Traded for an 8# jug. Never loaded any. I have all the data and know it should be a very good powder.
BUT people who have actually used it have an opinion.....That's what I'm looking for.
What is your experience??

It's the OEM powder Win uses in the factory AA Super Handicap load. I use it and because it is so dense, it works well in the AAHS hull with standard wads with excellent stack height. Pulverizes the targets.

Try 19 grains to start with 1oz loads or 20grains for 1 1/8 loads.You will have to use a smaller bushing.#13 or 14 is close .use your scale. It is a very dense powder.You will have to experiment with different wads for the stack height.Clean burning.
There is not a lot of recipies for this powder.The pressure is low so you have a little leeway with your reloads.
It also meters very well from shell to shell.
Most powders I used took a 30 or so bushing.I am using the bushing from a small gauge loader that I load skeet
shells on. I am sure you will like this powder

Hey Jim, good to see you are getting around to loading a little of the WSH. Good stuff in my opinion! I have loaded it for 3 or 4 years and like it enough not to change.
AA hull
WW 209 primer
20.5 WSH powder
Spolar Gold Wad
11/8 Remington 71/2 shot
This load is just a little short of a Winchester factory Handi-cap load. Mushes em' up pretty good if you somewhere close to the birdy!!!
See you at the Louisiana State Shoot..............

I would mention this powder is designed for high speed loads with 1 1/8 oz. Downloading velocity or shot load may well give less than stellar results in cold weather. Remember, winter is upon us.

I would look long and hard at MG 1 Polo's load suggestion, and duplicate it for Caps.

I tried loading this late last summer. Really happy with it. Great crimps. I'm bettin' you'll like it Jim. I also backed the powder of to 20.0 gr and it still did real well IMHO.
Good luck.

At the bench this morning: 1 1/8oz 7.5, DRXL 1 1/8, WW209 primer and 20.0 gr Super H Cap
9/16" from top of shot to edge of hull. Looks great. And For what it's worth, the P.W. bushing listed is to meter 20.0 gr--It does exactly.
This SHOULD give about 1225fps or so and that will do me just fine.
Again: Thanks
Jim

One small addition - not necessarily directed at OP Jim...

The burn rate for WSH is similar to Green Dot and Hodgdon's International. That's why it's such a good option for 1 1/8 oz handicap loads. OTOH it is less than ideal for one ouncers where powders with a faster burn rate shine.
