Default Mec 600 28 ga loading advise

I am about to start loading for the 28 ga. I have alot of the old Win AA hulls-- not the HS, Rem STS, and Nobelsport.
Got plenty of 20/28, Universal, GD, and 7625. Hoping to use the Claybuster 3/4 AA(pink) wad---Claybusters are cheaper and made in USA.
Anyone have any favorite loads. I'll be shooting them in the Dickinson 28.

I used WIN 540 religiously for years . Then like most everything else they quit making it ! I’m told Hodgdon HS-6 is the same thing but I didn’t try it before I sold my last 28 . I have used Unique in the past with very good results and I had a load using Universal Clays . 12’s and 20’s I don’t segregate hulls as long as they’re AA or STS and the 28’s had pretty much gotten that way with me as well . As for wads I used CB old AA or AA HS .

I’ve been reloading the 28ga. WAA CF and STS 2 3/4” hulls for many years. These recipes come straight out of Hodgdon’s Reloading Manual published in 1997. I’ve been totally satisfied with these loads and see little reason to change as I’ve got enough of the proper components for the time being.

* 28ga. WAA CF hull
* W209 primer
* 13gr. Universal powder
* CB1034-28 wad
* 3/4 oz. Shot
* 10,800 psi
* 1200 fps

* 28ga. Remington STS hull
* W209 primer
* 13.8gr. Universal powder
* CB1034-28 wad
* 3/4 oz. Shot
* 10,600 psi
* 1200 fps

If reloading the Remington 28ga you may find the plastic stops the primers from fully seating. Rem primers work, the rest need some help. Rem primers are just a bit shorter and have a radius. The plastic of the shell sticks in a bit at the end of the primer opening - it's a bit smaller than the primer pocket. A #1 drill will remove the plastic. You just have to do it once. A SS press seats primers differently than a progressive, so maybe you won't have the problem.
