When I shot trap on a regular basis and reloaded my own, I only used Winchester low brass paper hulls.

They should still be OK to shoot, unless they got wet and swelled up.

Brand new. Boughtnatbthe vintage shotgun show and shoot in kent co. Manufacturer was there selling. I asked how well they worked and of course they said it was all they ever shot. I never have 16s when i need them, so i bought them. Turqoise blue hulls. Canít remember the brand.

How does reloading paper differ from plastic? Do you use fiber disc wads instead of plastic shot cups? A friend gave me a box of new Federal shells that I'd like to shoot and reload. Love the smell of fired paper shells!

George Costanza disagrees.

Water tends to shrink things.

They reload just like plastic. I'd have to pull out my recipe book to give you the entire list of components but they are slightly easier that plastic hulls. I also think they pack more uniformly and give you better consistency. But like with any handload, you need to pattern your shot to see exactly how well it performs.

I understand they generate lower pressure so less recoil too? I'd imagine extra care has to be taken with crimping?
