I want to reload 20 Guage Winchester AA shells using WW231 powder and duplicate the factory 2 1/2 dram equivalent target load. Anyone who can give me the correct powder charge please e-mail it to [email protected]

According to the Winchester Reloading Manual, there is no load listed using Win 231 powder. I think it would be much too fast a burner. They list WSF and 571 powders only for the 20ga. According to the manual, 16.5 gr of WSF, with 7/8oz shot, WAA20 wad, and Win209 primer duplicates the ballistics of the factory 2 1/2 dram target load.

Don't shoot the messinger. Check out their website. Mikey

Are you trying to make a faster load? just to worn you you should only load 20 gauge shells may be 1 to 3 times if you are going to make faster loades.
