Weigh the Barrel empty and full then weigh one hull and do the math.

That’s assuming they’re all of one type, same size base and......you get the idea. Besides, he didn’t offer a prize so I’ll just watch.Weigh the Barrel empty and full then weigh one hull and do the math.

55 gallons worth would total 24,200, give or take.

A standard 32 gallon garbage can holds around 3000 hulls. So a 55 gallon barrel would hold ~ 5200.

Assuming your first statement is correct, the total for 55 gallons is way off. Better go back to math class.

I get 600 reloads in a Home Depot 5 gal bucket.

Let’s start a pool. Winner gets half the hulls. (Assuming they’re AA or STS) I guess 5136.

Let’s see, 11 times 440 = 4840. WTF!

4840 is the correct answer unless you multiply 440 x 55.

I thought those buckets from the home centers were actually 6 gallon buckets.

He would probably fill the barrel with water and then use his mathification to tell you how many.

Around 5000. I used to have a barrel full of pressure-tested STS hulls. They had a small indent just above the base. Finally got tired of moving things around that barrel (I stopped reloading in 1978) so gave it to the Rockingham Gun Club when I moved from NC to TX.Was wondering if anyone had a number on how many 2.75"/12ga hulls a 55gal barrel will hold?

Since he said "hulls", and he tends to be a pretty straight shooter, (pun intended) it's a safe assmuption he meant hulls.

I'll say 5137.
