This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Nols. You are in my neck-o-the-woods. We shoot a lot of GCs and Esttes and Top Guns and Rios, and Kemens and they all hit the ground and we have to tip the kids to pick up after us and put them in thetrash bbl. What makes you think your GCs will be of value? I am across the St Croix from you and shoot at the Minneapolis GC. You been there I'm sure.

    Jack-you beat me to the punch-GC hulls are normally throw aways-you can get all you want for free in Eastern Carolina. I use them with Nobel Sports & reload them once & toss.

    Phil. I do not care for the tight fit in my PW dies. So I pass. I do pick up odd good hulls once in a while and load those for a bit o fun. Some feds or AAs. But I pass on the cheapos. Got a buddy that reloads the Estates. does a good job on those in his Mecster. But the PW likes the steady diet of STS. did you know that the ID if a green STS is slightly smaller tha that of a gold one?

    I woonder why that is?

    Currently loading some gold STS, 19.9 (by scale) of Green Dot, a fig 8 clone, Win primer and 1-1/16 oz lead. I like the lead because it does not fill th ehull up to bulging adn the felt recoil is about 10% less adn get 1250 in fps by my Pro Chrono digital.

    Jack- I shoot 1 oz for everything; Use Downrange TGT 12 clones & Claydot powders- use CCI-209 & Cheddite primers-put enought grains to give me 1180-1200 FPS for warm weather & then push it to 1235 for cold weather. Will be trying some Green Dot for the faster loads this year.

    Phil Berkowitz--may go to 1 & 1/16 when I get a new loader & its going to be a PW

    There's nothing wrong with gun club hulls as long as you get them before they get wet. If you don't the primer will rust into the steel hull.
    Otherwise they are an excellent hull and will reload easily 5 or more times.
    Far better than the 'new' AAs.

    <blockquote>"I do not care for the tight fit in my PW dies. So I pass.... But the PW likes the steady diet of STS."</blockquote>


    With an nearly-endless supply of no-cost good quality GCs available to reload, anyone with a P-W can consider spending a little extra money to buy a properly-adjusted new/used MEC Super Sizer to bolt next to their press. We have one sitting between our P-W 900s. We periodically take a short break from loading and run a couple 5-gallon bucketfuls of GCs through the resizer to eliminate the tight fit concern in the P-W dies. We can easily do 2-3 buckets in a evening session of a hour or so. We keep 10-15 buckets of resized hulls "in stock".

    To my way of thinking, a properly resized GC is easier on my nerves than an STS that makes that loud "POP" as it jumps into the die and slams against the die recess. We reload GCs 6 times and resize again after the 3rd reload.

    Jack----I'm loading virtually the same load right now and have been shooting it all year. I'm stuffing about 19.5 grains of Green Dot a Down Range Fig8 wad and Winchester 209 primer and a hair under a 1 1/8 shot #8 shot all into a STS hull. My Pacific prefers the STS over all the other hulls out there. It is smooth shooting with very little recoil and just munches those pesky White Flyers. Good load ehh?-----Matt

    grntitan,

    That load is about as good as it gets. My Pacific can't tell any difference between the Gun Club hulls or STS. Take the Gun Club hulls with Promo, 209 Primer, and Downrange TGT12 clone wad, and 1 ounce of 8's, and then the load you have for 1 1/8 ounce.....You have an awesome doubles load. Use 1 ounce for first shot, and the 1 1/8 ounce for second. I take the Gun Club hulls, and load them twice. First time for practice, and second time for shooting doubles in an ATA event. I let them hit the ground in the tourney!

    I like to load all the inexpensive hulls for sporting clays. That way I don't have to dig into the weeds after my AA hulls and don't feel so bad about leaving them.

    Gun club hulls load fine. I have also sold them right here on this forum many times. There is nothing wrong with Nolan posting them for sale. It's funny when people say I'm wasting my time but for some reason they always end up selling.

    I may be posting some gun club hulls next week. If anyone is interested drop me a PM with your zip code for a shipping quote. They are also available for pick up in either Northumberland or Lancaster County.

    That’s a good point oleww. Clean, once fired, never on the ground and delivered.

    Certainly better then going through and sorting all the hulls that are picked up at the trap ranges.

    I reload gun clubs...they reload great. I also dig through the bins...I drive a cheap car and shoot a lesser expensive choice of guns.
