    I was wondering what these hulls are worth. I'm pretty sure they aren't bringing once fired Nitro hulls but just wondering.

    I got .05/ea plus shipping last ones I sold about 4 months ago. I wouldn't sell any of mine for less than that.

    No hull is worth more than .05. Fed papers usually bring the top price.

    Considering the demand, and the initial outlay cost for those papers, I think they are worth every bit of .05, maybe more. I have seen them sell for .06 on here before. There is just something about a Federal Paper hull.

    Why are Fed papers worth more? Something magical in them? I toss mine.

    Based on the sts primer price on here, I suspect you can retire if you have very many of them! Tom Rhoads

    Between fired Federal papers & Hoppe's #9 I can't make up my mind which I'm addicted to more. Life span for Federal paper hulls is short (usually only two or three reloads before they burn thru)but probably the most comfortable shell you can shoot. If only they lasted a bit longer!
