As the title says, is it safe to reload targte-grade shotgun hulls? I currently only fire el-cheapo stuff through my 20 gauge since I'm a shotgun newbie. I've picked up all my hulls and bagged them. It's all Winchester SuperTarget or Sellier&Bellot stuff, originally #8 shot, 3/4oz charge.
If it is safe, do I not want to deviate from the original load when reloading? For example, avoid loading a slug into one of these hulls?
check to see if thay are a 1 or 2 pce hull tapered or not! in other words check your reloading manual its all there in black and white and some one has spent a bunch of time putting it all togeather a rule of thumb silver base-no brase base more than likley
I believe the Winchester Super Target hulls are essentially AA hulls. You can use the data from AA/Upland game loads. Look into the base of the hull (compare to the AA hull. Should be a one piece compression formed hull with no cardboard or plastic base wad.
The S&B? I have no idea. I do not recall seeing any data specific for these hulls.
Be very careful loading shot shells. Insure the internal dimensions are exactly like the one specified in the data.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
