    My kids have shot a lot of the Federal Top Gun loads and I was wanting to know how many times they could be reloaded?

    I don't use mine more than three or four times. I don't know how many times they "could" be reloaded. Don't want to push it far enough to find out.

    Hippie is right. You've got the goodie out of them after 2-3-4 loads.

    Depending on how thumppy you load, after a couple-3 of loads, you start to see some chipping and flaking of the basewad, and your crimps are softer.

    There seems to be an abundance of top gun and estate hulls at every club. With that said I reload them once and let them fly.
