I load on a 9000G, and my question is:
Do the Fed Papers require any special or additional prep prior to Station 1 ?

Reason I ask: I have a MEC Case Conditioner that I am about to sell since I have never used it. I would hate to sell it, only to need it shortly later for Fed Papers.

"You need to inspect each shell for pin hole burn through's after the first reloading,around the top of the brass base where the paper starts and also,along the seam of the paper case." Creeker is right on! I dont heat them or anything else. I dont even change the crimper on my PW. I get factory looking shells. I would hate to go back to plastic again

I don't see a reason to remove them before final crimp. That's kind of an extra step that is not necessary. Instead take your tapper crimp and move it up and let the machine do the work. But maybe that is what you meant.

I have never thought about not using the pre crimp. I'll have to try that.

I am happy to hear about so many others using Fed Papers to reload. I hope they are seeing increased popularity and Federal recognizes that. 5 years ago I NEVER saw papers on the ground at a shoot. This past year I saw lots on the ground, to point where you could pick up the ones that looked good and pass over the ones that didn't.

I agree with Bryan. If papers and AA's/STS cost the same, why not shoot new papers? Then you have a nice stash of paper hulls to reload:)

PS- Already have a crap-ton of STS hulls from when they were $5-$6 per box. So whatever mood strikes is what I load.

I am with EXFEDEX above. I load with a 9000. I remoeve the grimp starter adn put on the smooth domed crimp started and go to town. I do like Creeker say and I do inspect every hull before I put it into my reloader. At the first sign of pin holes I mark the base of tgeh shell with a sharpy or marks-a-lot marker. This way I see the marks on it when I load the sheel Then it is "shoot it and drop it" I just had a fellow trap shooter give me two big garbage bags of once fired paper hulls from the early 80"s. What a great friend to have. I love shoting my paper reloads. Bill how is Boog doing?
