Powder to Replicate Winchester Heavy Target?

1982 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  waverider
Looking at Winchester's website they recommend WST as the powder to replicate their 3 dram 1 1/8th oz load. Anyone using WST for this purpose and have any thoughts or adive to offer? I want to get as close the factory load as possible with my reloads for practice, and will use factory ammo come competition time.

Thanks,

Michael

Michael,

I use to do that. Started off with all Win components and followed Win data for the ballistic equivalent loads for their 2 3/4 Dram Eq. and 3 Dram Eq. 1 1/8 oz loads.

8 years ago, I found a cheaper and more convient source of Hodgdon Int'l powder. So I started using Hodgdon Int'l for my 1 1/8 oz 3 Dram Eq. loads. For my 16 yard and 1st shot doubles practice load I went to 1 oz #8 at 1145 f/s and Clays powder. I now shoot Remington STS factory 2 3/4 Dram Eq. 1 1/8 oz #8 for 16 yard singles and 3 Dram Eq. 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2 for caps when there is a trophy or money on the table.
