    Those have to be old and musty, probably not too good. They are even before my time.

    I had some Federals from the 1976 Grand, and some had mold on them and lots of them split on the first loading.

    Your milage may vary. I do have, I think 3-400 wads for them if they have a high base wad. I also have some AA12R for Win papers or porch shooters.

    sarge - back when I got serious about trap shooting in the 60's the Peters Blue Magic was one great hull - I think I have a couple hundred stached in my loading room - (broke a few 25's and 50's with them) - TOM

    The Blue Magics were made out of bubble gun....the sucked!

    The RXPs and Green Premiers were wonderful hulls....now Remington's gold Nitro 27s and STSs are very good hulls.

    Ahab - funny never had probs with my Blue Magics - have to agree with you that the current Nitro's and STS's are one great shell - second to my Federal Papers when I can get them - TOM

    These remington paper hulls are in fine shape. They looked better than the old style plastic AA hulls!

    You might put them in the oven at 150ยบ (open mouth down) for a few min to 're-wax' them, and they'll take *97 prinmers, I'm pretty sure.

    They'll shoot and shouldn't split.

    primer was a 97 or 57 hard to find. They need a flake like red/green because the primer is not sealed.

    Remington-Peters papers definitely used a #57 primer and those primers haven't been made for several years.

    funny thing is, I just gave up some 157,97 and 57 primers to Papcharlie. Now these come my way. Also just got rid of a few hundred ACTIV hulls. Now I just got some ACTIV wads.

    Finding a wad for those hulls might be tough. The AA red wad may work. The orginal "Power Piston" wads may have worked for them too. We mostly used a SAC Dome and a 3/8" fiber wad.

    Expect "boomers" with those Remington papers. Some said the boomer resulted from gas leaking back between the paper hull walls and the basewad. Others felt the cause was the flimsy, but very high basewad. Parts of the very high basewad would deteriorate and partially block the the primer flash. I don't think "boomers" were dangerous, they just gave a distictive sound. You'll know it when you get one. Whatever the cause, a "boomer" wouldn't work the action of an 1100 or 58.
