Correct wads for 12ga. older Winch. AA hulls?

I'm just getting back into reloading after a 20+ year absence.
I have 400 twice-fired Winch. AA's Compression Formed? I assume
as compared to the new HS High Strength hulls. I don't have any
12 ga. wads, so exactly what do I need to purchase for use with
these old hulls?
I also have 1,500 Claybusters 28 gauge wads and no hulls.
If I buy a couple cases of new 28 gauge winchester AA shells,
will they work to reload with my old wads?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Jeff

I hate to be "that guy" but it sounds like a load book will sort you out. I'm pretty sure the ballistics products books will have loads for the old hulls, so it will tell you what wad you need, depending on the shot you use.

Same goes with the 28ga. Find a load that uses the wads you have and see if they have a load that uses the aa

The "old wads" do not work well in the new "HS" hulls.They are for a tapered wall hull and the new HS hulls are straight walled.

Thanks SteveY! So what I need to find is some older 28 gauge winchester AA hulls
to use with my 1500 Claybuster wads?! I suppose it's "good luck with that". haha
So I assume if I buy "new" Claybuster 28 gauge wads they will work with
the "New HS" hulls! Sure does make it expensive for me to reload 28 gauge!

The new wads will have "HS" as part of the ID number.

Except we do not know if his 28 gauge wads are the old style or not.

As to the old CF hulls, Alliant does not differentiate between older CF and newer HS hulls. Their website give a LOT of loads depending on payload size, etc.

You are right, but he was out of reloading for 20 years, so I assumed.
