    I Need help finding info on these hulls, I don't think they are old gun club hulls, anyway I'm wanting to load them and I just want to be sure to have the right data to go from and this is the place to get it.
    All that's on them is Remington Peters on the brass and Remington light 8 on the hull, hope the pic is clear.


    thanks in advance!!

    Lee----I'm not exactly sure of what they are called but i too have some and blue ones to match. I loaded them just using the same STS data and little lighter on the powder with absoluetly no problems.----Matt

    I believe they are the Remington version of Blue Magics. Good hulls. Use figure 8 wads. Or as some around here say, "Those are dangerous, send them to me for disposal":<}}}

    Guys the pic may look blue but they are dark green like the new STS just don't have the silver in the green like the STS does.

    thanks

    They look just like Remington Premier which were the top Remington shell before the STS came out. They load just like STS.

    There are Remington Premier hulls. A great hull. As was pointed out, they load exactly like the current Remington STS hulls

    Thanks for the info, I should be set on hulls for a while. So I can assume that I just use the chart for a STS hulls and go from there.

    Tron, did you have your pussy cat inspect the pic for you and respond. I feel honored to have your presents.lol

    I'm wondering if that is what was refered to as a Remington RTL hull case. I believe these were before the Premiers. The STS's and Nitro's followed that. I still have once fired Premiers and some Premiers in my mix. I think that style of case was their best. They seem to last half way to forever.

    Those hulls crimp better than any hull out there. I use STS data.
