I sent off four Vectan AS 1-1/8 oz loads in Rem Gold Nitro hulls to have tested.

I made up two loads with 17.0 gr of Vectan AS powder with CB1118-12 wads, with 1-1/8 oz of #8 shot that was weighed. One of these loads had a Win 209 Primer and the other load had a Fiocchi 616 Primer.

The five loads with the Fiocchi 616 Primer averaged out to 1186 fps @ 9,608 psi. I liked this load!

The five loads with the Win 209 Primer averaged out to 1170 fps @ 11,090 psi.

I wish I would have tested all of these Vectan AS loads with the Fiocchi 616 Primers.

Another load was Rem Gold Nitro hull, Win 209 Primer, CB1118-12 wad with 17.7 gr of Vectan AS with 1-1/8 oz of shot. These five loads with the Win 209 Primer and 17.7 gr of Vectan AS averaged out to 1183 fps @ 11,275 psi.

I had one more of the same Rem Gold Nitro 1-1/8 oz loads tested but with 18.3 Gr of Vectan AS and it averaged out to 1206 fps @ 11,880 psi. This load failed, over SAAMI MAX.

All of these loads may have tested under 11,000 psi if I used Fiocchi primers.

I've used AS in 7/8 oz., 1 oz., and 1 1/8 oz. and all 3 loads were clean or about equal to Extra Lite and E3 which I am very familiar with and consider as a clean burning powder.

4th.down,
While I have no AAHS hulls I do have 1000+ old style once fired AA. Would you think your 1 1/8 load would work in them? Larry
