    Just inherited bags of Federal Champion II hulls. Can't find a recipe!
    Does anyone remember reloading these?? They're all 1st fires, & I'd hate
    to toss them for lack of loading data. I'd prefer using Alliant powders,
    if possible. HELP........

    I have some old Hercules/Alliant data in the basement.
    I will try to e-mail it to you later.

    These shells will require special wads, they have low volume. I loaded them with 700 x, about 17.5 grains and they would not stay closed in the summer. Might work with a 1 oz wad. They were nice shells when new but the loading problems made me quit using them.

    Because of the thicker walls, I think that we used a 12 C-3 wad, It was likethe 12 C-1 only it had a black base rather than a red one.
