    I recently acquired several large boxes of once fired blue Remington Peters hulls. These are the old style plastic Peters hulls. Can i load these like a normal Remington hull. They have been in a climate controlled shop and they are in mint condition.----Matt

    P.S. There was also old AA western hulls as well as numerous other hulls. Can they be loaded as long as they are in good shape? There is a bunch of white AA hulls with nothing on the hull but stamped AA on the bottom with W/W on them.

    If the Peters are the Blue Magics, just be aware some of them would separate just above the brass when reloaded.

    I've seen White double A's before. A local shooter went the the satellite grand in Florida maybe seven years ago. He brought back a bunch of white and baby blue AA's. They were made in Italy and I would not recommend you reload them, as they are not our AA's. They looked like Chedditte hulls to me. Bruce

    I have never had any trouble out of my Blue Magics. Had them in the closet for years and now reloading them and shooting them. Most have been loaded at least 6 times. Yep getting a little black on the ends,, but no cracks yet.

    Blue Magics and 700X do not go together. They split right in half.

    I've loaded hundreds of them with no problem. International clays Winchester primers and clay buster wads. I think maybe 10 plus reloads with no problem. Let it rip.

    Blue Magics and RXP's use a 209?

    Plastic lasts 800 years. You should have no problem loading them as longs as they are not split.

    Well, i loaded a hundred test loads and shot them and they were perfect. I used W209 primer 19 grains Green Dot and a Fig 8 wad. I thought they loaded and shot beautiful with this mixture. Thanks for the help guys.-----Matt
