    Sounds like problem is with the shooter and his reloading procedure, not the hulls.

    Michael ... possibly Phil has a bookoo boatload of game load and gun club hulls stashed in his garage at home and when he turns the world from using AA hulls he will begin offering his safe to use hulls and make quatrilzillions of quatloos from the sales.

    I shoot a 12 ga 391 and a 28 ga 1100, AAs are all I shoot and reload. Three years, no bloopers, no seperated base wads, and hulls that are getting reloaded at least 8 or 9 times.

    For 30 years I've reloaded AA's. Old one's, new one's, every kind they've ever made. 100,000's of thousands, and with few (very few) exceptions I've never, never, never had a problem. As a matter of fact I reloaded 500 yesterday. Every one came out perfect from my Dillon. All I can say it's amazing so many people have so many problems with AA's and I never have. I must be very, very lucky!

    Hi

    Will take new style once-fired AAs if you have any to throw away. Will pay postage!

    Loaded 25,000 this year on a MEC 9000G without one issue.

    Regards

    You can find all the new style AA's you want. All you have to do is look at the ground when you're out shooting next time. Hell you can find them all day long, but you'll very rarely see a Remington hull on the ground. If you do, it's all used up!

    Darn tough to find any real hull laying on the ground at my club. Plenty of Estates, Rios and Gun Clubs though!!

    'dawg,

    The word is out around this neck of the woods about the gun clubs/sport load hulls. If nothing else they reload them for flippers when shooting doubles.

    Might I just say, BULLFEATHERS!!!!!!!!!- I don't care if you're loading hulls sent directly from the Lord himself, somewhere, most likely more than once, you're going to encounter a problem of some sort within the course of 25,000 shells.

    blizzard- I can't disagree with your logic. You did mention hulls sent directly from above. Do you know what type of shells he shoots?

    brownk80- That is a heavy load with a lot of recoil. Does He use a Precision Fit Stock?

    This peeing contest comes up 2 or 3 times a year. I might as well add my 2 cents to the pot. I've been loading the new AA hulls for the last 5 years, Average about 35,000 reloads a year. Load most hulls 6-8 times. I have never experienced a separated hull, missing base wad, or a loose base wad. I shoot them in auto loaders and hinge guns.


    If your that paranoid, Maybe you should take up tiddly winks.

    I agree, I load about 20,000 black and red AA's per year and other than crushing one once in while have had no issues with them. I've got several thousand once fired Gun Club hulls that I would be glad to trade you for them. I can stand the smell with out a problem. Richard

    The bottom line here is that the new HS AA hull is a great hull to reload. Secondly, as has been mentioned, the failures you mention (bloopers) have to do with the person doing the reloading, and nothing to do with what hull the bad load happened to be loaded into.

    Pat,

    I'm pretty sure that He uses sts's. He thinks the "T" is close enough to being a cross.
