I have a load for the SupperX Hull but my lyman book says it is the same hull.....
23.0gn of uniqie
RP 12 wad
And 1 1/4 of laed shot
cci # 109 shot primer
must use filler over the shot or the crimp pushes in.or you can just add 1/4 more shot and you dont need filler.
For filler all use is alitle packing popcorn

AA hull
Winchester 209 Primer
WAA12SL Wad (Actually, I use the Downrange Manufacturing clone)
7/8 Ounce of Shot
16.5 Grains of Red Dot

Very low recoil, loaded with #6 Shot it busted a lot of Grouse for me this past year.

How low recoil do you want to go?? Is this low enough for you??

AA Hull
18 grs Red Dot
AA or Claybuster 7/8 oz. Grey Wad
WW or Fiocchi Primer
3/4 ounce shot

This load basically duplicates a 28 ga. target load of 3/4 oz.@ 1200 fps. Great load for women and kids who are starting out and you don't want to make recoil shy. I shoot it in sporting clays occasionally and only loose a couple birds to my regular 12 ga. 1 oz. scores.
