Reloading 12 Gauge Sabot Slugs

Can anybody offer some recipes to reload 525 gr. Lyman Sabot slugs in 12 gauge 3 inch or 2 and 3/4 inch shotshells? From the Lyman handbook I have gotten some ideas, e.g. Winchester 2 and 3/4 inch AA hulls, WSF powder or Unique.
Besides the Lyman handbook any suggestions where more up to date handloading data can be found?
Thank you,
Jerry

I load the sabots and also use thew Lyman book.

The best one I have found is

FedGM hull 2 3/4"
Win 209 primer
32.0gr/Herco
WAA12F114 wad

I have tried the others and found this to be the most accurate out of my 20" smoothy, and I shoot IPSC and PPC shotgun.

Just try the alll and find the one that your shotty likes.

FYI I'm not a masochist, I don't load 3", for me there isn't any point.
