I have some of the old AA 5/8" red wads left. Anyone know a load in AA or nitro or sst hulls that i can load with these? I have red dot and unique powder. Thanks in advance.

I don't know of any target loads for AA12R wads.
I used to load 1 3/8 ounce #5 lead for ducks with them.
I know some Cowboy Action shooters load black powder with these wads.
Trade them for wads that you can use.
That load took 4756 powder which you can't get any more. Great protection game load. Shot many of them in 70's.

I threw away a bag of those I found in the back of a cabinet. So old they had gotten brittle. Many moons ago they would make a great 1.25oz load over PB in a AACF hull for games.

Looking at an old Winchester data booklet, I see a 1 3/8 ounce load in RXP hulls using WW540, which is the same as HS-6.
1 1/8 target loads in Winchester data, are in Winchester paper hulls or polyformed paper basewad hulls.
My 1 3/8 duck loads used WW 571.
