is load data for the old red AA hulls interchangeable with the new gray hulls? does anyone reload the super sport 12 guage hulls with any degree of luck? thanks to all who respond.

Yes, the exact same data for the old hull applies to the new hull. I have loaded plenty of them and never had a problem other than short life. There was a lot of commotion right after the SS hull was introduced about base wad seperation and guns blowing up but I have not witnessed it. I also have not heard any reports of this happening for quite some time.

I have found the STS hulls from Remington to last longer than the Super Sport hulls, I think they are a better choice for reloading.

i agree they will both load the same... i also load the green remington sts hulls with the same recipie and have experienced the same that they hold up a lot better than the AA hulls.. back when i shot skeet a lot i would shoot/reload about 1000-1200 rounds of various ga. per week

It is my understanding that only the 28 and 410 shells need the new Winchester wads and that may not actually be the case as many of my shooting buddies are using non Winchester wads. IMHO The STS sure seem to hold up well, definatly better than the Winchester AA and the new HS loads,,
I expect that if the new Winchester shells are around long, someone will make wads specific for them.
