    There was some years where there the Gold Medal hulls were very thin and not real desired. I believe the older ribbed Gold Medals were the preferred hulls. That price is just ok. I sold the majority of what I had for 3 cents each.

    If you want the new AA's really cheap, send me a PM and I'll make you a heck of a deal on all the gray and red once fired AA's I have left. I have quite a few too.

    I would ask him if he could do .03 cents each. If not, I'd pass. There is just better hulls out there for the money. However, a good deal is when both buyer and seller are happy. If it wouldn't bother you to pay your buddy .04/ hull then by all means enjoy.

    I would say 3 cents is about tops.--- Most "new style" AAs are running around 2 cents, from what I see. They are two piece construction and the plastic is very brittle in them. ---STS Remingtons are still "king" 4 to 5 on them most of the time.

    You can get equivelent performance from the Estate or Top Gun hulls you see being tossed buy the dumpster load at most trap ranges. Why pay $100 for no apparent reason - doesn't sound like there is a freinship involved....

    I like GM's for reloading. They make a nice shell with Federal components. Personally I wouldn't get too wrapped around the axel about spending 3 vs 4 cents per hull. That really doesn't add up to very much money at the end of the day.
