No, if you're reloading and the crimp is there, they seem to just follow the existing crimp. No extra care at all. If anything, I think they crimp easier than a plastic hull.

Same recoil and pressure. Determined by load not hull material.

Paper hulls are still available. Go to Ballistic Products and search for "Paper Hulls":

I've found dozens of the rims of paper shells while metal detecting our property. Winchester being the most found. Wasn't aware they were still made.

Back in the early 80's, I was buying once fired paper hulls at the Loch Raven range for a penny a piece. If I were lucky, the guys would throw in the box too.

Anyone remember the reloading shop on Joppa Road? It's long closed, but that's where I'd buy my components and powder. I hated to see the place close.

paper hulls have run great in everything I've used them in. 870s, Benellis, etc.
