    Can't find any data on loading STS hulls with American Select using Win 209's and DR-XL- 1-1/8 wads. All I find, use Rem primers. Is it safe to substitute the Rem.primers with the Win 209's (1145 fps load, 18gr.) J.Woolsey

    Pressure wise, you will be fine. You might drop 1/2 gr if you want the same speed.

    Am Sel is quirky in it's reaction to changes. It likes soft primers. For example, I shoot an STS hull, Am Sel, Fig-8 wad and 1 1/8oz shot all the time. Alliant data shows 19.0gr yields 1145fps @ 7600 PSI with an STS209 primer. Drop the powder to 18.5gr and substitute a W209 primer and the pressure jumps to 9000PSI.

    The DRXL-1 wad is equivalent (according to DRM and Alliant's new data) to a Win WT12 wad. That wad increases pressure from 7600PSI to 9000PSI with 0.5gr less powder, so I surly would not substitute both a W209 primer and the DRMXL-1 wad without calling Alliant and asking what they think. I know their standard answer is always drop 0.5gr and see what happens, but in this particular instance, it might be different.
