    I hate to throw these in the trash, figure they'd be good for one to two reloads using Downrange DRF3 or XXL's
    Is there a difference in their makeup, they appear similar, looking to use the same load and components for both.
    Comments.

    They're the same hull, different in name only.

    I think you'll find the only difference is that the Estate is about 1/16th inch deeper and is more prone to splitting around the crimp roll area.

    I reload them two times then pitch them. They are my favorite shell, I have shot my best scores with them (reloads) I use the claybuster 12SO clone wad for 1 oz.

    I have found no difference between the Estates and Top Gun's.
