC bushing chart. They have all the powders listed, even 20/28.

    <blockquote><I>"Is the WSF a typo?"</I></blockquote>I don't know since it's not my chart but it certainly appears to be way out of spec with the rest of the powders.
