    I was told by email from a website query at the RIO site to use Fiocchi data. I saved the email, but it's on my work computer.

    What companents do you have? WAA28 wad, Unique powder and Nobel Sport or Rio primer will work. I use 14 gr Unique and Rio primers. One can use Universal Clays, but Unique takes up a litle more room in these voluminous hulls. It seems I get better performance in my 20 and 28 skeetie muffin loads with Unique. LOL

    As hard as 28 hulls are to get, I load EVERYTHING. I have a 5 gallon bucket of Wolf hulls that a fellow at the club gave me. I AM going to load these little devils. My Briley Revolution tubes will digest them. They are greedy, and eat anything I put in them. ;^)

    Gordie called me a Skeetie Muffin. I miss him. I took that as a compliment. I have been called worse, from three different wives. (I am a slow learner)

    Thanks for the info guys. I have WAA28 and its Claybuster equivalent wads and Unique powder. I'll have to get Rio primers; presently have W209s and Fiocchi 616s.

    We are not offering reloading wads for 28ga at this time. You can use info for 28ga. Fiochhi hulls as they are the same basic volume. Wish I could be more help.

    Check the Hodgdon data books or their website for loads.
