    A friend of mine has some Winchester 548 from long ago. He wanted to know where he could find reloading data on it. I haven't been able to find any so far. Is there anyone out there that could tell me where I could go to get this information?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Do you mean 540? It is the same as HS-6. 548 on the other hand is a liberal retard. Jeff

    Bigbore613,

    You are probably correct. My friend may have got the number wrong.

    540 is especially well suited for 28ga skeet loads

    WW748 is a good powder for 5.56 and 7.62.

    My Winchester book from 1985 only shows 540, 748, 452AA, 571, 296, and 231. I have an older book from 1970 that shows the older powder numbers such as 450LS, 500HS and 540MS.

    I just did a Google search and found this from ts.com:

    I will keep working at it.
