    I've got a bunch of the early, shorter WAA HS 28 gauge hulls. Are they worth the trouble to set up and load?
    Thanks,

    I had two cases of those early HS 28 gauge shells and most of the published loads would not fit into the hull and still allow for a decent crimp using the HS wads.. The load that finally did work well was using between 14.6 and 14.8 grains of Longshot. This powder is very dense so you can use a much smaller bushing for the powder charge and this gives enough room for good reloads.

    I load 11/16 oz in these hulls. Works great, cannot tell the difference in breaks.

    Likely you are shooting Skeetie or Baby Bore Sporting. No issue.

    As Gregg535 said longshot leaves enough room. Also, the claybuster HS wad takes up less volume compared to the Winchester HS. Kenny Bruggeman

    I'm trying to duplicate the sporting load. I don't think it'll happen with these hulls. I guess I'll get rid of them and use something else. Thanks for the info guys.

    You likely won't duplicate the Winchester sporting load with any length AA HS hull. When you finally get enough Pro Reach in the hull it won't crimp worth a darn. STS hulls are the way to go for 1300-1350 fps loads.
