    Does anyone reload the Walmart Federal Hulls and the Super Comp Estates? If so what are you using (power,primer,wad,etc.) Thanks

    Heck yes, I load the heck out of them. The SCTP kids shot a bunch of them, and I get the empties.

    I like most any primer, Cheddite, Fiocchi, Nobel, Rio, 19 gr Solo 1000, Claybuster CB3118-12AR and one ounce of your favorite shot. Works great.

    The same amount of Red Dot, Clays, Rex I, E3, Promo, etc will work fine.

    I agree with Shooting Coach. I have used a variety of wads, but found for me the 1 oz 12S0 or equivelent seems to work best. I use 18 gr of Clays, Claydot, or Promo and get approximarely 1200 fps. I now load once and toss. I found the primer pockets tended to loosen up too much after 3 reloads to firmly seat the primers, so instead of tracking the number of reloads, I'm a 1 and done person now. Bob K

    loaded many thousands of these. 700X or Promo powder. I like the Nobel Sport or Fiocchi or even the RIO primers. Downrange XXL-orange for 7/8 oz loads. Downrange DRF3 or XL-1 or Versalite for 1 1/8 oz loads
