    Mid-seventies. They were an excellent compression formed shell, I don't know why they quit making them.

    They were made before the gold Medal plastic hull. They differ insofar as they are of tapered construction rather than straight walled. Pretty much an imitation of AA dimensions. Prior to that they had a straight walled case labelled "league". there were others but I don't know them.

    AA recipes work in these hulls rather than the normal Federal dosages.

    I am still using some of them I got from a friend. When other shooters notice them, they tell me these hulls are old enough to vote. Jerry

    Federal used the Champion || for the 1976 Grand Bicentennial. I have a full box. They are lettered in gold 1976 Grand with a cracked bell and 1776. I loaded a lot of champ|| hulls and were a hard shell to load. Lots of arm pressure.

    I have a few thousand that I use for singles. Hits them very hard and they do kick more than my STS hull. They are pretty......Nubs Wagner.
