    . . .or higher. Some I've tested have been close to heavy target loads from the same manufacturer. In fact, I've been using two different lot numbers, differing by 50 fps, to test if people can tell the difference between loads with that sort of average difference in speed. One (so far) can ; most can't.

    That's surprising that there's that variation in velocity. I like the Win Light Target Load with 1-1/8oz of shot and want to replicate it with my reloads.

    I shoot several flats of AA light target loads every year. The ones I have tested ranged from 1139 to 1181 ft/sec (four different lots tested). I have seen up to a 23 ft/sec variation in the same lot.

    I like the shell for singles and the second shot of doubles.

    JL: I think Winchester uses Winchester WST powder in the AA Lights. I use it at 19 grains with Win primers/wads/hulls. Great all around load..16-27 yds and both shots of doubles. Makes things very simple...same load for all! Walt

    Walt- I have shot them from the 27 and they did work fine. Occasionally, when loading my shells into the car for a 5 day shoot, I get mixed up and end up with too many singles loads and not enough handicap loads. I shoot what I have. Even though the lighter loads seem to work from the 27, and they do have less recoil, I just can't mentally get away form the Winchester Super
    Handicap shells. I am very glad that I have A PFS.

    Larry- I now use a Crhony alpha at the club. When I want really good data, I use an induction chronograph at the Alliant Plant. I like the color (red) of the Chrony alpha.

    I ran some of the VERY light and NOISE reduced Light AA shells through my chronograph at the range and got under 1,100 ft./sec. About 1,050 as I remember. Just too slow for me, but quiet. Fred
