    started loading some rem gold hulls , seamed to not crimp as tight as the sts i have been using. i use a 366 loader. i did change powder but am using the same bushing, shot, and wad. went from gd to ame select. i did not get a chance to run some more sts hulls to recheck every thing. thandk charles

    The STS hulls and Nitro hulls load exactly the same. I have never noticed any difference in crimps. Try adjusting final crimp stage to create deeper crimp. I also use the 366 reloader. My reloads come out looking like factory shells.

    I also load STS green and gold hulls. I HAVE noticed a difference in hull lengths and crimps from one lot to another; not necessarily from one color to another. I DO get hulls that threaten to lose a pellet upon closure followed by another that has a bunched, spiral closure. It seems to be a normal difference in lots (lot A vs lot B) with the Rem. hulls and I basically ignore it except to make adjustments so that none are too open and most are quite perfect....Bob Dodd

    I throw the "bad" ones in a seperate box and use them at the farm to shoot black birds or for fun at hand thrown targets. They usually cycle through my 1100!

    Remington is noted for cutting their hulls at various lengths. Makes for some interesting crimps at times!!

    I have standardized on Remington Nitro and STS hulls as well. On my PW, I see a difference between the green and gold. I believe they are relatively consistent within their color, but the green require I drop the starting crimp station just a tad. I also believe the STS green hull takes a bit more pressue to push the new primer in? Why I have no clue, but I have to tweak the priming station to shove it in a bit more on green. I have a spolar hydraulic unit doing the hard work, so I believe my up/down action to be consistent.

    Both load exactly the same outside of two tweaks...just my experience, your mileage may vary.

    rich-s, trust me, if they looked enough like an artichoke, and since an artichoke is only a vehicle for consuming WAY too much mayonnaise, I'd likely boil those hulls, dip'em in the Best Foods (different name on the right side of the map), and consume away!....breakemall....Bob Dodd
