You need plastic hulls, with real brass. and an 8 star crimp. I know most crimpers go to 6 star with the twist of the wrist. Most shells that are 6 star from the factory are very poor quality. I am sure there are exceptions but I can't think of any off hand.

What you NEED is quality hulls. Winchester AA's, Remington STS, etc, Federal Gold Medal are on the top of the heap.

I use almost exclusively AA's just because I have a seemigly endless supply. I do have a little over 600 Gold Medals I have been hording that I now realize I will never get around to needing. I could be talked out of them.

Robocop is right on with his hull selection. Store bought ammo for my 28 ga is expensive. I buy once fired AA hulls by the 100. I never have any problem with any of them. I expect to get 3 or 4 uses from a hull, sometimes I get many more. if you see any high brass hulls laying around pick them up. They function well and you can reload them quite a few times. High brass hulls are more difficult to resize but they will not harm your equipment. Make sure any high brass hulls you reload are brass. I have never tried to reload a steel case hull. I can foresee to many problems.

steel head reloads just fine, I have loaded hundreds of slugs back in Remington Gun Clubs, Sport Load, and hundreds of 00 buck in Federal Top Gun hulls.

The fact is that it’s the plastic make up that makes a good reloadable shell. Remington Gun Club is a good example. They take the identical load data as STS/Nitro 27 because the construction is the same internally, the plastic is good for multiple reloads and the steel head can be sized many times over the time the plastic starts splitting.

Federal Top Gun(breast cancer edition),buffered, 10 pellet 00 buck 1 1/4 oz , 10 yard target....never a problem I didn't create





And there is nothing wrong with ESTATE as long as you load them back correctly.
