Been loading AA hulls with the Remington wads Win 209 primers 14.5 grs WW 296 and any size shot 1/2 oz for last 25 years with great results. Never found a better load--unless you want to pop for new shells. The Super Sport Winchesters can't be beat! Phil

Weigh your shot charge, most important. up to but no more than 10% is legal. I use 2400 , rem wad , win primer in Rem hulls. Straight Win components and 296in the AA. Jeff

Nice big write up in this months Skeet Review by Ballistician Tom Ceretto on Why not to use 50 year old WC-820 backed up by the powder manufacturers and the military. Like the old "magic" powder, war surplus junk. Jeff

I use 12.7 grains lil gun, Fiocchi 616 primers and Claybuster AAHS wads in my AA and Remington hulls. Have used it for several years but have considered buying some 410 or 296 powder as Lil gun is pretty dirty for me. Jackie B.

flip I have never used Alliant 410 but I loaded a lot of Lil'Gun with Rem 209p primers I like the Orange PC wads I always seem to have plenty of room in the shells with them. 12.5 grains of Lil'Gun in AA(the old style as I won't load HS hulls in any gauge.

Almost the same load in STS hulls except 13.3 Grains of Lil'Gun and a lot less pressure. I will say that Lil'Gun is pretty dirty but I swab out my tubes every time I use them any way so it doesn't matter.

I also like the orange PC wad. It will work in the old and new Win AA's and the Rem STS's as well. For the powder there is nothing better than Hodgdons H110 which is the same as Win. 296, for a few cents less. Win. primers are my choice for all three. You will need to check the powder drops as they vary for all three hulls. I have loaded and shot all three of these loads, and find they are very good. I need #10 (Mec's) bushing for old style hull, #ll bushing for the STS hull. and the #12 bushing for the HS hull. Drops are on Hodgdons website. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

I have been loading Winchester AAHS hulls due to case life. I have been using alliant 410 since it came out for skeet. My load is AAHS 2 1/2 hull, winchester 209 primer, 11.9 gr alliant 410, Winchester WW41HS wad and 1/2 oz #8. Chrono average 1228fps from 28" Skeet choke barrel Winchester model 42. So far, have not had any of the bloopers that I had with other loads. For what it's worth it patterns as good as factory AA skeet loads. Bill

Loading H110, STS Hulls, REM Replacement Wads, and REM Primers. To build a consitent effective .410 load you need to weigh the shot charge. Most MEC Bars do not throw enough shot.

Also should weigh your shot between bags and brand I have seen significant differences.

WAA HS Hulls

Win209 Primer

Remington SP410 wad

1/2 ounce of shot

13.3 grains of Hodgdon Lil' Gun

Some folks prefer H110.

This isn't too original but its the one that works for me;

2 1/2" WW HS hull
HS wad
14.8 g H110 or WW296 (same stuff)
F209A primer
1/2 Oz # 81/2 or #9

Crimps great and case life is very good.

I tried Lil'Gun. Way too dirty and a bit on the loud side.

You cannot beat Winchester 296 (Hodgdon H110 is same powder and a bit less cost). I like the Remington SP-410 wad for old style and HS Winchester AA's. I use 14.2 grs. H110 in the old style (silver lettering) and 14.5 to 15.5 grs. in the HS hull. Nothing but Winchester 209 primers for me.

The old style compression molded AA's (silver lettering) have a little less internal volume so you may need to scale the shot charge back a bit to get good crimps.

shaner, like I said above downrange orange PC wad will work in all three. If you can't find those locally, Claybuster 5050 wad in 410 works the same way. It will work in all three as well. Old style and new style Win.AA's and STS's as well. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff
