    Yesterday at the skeet range, I picked up several Federal paper shell which had apparently been reloaded move than once or twice. The oddity was that several of the shells had four small holes, about 1/16 inch punched spaced symetrically about 90 degrees apart in the brass. Does anyone know of any reason why someone would do that, and then shoot the shell??? Herb Roach

    Did the holes go all the way thru the shell?

    Just wondering because that wouldn't function real well i wouldn't think. Got me stumped unless it was some sort of marking ID for the loader. Maybe it prevents the brass from swelling???

    Keeps the paper hull from separating from the brass. HMB

    Were these holes in the base (bottom) or side of the brass?
