You are a wise man to go with the gold medals instead of the new junky AA's
ok I love the old ribbed gold medals the best but im sure the smoothies are just as good I just never reloaded them so I can't comment on them.

You will get 2 times more reloads out of the gold medals at least over the Winchester AA's I used to load them all and I kept track of 100 gold medal's and marked them every time when loaded and the average was 15 times and with Winchester AA's maybe 6 or 7 times before the shot would start to puke out.

Anyway just wated to say you are a wise man.

Some GM's are junk. Do not load more than 4 times.

I had two hull separations last weekend - one had the hull lodged at the forcing cone. Could have blown up the gun (K-80).

I have had about 6 hull separations so far. I have 2000 more of these hulls loaded and I am using them for practice and ditching them.

I prefer the AA's as they will crack at the crimp or split lengthwise if you push them too long.

Two friends who were long time Federal fans have had similar problems even with new shells last year. Federal had problems a while back.

Be cautious.
