Hi, all.  A friend recently purchased 2 8-lb. jugs of powder.  One is marked wc-820, the other is marked wc-m9.  Does anyone know where some reloading info could be found for these powders?  All info I can find about it is from forum pages like these.  He obviously would like to see some concrete numbers from a credible source before taking suggestions from a stranger.  Any help on a source, or personal experiences with these powders would be appreciated.

They are sealed, new powder.  We were able to find the website of the retailer, but no loading info links were present.  Lyman doesn't list them, not sure about speer, but doubt it.

So far, I've read forums saying to follow load numbers h110, h108, and AA-9.  Would like to try to pin those guesses/suggestions down a little farther before risking injury, not to mention a grand or so in equipment.  Anyone with a suggestion for a better website to find this info would help, too.  Thanks

I found and ordered a loading manual for military ammo from .22 to 30 mm.  I am hoping this gives us the info we're looking for.  I found this manual online, will let anyone who is interested know the website after we check it out to see if it is what we needed.  Thanks.

  I know of one instance where a military surplus powder that was released for commercial use had its designation changed. H4831 had a different designation as a military powder but right off I don't remember it. Possibly the same with your friends powder. Hopefully someone will have some info for us. That wc-820 rang a bell but I can't remember where I saw it in print at.
