12 gauge rxp hulls

I am new to reloading and have a question. I have a bunch of 12 ga blue rxp hulls and can't find them in my reloading book. Any help or good recipes with clays powder. Or is this hull the same as another that is in my book. Thanks.

the RXP hull can be loaded using current data for STS. If memory serves me correctly they are from the 1970s & were a good hull i loaded many of them, blues & greens are the same. Don't know if they may become brittle with age??

I still have a few left but don't think i'll load them just save them for memories. Ross Puls

The RXP hulls were Green for Remington and Blue for Peters. The Blue Peters RXP hulls are NOT the "Blue Magic" hulls. The RXP shells were from the 70's and are about identical in dimensions with the RXP hulls. The STS loading data should be close enough. I have a bunch of "NEW" RXP primed hulls, factory shells, and once fired empties, not to mention a bunch of hulls loaded a few times or more. They work about as well as new STS hulls for loading. I'm just a little more careful about the hull inspection when loading them.

I have reloaded blue and green RXP's for years. They are a good hull but some have primer pockets that are undersized for modern 209 primers. I have run across some batches that work fine but many won't allow a Win. 209 or Fiocchi to seat all the way. I would test a few before you go into volume reloading with these.

I have loaded thousands of them and they are a very good hull. I never had any problem using 209 size primers with them. Perhaps someone may have them confused with the Remington field hulls of the time with used the smaller Remington 57 primer. At any rate they are good for many many reloads from the same hull.--Firekiller, if you would like, tell me what powder and shot weight you would like to use and I will E-mail some of the old data from my Lyman manual to you.
