    This recipe came from Alliant reloading online. They do not show anything for Cheddite primers. I do not know if they are compatible with Winchester primers or not.

    You can contact them directly and they will help you.

    Forget the Red Dot and switch to Green Dot, that is a 27 yard handicap powder. Follow Neil Winston's advice Red Dot for singles and Green Dot for caps, along with hard # 7.5 shot. YMMV Scott

    Red Dot is not going to get you a handicap load (1235-1250 FPS) with any STS/NITRO hull & component combination. Try one of the many published loads with Green Dot, Win. Super-Handicap or Titegroup powder, etc. You can only get to 1200 FPS safely with Red Dot and STS/NITRO hulls. Go to the Alliant or Hodgdons sites and the loads are published and safe.
