Really!!?? Makes perfect sense to me. And the part about what’s picked up and what’s left behind is in fact factually correct.

Casonet, if you take a Win. HS hull apart you will see that there is a very smooth taper on the base wad and there is not a lip, any Win. or Rem. type wad slides to the top of the powder very nicely.

I have, and some of the early ones weren’t that way

I can honestly say I have never had a wad stick on the base wad of any of the HS hulls, nor on any of the earlier Super Handicap hulls without the HS on the brass, they had a black base wad, I've even loaded some of the cheap Target Loads with the steel head and all loaded quite nicely, maybe I am just lucky or this is a non-issue !!!!

Probably more of a non issue but it has happened to me. Resulting in a cocked wad

How do you know this? Did you cut the shell open and view the cocked wad? Or did you assume the wad was cocked from something else about the shell?

Yes, Nebs! I did cut it open and thats what I found. I noticed the bulge on the side which prompted the investigation. I’m not making this up. I even had a base wad come lose on an early one before Olin made changes to eliminate that problem.

Casonet, I do believe you, where was the bulge in your hull? I have seen a slight line around where the top of the base wad is and when I examined it in a dark room with a flashlight the wad always seemed to be compressed concentrically.

This happened years ago. I do recall that the hulls werent stamped HS on the brass head and unlike current production, there was a black line box around the AA on the side of the hull. When I got a basewad separation, I discarded them.

Left well used HS basewad Right once fired GA stamped basewad. I picked several of these brand new GAs out of the bucket yesterday. They had factory primers in them so you have to be aware that you'll still come across them from someones stash.

A lot of answers here are assuming 12 gauge.

On the 28 gauge win AA CF vs win AA HS, you have to use a different wad.

12 gauge AAHS and AACF do NOT load the same, no matter what any handbook says.

With 1.0 ounce loads, I use 1.0 ounce wads with AACF and also any Remington hulls, but have to use 1-1/8 ounce wads with AAHS hulls. Otherwise I get tenting and shot leakage with the
AAHS.

I think that AACF and Remington Gun Clubs are better hulls for reloading. They last longer too.
