    I won a case of Fiocchi Paper shells. Does anyone have any experience with reloading these hulls?

    Yes! they load great. Just like you were loading a Federal paper. Use the same wad as you would loading federal, I use claybuster 12SO or 12S3

    Flip you should read my post again........there is a difference between "shells" & "hulls" you know. LOL

    Sounds like I will shoot these & toss the empties in the trash.

    If you are already set-up for loading Fed Papers, re-loading FioP for a (as in one) practice round makes sense, and the recipes are the same, but the feel is not.

    (New) Fio papers load great, but hull life is not good.
