    Thank you, SirMissalott. That's what I thought.

    Sometimes I think they reload better and longer than their STS.

    Some are 6 point crimped, if that matters to you. Mark

    Just use a cone crimp starter and you will be fine... or ... you can send me all the 6 pointers!

    I reload them the same as the premium hulls with no problems. I reload the 6 and 8 points the same. I use a hull color code system to the way I reload. The black Remmies are used for my skeet shells, 8 1/2 and 9 shot. They are a pretty popular hull that hits the ground/bucket at most clubs. The bases are a gold/brass wash steel base. The only draw back is that a steel base shell does not hold as good of a memory ae brass shells do but don't let that worry you too much. I don't think it is that much harder on your press.

    I've been reloading them for years. I've had some of them longer than I've had some of my relatives. I use the same data as the Remington Gun Clubs and STS's. They load great. And I too use different colored hulls to keep track of my loads. The black Remingtons get 1 1/8 of #8's @ about 1175 fps. Great 16 yard trap loads. Are they reloadable, has a bear got hair....

    I think the black Remingtons and green gun clubs are more durable that the STS cases. Not quite as pretty though.

    tripod, I would agree 100%. What I find the GC and black beauties good for also is if you happen to shoot an auto for sporting, 5-stand and wobble there are times when you run into the possibility of not getting your hulls back or it's just a pain in the a$$ to hunt them down. I feel better loosing them prematurly.
