One of the things that has me scratching my head, is 2 3/4" unibody Rem hulls you would think they would be large volume not having a basewad. However, they are the same volume as a tapered STS Rem hull. Crazy!

You are lucky that yours turned out the same volume. Take my word for it, all are not the same. Like I said, I have run across yellow bw that were both large and small volume. I have never seen black bw that were anything but large volume. Both sizes in white. If you are used to loading the large volume Rem hulls, when you try the same load in a smaller volume hull, you will know it because the components wont fit.

Some tubes are 1/16" to 1/8" longer than average, some are 1/16 to 1/8" shorter than average. I use a fixed measurement cutter to trim all Remington hulls for use in my Gold. Once trimmed they all have the same OAL and internal depth. Some OLD yellow base wad hulls where .250" But I do not find many in my buckets of Remington 10ga hulls. They load the same but you might find the final crimp is not set for them, after doing the .200" base wad. You will feel them.
