Loading Nitro Hulls

I have been doing a track on nitro hulls. I started with 100 and have loaded them 20 times already. Out of the 100 I have 85 left. Not bad at all,I guess you could say I got my monies worth. It wasn't the crimp/fold that went but a split on the side. Most hulls the crimp wears out first.

I load them until they split; 20 times is awesome!

Not Nitro hulls, but 20 Gauge AA hulls fail the same way. They invariably split on the side above the brass before they lose the crimp in some way.

The new (HS) AA20's sure do - as do the HS AA28's. Sure glad I have a lifetime supply of both in the old CF construction.

I do also, but I got a hekkuva deal on AA 20 Gauge recently and I'm going to reload them until they split.

I've shot the nitro's, gun club's, and STS's. Seem's like the nitro's just lasted a little longer. Got to reading post's by Oneounce and thought I'd see what I got out of them.

I've been given a lot of the HS20's, I load them once, take them to the Sporting range(s), shoot 'em and drop 'em into the trash can.

Not sure what a "lifetime supply" is so still keeping all the AA HS hulls I have and can get!

Would you part with some of the 28 gauge?

Hey RKB, I'm just getting back into reloading after a 20+ year absence.
I just bought a Browning GTI just like the one I used to have.
I'm going to get a set of Briley companion tubes in 28 gauge for it.
I have 1,500 Claybuster 28 gauge old style wads, and would really
love to get a matching number of the old style hulls for reloading.
Any chance you would part with some of yours?
Let me know.
Thanks,
Jeff Parker in Columbus, Ohio
