    A friend gave me a bunch of federal hulls(wally world shells) and I was thinking of relaoding them for the first shot of doubles and throw them out but I can't find much for data to do so or maybe they cannot or should not be reloaded. They have a paper wad base in the bottom of the hull.

    Thanks!

    I reload them and know many others who do as well. In general you can use the data for the federal papers since they have the paper base wad too. They are good for one time then let them fly. I have noted they don't run as smoothly through my MEC compared to shells with a brass base, but it's generally not a problem.
