    Default Winchester 571 Powder

    I inherited a brand new 8lb can of 571 and would like to find some loads to use it with. I understand it is the same as HS-7 also. I shoot 45acp, 40s&w,357mag, 380acp. and 12ga Trap and Skeet. Anyone have some info or sources?
    thanks

    Default Winchester 571

    I looked in my sources and the only mention (Handloader's Digest, ca. 1974) I found was that 571 was (is) a relatively slow-burning powder developed for magnum 12-gauge loads. Speer manuals of that time don't show it as a handgun propellent in their load tables in any calibers, but according to the burn rate chart in H.D., it is near Blue Dot and HS-7. I would think that 571 is way too slow for any of your handgun calibers except possibly the .357 Magnum, and even then I'd expect unburned powder and some really impressive muzzle flash. This powder might work with heavier bullets and longer (10 inches or more) barrels, but that's just my opinion.

    There were a couple of loads for the 12-gauge in the article. Do you want them?
