    Scored a VERY large trash bag of these, once-fired. Same recipes as the STS/Nitros?

    Thanks!

    I Think they are better than sts. You can reload them more times. Use the same recipe.

    I have a large quantity of these as well. What are they called? Are they similar to the "Blue Magics"?

    Great Score!

    The Premier or the RTL (Remington Trap Load) is still my favorite hull... seemed to use a stiffer plastic material, but as Rick mentioned, my experience also found them to hold up better than the STS/Nitro hulls... the RTL/Premier was the hull I learned to load, before the STS came out...

    However, that said, they do get a bit ugly looking as you continue to reload them... and while stiffer, I never found them to be that difficult to crimp in my progressive loader...

    Steve, While I never loaded Blue Magics, from all outward appearances, they appear to be identical... similar to the STS and Nitros... same head stamp and outside printing - just a color change IMO...

    Thanks, I loaded a few and they seamed to crimp fine.
    On the other hand, the primer seamed to not seat all the way and catches occasionally----a little tap on the hull at the second station seems to be working.

    <blockquote><I>"Remington Premier. They are a bear to crimp!"</I></blockquote>...and the primers go in easily but are sometimes stick when it's time to get them out.

    Other then the primer sticking the first time you reload them they are a great hull and seems like you have to lose them to get rid of them cause they never wear out.

    Funny story about these empties. I was headed to the truck after shooting and saw a guy walking to the dumpster with a large trash bag. He could hardly carry it. I asked him what he was doing, and he immediately got scared and apologized for bring trash from home and dumping it in the club dumpster. I told him if things were that tight at home, don't worry about it. I picked up the bag to help him, and it sounded like empties. I inquired and he told me it was just a bunch of old empties he had in his garage for years (probably 3000 of them). I diverted the bag to the back of my truck.

    Thanks for the help in guiding me on my "find".

    These hulls load like the Rem Premier hulls. They seem to last forever. Les.

    The blue peters hulls load well also. Lots of reloads from them. Load the same as nitros, sts's, gun clubs.

    Never had it happen to me, but I've seen more than a few Blue Magics blow in half about 1/4 inch above the brass. Many times reloaded. Just about every time they were loaded with 700X and a AA wad. I used 16.5 RD & an RXP wad. Great 16 yard load.

    I've been using the TGT-12 in all of my Remington hulls from Game Loads to Gun Clubs to Mean Greens to STS. No problems at all.
