    Listening to a few guys talk reloading, heard them say they are reloading 20gauge remington gun club shells with 15grains of red dot powder? Now when I was researching reloading 20gauge I didnot see red dot on alliants web site for 20 gauge data?

    Many many years ago Green Dot NOT Red Dot had recipes for 20 gauge but no longer because of changes in Green Dot and the components for reloading. Never Ever use either powder for 20 ga because the pressures would be too high. These powders are made strictly for 12 gauge.

    I would politely ask them to consider using the new 28-20 Alliant powder.

    There is still current published data using green dot in the 20ga and the loads work fine in all my guns.

    I believe there once was a Red Dot load, but it bordered the high side on pressure so Hercules pulled it from the munual. I'll check my old manual when I get home.
