Default 20 ga. reloading information

Hello Members

I'm looking for reloading information regarding 20 ga. low pressure loads, 7200 lbs. or less, for classic shotguns. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Ed

Hard to get that low, but look at Alliant's Reloading site at 20/28 powder. I use it for 3/4 and 7/8 oz loads with the Claybuster 1075 and 1078 wad. I am in the UP and dont have acess to my reloading data.

Those two loads imply that high velocity is a requirement. Ridiculous. Look beyond those 1250 and 1300 loads for a conservative 1175 load.
