I'm loading NEW Cheddite Hulls (come with primers) from Graf $ Sons, get Super Crown Crimp Starter #0740007 8pt & #072SG16 wads from Ballistic Products, these load 1oz. shot great in not only Cheddite but Fiocchi and Remington Game Load hulls also--with Longshot powder at 1300FPS. Various Recipes from Hodgdon Loading Data Website. I also use Cheddite primers. RIO's won't load well at all-I gave up on them and don't even try.

Winchester Compression Form cases in 16 gauge are BEST if you can find them, but have been OUT-OF-PRODUCTION for about 30 Years. They were actually AA's. I'm lucky-I've got about 4000 I'm still loading.

Hope This Helps

Thanks for the info StoutStuff.
Much appreciated. I will keep my eye out for some the Winchesters.
There are some out there somewhere.

Thanks again,

Buy the Cheddite 1 ounce hulls at Graf and Sons, if they still carry them, they are really the best now available. Multiple reloadings, generally 5-7, before they fail. You can also use Remington 1 1/8 ounce hulls but you have t0 put a 28 gauge OP wad underneath to get the right crimp. I also have used 2-3 of the 28 gauge OP wads to load 7/8 and 3/4 ounce loads, respectively, for dove hunting. Federal/Estate empties reload nicely but only last for 3-4 reloadings. I've never had any problems reloading any cases on my Grabber with these components. Remington makes a 1-ounce wad but they won't sell any of them. I know as I have bought bags of the 1 1/8th ounce wads and found white wads mixed in with them which worked perfectly with 1 ounce of shot. If you are really interested in the Winchester Blue Wads, the original, not the clones, I have nearly a case of them I am selling. The whole case only, in the original Winchester shipping carton, about 19 plus bags, but they aren't cheap.

Some time ago Recob's was getting special shipments of Remington one ounce wads. At the time I think their minimum order from Remington was 100,000 wads. I picked up a case of 5000 and use them in all of the various hulls I have or scrounge. So far, so good.

One of my great finds was a lot of 1000 once fired paper 16 gauge hulls. Been cutting them down, loading them and then roll crimping with a special home made overshot card. Have to do some re-waxing too, but they end up looking fine as frogs' hair.

I love to load the old paper shells! The only thing better than loading them is shooting them....oh the smell. It's wonderful. I am hoping to find some of the old paper hulls. Someone out there has some just laying there I am positive. Thanks for the post.
