Default Remington gun club shotshells

Hey guys I recently got given 150 rds of gun club shells that are rusted from hurricane sandy.. My brother in law doesn't reload and figured I could take the shot for new rounds..

Now when I started taking them apart I started to think about the powder.. Can this be saved?

As of now the primers have seen better days but don't appear to be rusted or ruined.. I would much rather use the new fed 209a I have but I know I can't just swap them out..

I weighed 5 rds and got an average of 15.5 grains.. Now the real thing I'm trying to find out is what type of powder does Remington use in these rounds? I know they have the sts primers and that they are way lower in pressure and temp compared to the fed 209a..

What are your opinions? Use the primers and powder in new hulls? Powder with new primers at a lesser charge? Of just save the shot and wads and go from there?

Shoot them if they dont go off you can save the shot, Remington probably won't tell you what kind of powder they use.

Shooting them as they stand now is impossible, to much rust and 1200 buck shotgun don't mix lol.. U mean reload them with the same primer and load in another shell? Ill put some pics up later to show what shape they are in..

personally, i'd save the shot and ditch the rest. trying to unseat a primer is dicey at best without having it go off. not a good idea IMO. without knowing the exact powder and how they determined it for that load could be just as dicey. just my thoughts. just too many variables that trying to duplicate that load in another shell case, could have bad results.

+1 on shot salvage. Dump the powder on the lawn. It is high in nitrogen and a good fertilizer. Remington likely uses a custom formulation with no commercial canister equivalent

Here's what they look like.. Think ill just save the shot and wads.. Really don't know if the primers will even work..

You can pop them out rather easily.. Just go slow and wear glasses.. I did it to 50 others before but they and no rust around them..

Anyone got tricks to cutting these open faster? Going so slow with a knife..

You could just uncrimp them with a flat head screwdriver and then use neetle nose pliers to pull wad out if you wanted to save it.
