Default 10 gauge shotgun hulls

Does anyone have any idea what the difference is between Federal and Remington hull, beside color? Thanks!

One says federal and the other says Remington. And now I move out of the way for serious answers.

I don't know what makes the difference other than quality but I have noticed that some are better than others when reloading. The cheaper ones will crack and expand to the point that the extractor will tare the brass off and still not extract the spent hull. 20 cents per round shots r cheap n good for skeet shooting put are useless if used for reloading.

Moved to the Ammunition and reloading area.

Internal volume will vary some. Always use published data as people with more sofisticated equipment have already worked out most of the hurdles for us.

Not knowing how much loading experience you have I will give some basic info. One piece, compression formed hulls are the most desirable. Multi piece hulls have plastic or fiber base wads severly limit the available space and can work loose causing a bore obstruction if loaded too many times.

As a general rule, I will not load such multi piece hulls more once. There are too many higher quality hulls available.

What would be an example of a brand of hull that shouldn't be reloaded more than once? Federal, Remington, etc.?

Every maker has good hulls and cheap hulls. The rule of thumb I use it if it has a smooth plastic body, it is probably a good hull. If it has a ribbed plastic body, it probably is a cheap hull.

The exception I have seen is Federal High Brass #4's and buckshot. Most of those are one piece compression formed hulls
