    Does anyone know what powder Winchester used in the
    original Silver handicap shells.

    What might be the closest?

    It was a blend unavailable to us, I was told by a Win rep that to use Super-Field at 1270 fps to get close. A real Silver Bullet, here, will do about 1277.

    I'd use Winchesters/hodgdons new SuperHandicap powder if you really want to use a ball. But many propellants out there will get you what you want.

    I looked up my old Chrno records, and the Silver Bullet averaged 1260fps, Which is what I still reload to, today for the 27 yard line. I always felt like a 700x load @ 1250 felt and was about the same as the WW SB.
