    I've reloaded Winchester AA with Little Gun and Alliant 410. They both work but hull life is terrible. One blew out the sides, the other roasted the ends. (Can't remember which did which, doesn't matter) The best powder I've found for performance and hull life is Alliant 300MP. Their website has published loads for Winchester hulls, surprisingly low pressure and velocity of 1300 FPS.I've actually gotten 10 reloads out of some hulls. I've never been impressed by STS hulls but if you come across some Federal's don't be afraid to give them a try. I use a Mec 9000 and if they make it through the first reload without crushing you can usually get 3 or 4 loads out of them.
