    You can reload just about any hull. The Super Target hulls are no exception. Just use the AA data. Part of the reason you won't see many people reloading them are, the steel base and the plastic seems thinner thus they just don't last for many reloads. If you want to reload them, I would suggest reloading them once and then toss 'em.

    grntitan has it right, also they have a tendency to buckle about 1\2 way up from the metal head & bulge right at the crimp if everything isn't just right. If you prefer straight wall hulls (JMO) Fed. G.M.s are the best I've found. Ross Puls

    What I have found is to use one size larger wad for the reloading of these Super Targets. (1 1/8 oz wad for 1 oz loads, ect) and they load fine....

    I have loaded a bunch with 1-1/8oz, win209, 21.5g Green dot, and a blue duster wad. I have reloaded them 5 or 6 times on a MEC 9000.

    Thanks for the info.I had been reloading Remington's with red dot powder and clay buster cb1100-12 wads and 209 primers with no problems using a Mec.jr loader.I had loaded a few thousand .When I started to load the Winchester SuperTarget hulls the crimps are not right because the wads don't press down far enough.

    The early ones from the mid-90's were my favorite shells for reloading. I also carried my highest Singles 98.28 with 'em. The newer ones tend to buckle easy so I'm no longer interested in trying!!
