I loaded Hornady hulls the same as any other Euro hull with no problems. Then, I don't load them to top pressures so I do have plenty of room for safety.

I haven't seen any load data for True Blue in shotguns but the other two are pretty common.

Competition is a very fine grain ball powder that can result in a fair bit of leakage around the bar on a MEC. It is designed for 12 ga competition loads up to 11/8 oz. I didn't bother playing with it for shotgun and used up the two 12 oz bottles I had in handguns.

HS-6 has been around for ages and was also known as Winchester 540 for many years. It is a decent powder for mid-level 12 ga hunting loads, 1-1 1/8 oz 16 ga, 7/8- 1 oz 20 ga, and 3/4 oz 28 ga. I use it for the 28 ga and some 12 ga, 1 1/4 oz buffered loads. It produces some decent velocities in many handgun rounds but I have other powders I prefer for that.
