    I recently obtained a number of the old style AA hulls. Among them I see quite a few hulls with extra low brass. They are marked 1OZ Target Load.

    Are these just as safe to reload as the normal height brass? Thanks.

    The brass only serves to extract the shell.

    As the other posters have told you, these hulls are every bit as strong as the other AAs of that period. I have loaded bunches of them and use to really like the way they went though the loader - no sizing required.

    Enjoy them.

    I got several hundred from a retired officer who had attended the FBI Academy in the late 70s. The agent who ran the range let officers pick up brass and hulls. This officer stored these for over 30 years.

    They are still like new, and I load them as many times as any AA CF shell. They work fine with all kinds of loads, from light to heavy.

    Yes - I have loaded thousands of them and still do. I bought many cases of the original 1 ounce loads. Winchester actually had shells with NO brass - just plastic extended for the head. I think they were for export many years ago. They load and last just as well.
