    Does anyone know the difference between the Winchester Super Handicap Loads and the Winchester Heavy Target Loads? The heavy target loads are 3 drams and the Super Handicaps are 1250 fps. Are they similar shells that maybe differ in speed? I thought the Super Handicaps were 3 drams too, Just wondering what the difference is.... Thanks Richie

    We took some home from the Grand about 8 years ago that we thought were very good(all 7 1/2's). After getting an average speed on the handicap loads which was about 1260 with lots of hotter ones. We shot 9 of the red heavys before we found one that looked like a normal 1200 fps. 3 dram load. They were almost all going as fast as the Silver Handicap load. That was probably why we thought they were great.

    Richie- I shoot a lot of the AA Super Handicap loads. They are definitely hotter than the 3 dram AA shells. When I do shoot the Heavy Target AA shells from the 27, I realize that I do not need to use the Super Handicap loads. But, when I buy shells, the Super Handicap are the same price as the Heavy Target load and I can't get away from buying more for the same money. It is difficult to put more credit on logic than emotional appeal. I think I make the same mistake when I buy the Super Handicap shells as I made when I became involved with my first wife. Both my first wife and the Super Handicap shells put more stress on me than is required.
