Thanks BT-Great info there. I thought I might offer some images of hulls I recently cut to go along with your descriptions, and to bring up some general questions for anyone to answer. As answers are given, I will include that info and edit out the questions. Some of these are my own and others are from guys on the forum that I have saved. If it is your image and you would prefer to have it taken it down, no questions asked, just PM me. I really would like to see a general "Hull id & Information" sticky. I'm convinced that descriptions like the one you have posted here and the pics of hulls and cut hulls would be referenced time and time again.
Federal Hulls: Gold Medal and Federal Integral Hulls(photo by vital_kill)
It appears that you copied this photo from a duckhuntingchat thread of Dec 2011: Thread on "Federal Hulls"
Poster vital_kill included it in his post of Dec 06, 2011 6:56 pm.
The difficulty is that you are incorrect.The photo was not by vital_kill. The photo is mine, and I've posted it several times on shotgunworld.com, for example my post on that site from Nov 2, 2009: Hulls for Turkey Loads
You are really not to be faulted; the problem was vital_kill's failure to make a proper attribution for the source of the image in his December posting.
It's not necessary to delete the photo from your post above. If it's useful, I'm pleased. It you could edit the post to show the photo was by "pitted bore from shotgunworld.com", that will be fine.
