    Looking thru my stash of Shells,I came across some AA low base brass shells.
    I wonder why they don't go back to the low brass to lower the price of the shells. I shot some of these out of a 1100 years ago and never pulled the heads off. I also shot some Active shells without any metal heads I think the Active had the steel insert cased in the plastic this would solve the face of the recever problem. ..

    They were cute but some auto loaders ripped the low brass from the shell. My 11-87 didn't like Active, Eclipse, or low brass AA shells.

    I suspect it would raise the cost of shells if Winchester made several different sized brass heads.

    They don't care. They went from a perfect one piece hull to a two piece hull, did't they? HMB

    Never saw these before. What years did Winchester make them? Dave T.

    I believe those low brass AA's were the origninal (first) 1-ounce shells made by Winchester and were readily identifiable. I think it was a couple of years before they used the "standard" AA hull for the 1-ounce loads.

    There really was a time when 1 1/8 ounce were all you could buy...either 2 3/4 dram or 3 dram loads...that was it.

    I never had a problem reloading them...loaded them till they started to split at the folds.
