    I recently was given a can of Winchester 540 powder. A couple of people told me it is a good powder for loading 28 gauge skeet loads 3/4 ounce. Since I can't find data for it anywhere, since they don't make it anymore, does anyone have a recipe from back in the day? Thanks, Paul.

    Clyde,s book sats the same as mine. the only thing I would add is with a Federal 209A primer you use 15.5 with same other components,for same results, except it builds 11,300 PSI of chamber pressure, which would be too high with 17.5 grs.
