    OK, this may sound like a stupid question, but being a new reloader please bare with me. A simple yes or no is a good enough answer.

    Is there a difference between Remington Gun Club hulls that are factory loaded with 1 oz. and 1 1/8 oz. shot?

    I believe the only difference is the Wad and the amount of shot.

    Thanks, Blueraven

    You would be correct, no difference.

    Possibly a different type of powder, but even if the same powder, likely a different amount of it.

    Hulls are the same. Occasionally you'll run into some game load hulls that are identical, but have a 6-point crimp.

    I still use them. The crimps aren't pretty, but they work fine.

    Thanks, I loaded 200 1 1/8 oz shells today in hulls that were factory loaded with 1 oz. and all is good.

    You'll be fine. The Remington STS's, Nitro, Gun Clubs, Sport Loads, Sur-shot Heavy Dove, Game Loads (probably a few more) all load the same. I havn't messed with too many Gun Clubs but, the ones I have ran off were very good reloads. A guy I shoot with reloads the heck out of them. I believe they will reload longer than an STS's by what I've seen of my friends experience with them. I just prefer a brass base, I know I'm anal so I've been told.
