    - New AA red
    - New AA grey
    - Old AA red
    - Old AA silver
    - Fed GM Paper

    Old AAs, Federal papers, Remington Green and Gold are at the top of price range, usually 5 cents a piece. Those are for 12 guage hulls. HMB

    It depends on the market in your area... if hulls are plentiful... price can and should be lower... if not, higher. I've seen retail as high as $0.10/pc...

    Recently, one of my guys brought in bags and bags of hulls (10-15000) - original AAs, STS/Nitros, even Premiers (I snapped thouse babies UP!) $0.03/hull if you bought a 1000... I believe one guy bought 5K, got his for $0.025...

    Whatever the market will bear... don't like the price, haggle... don't get caught short, but buy'em when you can find the price more reasonable!

    With the rebates there is a glut of hulls for sale sts and nitro hull still go for a nickel but if shipping is involved the price has to less because most can buy all they need locally.Jerry

    I live in SE PA. I can buy all the once fired, never hit the ground STS green and gold hulls I want for $.03 ea. I'm simply astonished that they go for more in other areas of the country.

    What is even more astonishing is how many people shoot factory and just toss their hulls. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm not too proud to pick them up.
