    A Federal paper shell question for the folks here.

    Have any of you ever encountered a situation where when you fire factory new federal papers that dime and penny sized pieces of the mouth of the hull tear out and leave with the shot?

    I saw that happen this past weekend on some factory new paper loads that were like a factory live pigeon load.

    thanks

    They were probably old shells and the hull had dried out on them a bit.

    One of the bunker shooters was shooting new Federal paper 24 gram shells for a while. I picked up several hundred to reload and found a few with parts of the mouth gone after the initial firing.
