BP.... You're giving away your age if you remember Alcan. You're right on about the primers.... as I recall, they're a little warmer than a Wichester.

PAgsp... any published load using a Federal 209A (the "A" is important) or a CCI 209M (the "M" is important, too) would be just fine, as both of those primers are as hot or hotter than the old Alcans. If you're down at the lower end of the chart for a given powder/wad/shot charge combination, even the loads published for the Win 209 should be okay.

Not to give away my age, or anything..... but I learned reloading with Alcan 7, paper hulls, fiber wads, and a roll crimp. I also remember when the "new" plastic shells came out, and my Dad bought a spiffy new MEC Super 250 to reload them.
