making an assumption about the powder used is a huge mistake that could be dangerous to you and the firearm and is IMO, very bad advice to those thinking about reloading.
Let's try this one more time. Here is a link to the Midway USA listing for a container of Winchester AA Lite smokeless powder http://www.midwayusa.com/product/2900322843/winchester-aa-lite-smokeless-powder
If you look at the photo you will see the load data printed on the label on the can of powder. You probably can't make it out from the photo but that's what I am talking about. It is load data for AA Lite powder, of course.
I am not making any assumptions, I am simply pointing out what Winchester has put on the label of the powder that they manufacture.
I happen to be very careful about what I say or post about handloading. I don't post load data, even though I load from reliable sources and never go "off the page". I have pointed people to manufacturers' websites and manufacturers other published load data.
