:? I've reloaded these CF hulls with data from my Lyman's 2nd ed. for years before going inactive for about a decade. So my question is this. Old hull with new data, the Hodgdon site list data for the AA Compression formed is this data for my hull and not for the AA HS hull? I have bunches of these hulls and would like to continue to use them! If this data is for the CF hull(mine), do they list data for the new HS hull (don't need just curious) and I am just not finding that data? Doe the latest ed. of Lymans list data for both along with visual examples? Or is there no difference between to old hull and the new HS. From what I gather there has even been changes in the powders (e.g. old unique vs "cleaner" unique) over the last decade. Always like to use published data. I know the data for .410 list both CF and HS so is it safe to say the 12 ga data is for the old CF style hulls? Stupid is as Stupid does, I'd rather not play that role if I don't have too. :wink:

The load data for the HS hulls is the same as the CF in 12 and 20 gauge, It is not the same in the 28 and .410. There is separate data and wads in the 28 and .410. To be more specific the 28 HS is different than the ww28 CF hull and will require different wads and powder recipes. The same scenario applies to the 410.
I hope this is not confusing.

So even though you can see the difference between the 12 ga AA CF and HS hulls the loading data is the same? Good to know that. Thanks!
WW sez to lower the crimp starter until you cannot get a pencil eraser in the hole, I say use the small end of a primer as a gauge. They also call for 30-40 on wad pressure. This insures that the wad passes over the edge of the base wad. You can leave these settings in place for the older hulls and R-P hulls without a problem.
