    Phil,

    My son's bunker load only works well with new AA hulls and I would be happy to pay shipping to TN.

    Been reloading them for the past several years. Not a problem. Use a MEC to reload..

    They do suck for regular reloading, but if you roll crimp 2 1/2 shells or slugs or whatever, they make a beautiful roll crimp. I cast and load my own slugs and these things are great. The same attributes that make them suck for star crimping make them great for roll crimping.

    I agree. Life is too short to load the new AA. I won't take them for free.

    I was nxt to a STS reload today and WALA ---It seperated,brass from hull---
    Just thought I'd pass that along---It took 15 min to get the hull out of the bbl---I don't want to jinx myself but been using new AAs for a few yrs now and no problem---I load them on a Mec and a Dillon---JMO---George@SJB---

    I'll take all that anyone wants to give me, no problem reloading, I have found Duster wads work very well and CB1100.

    I'll be glad to take some too. I hate for you to have to hazzle with them for free but will certainly take care of the shipping. Jackie B.

    A person would have to be crazy to purchase new AA shells and then sell them for $.01 apiece or even worse give them away. The price for a flat of AA shells is the same as for a flat of STS and anyone can get $.04 to $.05 apiece for the STS hulls.

    I am curious---I have been shooting new AA reloads and have been shooting nxt to those that shoot them also---So far I haven't heard of any serious problems.
    Note that I shot nxt to a STS reload today and the shell came apart---I hear about the two part hull but if loaded with Win components and on a Mec they load perfect---They slip into the chamber perfect also without resizing---
    What's the beef???Just wondering---SJB---

    I broke 100 straight this weekend with reloaded Grey AA shells.
    17 gr Nitro 100 , windjammer wad , cheddite primer , 1 1/8 oz of mag 8's
    No problems with AA's I can see. They crimp great for me.
