    Fed paper empty hulls for reloading seem to bring a premium over plastic. What if any is the advantage. With plastics having a longer life,I would think the opposite would be true.

    I like Paper Feds but I dont think they smell as good as in the early years.

    Clyde I've been wondering the same Damn thing. Since beretta young gun posted his data, I would think that a few things would change. Then again as long as they are being bought for more then plastics I'll stick with them.
