Wondering if anyone would share their favorite 1,300 fps 20 ga load ?I always use WW primers and either AA or STS hulls with clay buster wads. Just curious about powder type and weight.
Thanks in advance

I load 3/4 oz in 20 gauge, and use Green Dot. Not sure what the exact speed is, but it reaches out and breaks targets. I use #8 1/2s.

7/8 ounce?

I don't load that fast, but on Hodgdon's web site, looks like you are limited to Winchester 572 and Hodgdon Longshot.

I never saw a need for 1300fps in the 20 gauge. Alliant 2028 @ 16.5 is 1250 and plenty fast for hunting and sporting. When I can shoot reloads in Subgauge events I shoot the 2028 @ 1200 fps reloads with AA components.
