    Today I was down in my man-corner (my wife won't let me have a whole man-cave)loading up a bunch of Nitro-27 hulls. I always keep a telescoping magnet on my bench to allow me to pick up the occasional dropped primer or shell. As I was shuffling things around the magnet got pushed into a clump of loaded hulls sitting upright on my bench. As I go to remove it one of the loaded shells attaches to the magnet and comes out of the group. HUMMMMMM thats strange. 1 of the Nitro 27 hulls had a steel rim. I tried the other 20 or so on my bench and the magnet does not attach except to the primer as should be expected but this 1 hull most definitely has a steel base. As I said just a little thing to make you go Hummm.

    Sounds like the rare and elusive 5th man eliminator shell.

    The first Peters Blue that came out about the time Remington Premiers did were all Brass, had the top line figure 8 wad and some of the hardest shot on the market. Joe Ljutic called them the best kept secret in the shell market. I still have two full cases of the Brass shells. In my area it took about 6 months to switch to steel.
