hulls

Postby micneador » Wed Mar 19, 2014 9:11 pm

So as I understand, cheddite hulls (Rio, Kent, and Estate gold brass) are mentioned a lot in steel reloading.
So are AA and STS hulls junk for reloading steel, a pain in the arse, or are none of them called for in steel recipes?

I have about 200 mixed AA/STS hulls that are all once fired and wondered if they should just be dedicated for skeet/small game loads.

I load the AA using RSI 107 and the STS and equivalents with recipes from Lightning Steel 2. I also load STS with a Wildcat load. Ned S

Or, you can sell the once-fired STS/AA's, and use the money to buy twice as many Rios.................. :thumbsup:

You can get all the RIO hulls you want free from your local gun club, however be sure and check them for cracks. I just got 700 more from the Amarillo Gun Club and found seven with cracks that would ruin a gun. Ned S
