    I'm sure this has been thrashed over before but I never had reason to ?
    I usually only load Rem hulls with fig 8 wads but I came across loads of Fed and AA hulls along with Fed 12S0 wads and wondering if they will work in STS hulls--Also wondering if the 12S0 will work in AAs----Thanks---SJB

    Timb99 says yes----I think that Rem and Win are tapered and Fed is straight wall

    If so why will the 12S0 work in all three???Just wondering----

    In all my younger reloading yrs we never had such an assortment to worry about.

    I just hate to try experamenting when you all can save me some AG----Thanks

    Some times the load has to do with the bulk of the powder being used. Some times the load has to do with the skirt on the wad being a little larger than they used to be.

    Now if your loading Rem. hulls and figure 8's I presume your dropping 1.125 oz of shot.

    The 12SO is primarily a 1 oz wad. With certain powders reloading data does exist for use of this was in AA and Rem. cases but you may notice slight bulge in hull where base of was seats on powder.

    Now your fig 8 wads have a number of listed loads for AA hulls.
    .
    You could always sell Fed. hulls and wads and buy what your use to.

    A few months ago, I was given some Federal wads and loaded a couple of boxes of old syle AA hulls. The result was that about 25% sounded weak (low pressure sounds) but hit the targets.
