    Not a good idea. A mild target load may be safe enough, but why chance it? Double check good published reload data with any load you are trying. Good Luck

    In some situations, absolutely! For example, I just went from AA cases, solo 1000 with the same wad to STS cases and Accurate manual only called for an increase of .2 grn of powder using the same wad and primer. But, as Leo said, it only takes a minute to confirm via the manual. Tom Rhoads

    Winchester loads are almost always a little less than STS. I have never had a problem when using a AA load in a STS.

    They are not the same. Most loads are pretty close, but it's best to check the data for the exact components you are using. I have one load that can be used in either hull, but it will produce different pressures and slightly different velocities in the two hulls. There is enough data out there, that you should be able to find something for the hull you are using.

    I have foubd that one piece AAs and STS/Premier hulls are pretty much interchangeable for target recipe reloading...
