    When they went to the smooth hulls, I tried them, and to my surprise I got pin holing at the mouth of the hull after the first reload. I find a few now and then and because of my disbelief in this condition, I try and reload them with the same results. Brue

    southjblue.....i've found 4 times is enough on smoothies as you are correct ..they split in about half and lodge in the barrel...good luck getting it out i've gone through it a number of times. For those that pop them on the ground look out...make sure it was the whole shell!!!

    I have had more of these come apart just above the brass than all other shells combined ten-fold. I have two more boxes to shoot, and you can bet a month's wages I'll leave them where they fall upon ejection! On the other hand, I had some that reloaded 10 times. Very inconsistent hull. Like my Grandma would say "POS".
