I got some nice results with Win AA HS, using the 7/8oz load, #3s, w/ 4756 and reducing a 1oz load of #2s, using Steel, from the RSI book. But,, that's my 870 with a Wad Wizard SWAT choke @ 30 yds.

I use the new AA HS hulls for my Skeet, Trap and Sporting Clays lead loads. To get a good crimp with no hole in it and to keep the side of the hulls from buckling I use 1-1/8 oz wads for 1 oz loads and 1 oz wads for 7/8 oz loads.

With bulkier powder like Clays there is not enough space in the hull to get a good crimp without the hull buckling. No matter how I adjusted my Mec Grabber the crimps had holes in them or the buckling did not go away.

Since I started using different wads that give more space for the powder and shot the HS AA hulls have been making great looking reloads.

RSI, Vol. 8, No. 1:

pg 8, Recipe 1. 7/8oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1425fps; 9700 LUP

Recipe 107. 1oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1550fps; 10,000 PSI

Recipe 108. 7/8oz; Win primer; SR4756; Sam1; 1675fps; 10,700 PSI

In Tom Roster's CONSEP steel on phez study, the best load was 1oz #2s @ 1365 fps. He didn't have #3s, 'nor faster shells at that time.

One can do a lot with the AA HS hulls.

I sub Ched primers. I don't shoot #108, as it's too much for the farm phez I shoot. For my situation, 1oz #2s, or 7/8oz #3s, moving a little faster, is nice. I even was shooting birds with 7/8oz #2 and a skeet choke, but the pattern got very skinny @ 30yds. BUT,, 7/8oz #2 with my Wad Wiz Extreme/LM is deadly @ 30 yds. It's a more narrow pattern than the 1oz #3s with the WW SWAT choke. I'm "assuming" the lighter load, through a tighter choke, will throw a more similar pattern at diff. distances, than an open choke and a big payload, where there's heavy pattern density in closer, spreading to become thin.

Lemme know what you learn!

p.s..... RSI has loads for HW13 shot in AA hulls! Pull a AA outta your pocket and rock a goose at 60yds and watch your friends' faces. HA!

Hey Kenner I've got all those components so I'll put some together and try to get them to the patterning board over the screens. Most times when guys give me recipes there always seem to be one and sometimes two components that I don't have but for yours I've got lots of all of them.
BTW the local gunshop is starting to get powder shipments and I picked up a lb of LongShot today.

OK tried to load a couple but my RSI Vol 8 N0 1 lists ASTEEL powder........
The ASTEEL , 35 gr for #107 won't close, even reducing the load to 430 grains #3 leaves a hole that I will have to GAEP.
You didn't mention the powder charge for SR 4756 ????

I'll PM you with my load data; don't want to put recipes on the board.

*** While I have loaded gray/grey AA hulls, I only load the red or orange ones now, because the grey ones are easily lost. I don't know if there's a difference between colors, or not. So, anything I've said 'bout patterns, is in regard to the red AA HS hulls.
