I have also loaded the HG load with Active, Fiocchi (light purple), orange Nobel Sport, Mirage and these have slightly less volume so I just drop the pellet count back five or six pellets with them using #2s.
Others have told me they like using #3s and #1s which I have not seen a need to try. I like using 2s with this load. Why fix something that works. Others have sent me patterns of 97% at 40 yards with the load. Since I hunt on water all the time, these hulls give me no greef from getting wet like a paper bw would. All of the paper bw hull versions will definitely have way less volume and are more suited for a 1oz payload. The only 2 3/4 hull I know of that has more volume is the old Fed Classic hull (maroon) that is unibody type with straight wall design. I have not tried loading the HG load with them. I think BPI sells a clear version of this hull, new/primed. The Fed GM hull will work for the HG load also only requires cutting back the pellet count a few pellets. The HG load is the only load I have come across that really likes and responds to being loaded with #2 size pellet. I have seen no sign of it being inconsistant with no irratic patterns.
