    Can't find any data for loading Win 471 Powder (Shotgun) I know it's heavy stuff, but that's what I need. Heavy coyote stuff. The can is old, but still sealed tight. Thanks

    You may want to just send that to me. Are you sure it's not 571? I would hate to think you were going to use that on coyotes. LOL. If it's 571 that is some of the best long range heavy load powders winchester ever produced and to this day i do not know why they quit making it. Good Luck, Tim

    If it is W571 you can call Hodgdon for some info, they sold it until the supply ran out. Most people say it's the same powder as Hodgdon HS-7. I would call. Click on the above link for some more info.

    571 was designed for 1-3/8 up of lead shot and HS7 is the same but I believe Hogdons have stopped making it also. Not as much call for heavy lead anymore. If you look in the Lyman's book you can find a couple of loads for 1-1/4. It's a very slow powder and takes a good primer to build a fire under it. I sometimes shoot it for game loads from the porch. Normally with 1-1/4 but some times I drop one in that gets everyones attention. The 1-1/2 will almost turn you side ways. LOL

    There's a Winchester reloading booklet on Ebay right now for $5...

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Winchester-Western-Ball-Powder-Loading-1977-Sporting-Arms-Rifle-Pistol-Reload-/250932702824?pt=Vintage_Hunting&hash=item3a6cc12e68


    Or, give us something more specific and maybe I can scan some data on here.

    I have an old Winchester recipe reloading book, 14th edition, 1994. The recipes call for the older hulls of that era. Winchester Compression-formed, Super X, Double A, Remington Peters RXP, Blue Magic, RTL. It looks like all require a minimum of 33grs. of 571 WW powder up to 38.5grs. This must burn at the same rate as cardboard. You will need to clean your gun after each shot. Probably similar to Black Powder.

    Let me know what hull, shot weight, you are looking for.

    Example: Winchester Double AA, Xpert, and Super X hull, WW 209 Primer, 36.5 grs. of 571 WW powder, Win. WAA12R wad, 1 1/2 oz. shot, gets 1260fps., at 10,300 LUP's.

    Remington Peters "Blue Magic" hull, WW 209 Primer, 38.5 grs. of WW 571 powder, Win. WAA12R wad, 1 3/8 oz. shot, gets 1330 fps., at 10,000 LUP's.

    Let me know what reloader you are using, for the correct bushing. Jon
