    Need some help, How do you tell the difference between a staight wall hull and tapered hull. Is there a way to see it or measure it. Thanks Mike K.

    Yes. Take a Stanley knife & cut down the length of the hull to the brass. Make 2 cuts about 180 degress apart & then fold & cut along the brass head.
    This will reveal all the internal construction & show you just how a wad will fit & look in a hull. One of the best loading tricks you can do.

    Winchesters, Remington STS, 27's, Game Loads, Gun clubs, are tapered. Federal Gold Medal, Top Guns, Estates, and most Europeans are straight. I'm sure there are more brands of each. RunGun is right, slice the hull from the crimp to the base. A tapered hull, the plastic will start to get thicker toward the base. A straight walled hull will have the same thickness top to bottom.

    If you use a coarse grained powder it will eliminate the powder migration problem that results from using the wrong wad. HMB
