    So I see a couple of these hulls laying around and got a few of them to run though my reloader they didn't run to bad and didn't have to adjust any settings vs my aa or remington hulls I was loading

    Look a lot like Winchester AAHS except for the color. What do they look like when you shine a light inside? Like the AA or like the STS?

    I read an article saying that Browning and Winchester joined to make this ammo. Assuming the hulls are AAs black in color. i would love to get my hands on some of them.

    Honestly I didn't even look inside them. Just stuck a few of them on the loader to see how they would turn out. I will try to look at one when I get off work and see what they resemble more

    6 on the crimp and I loaded the same light 1oz load with the clay buster lightning wad (windjammer copy) with 16.5 grains of clays and a winchester primer. Obviously there is no data on these hulls yet and that's why I only loaded 6. It's not like I was putting max loads in them I always start out soft on the powder and work my way up to where I like them

    They are not Remington hulls.

    Smokin trucker-----was the crimp "memory" as bad as it looks in your pic of the browning hull????? Resembles the looks of the early plastic hulls we tried re-loading without a sleeve\shotcup. Ross Puls

    They are 6 crimp from factory and I loaded them as a 6 crimp and that is exactly how they came out of the gun after being shot

    Interesting hulls look cool even better if you shoot a browning.

    I read on another forum that the bases are brass (non-magnetic) but the primers are steel.

    The magnet could be sticking to the primer. Take the primer out and see what happens. Or, it could be the other guy was wrong. But he did say the primers in the AAHS hulls were non-magnetic.

    I just shot a few boxes of these I traded for and shot them. I did notice that the plastic is a bit different than any other shell I have loaded. Slicker and lighter in weight. I also noticed that all the crimps were blown out straight like they were loaded really hot. I loaded them back with a 6 crimp and most loaded well. Loaded them like my handicap loads. But has anyone else noticed how these seems to blow the case mouths out straight? Never have I seen this in factory loaded trap loads. Look like a slug hull!!!
