Depending on the caliber of your brass, some of it is much more sought after than others. However, there is almost always somebody looking for even the most common sizes.Hope this isn't a hijack, but got a question:
I don't reload. Is it worthwhile to collect and ship the used cases for any of the folks that do?....
I think Winchester has now remedied the issues with their AAHS hulls. I haven't loaded any of the AAHS hulls in 12 ga recently, but I very please with new 28 ga AAHS hulls I've been reloading.getting close on the shot shell stuff.
I got 8 more flats of AA's loaded and boxed.
it took forever for me to box them yesterday, I don't really care for the new hulls.
for some reason American hull lengths are all over the place.
the STS hulls are still good and the federal brass head plastic base hulls are okay.
the gold medal hulls sometimes have an issue with the hull getting cut right above the brass head.
I'm about ready to stick to the foreign made hulls at this point.
I've never tried reloading the Rio 12 gauge hulls. We sell a lot of the Rio shells at our gun club. Now days with price of shot as high as it is, and cheap shellsdang.
I have about 8-9K Rio 12ga. hulls I load and shoot pretty regularly. [alternate with Cheddite 8 point hulls]
I get 3-4 loads out of them without even trying.
I usually toss them at 3 and just pick up more off the ground at the club.
With the .410 and 28 gauge shells the saving are well worth the time.everyone complains about the cost and how they can buy them cheaper.
they do have a point depending on what you buy.
some of the lower priced shells are just that,, lower priced and should be priced even lower than they are.
and some of them are a pretty good bargain for what you get.
I have a pretty good thing going on for shot prices and do my best to pick up a bag every month sometimes two or more if I have the money.
I'm getting reloads that are just below premium antimony percentage shells but keep the costs down by picking up those discarded hulls, and some pretty judicious shopping for wads and powder.
I'm matching the federal Grand's pretty easily with my reloads for about 1/2 their cost.
plus what else am I gonna do with 3 Ponsess Warrens?
they are paid for so I might as well use them.
