I inherited a bunch of these in 12 and 20 ga, I vaguely remember a thread on them, but the search is not working on my computer. Are these any good for reloading?

Fantastic to reload. PM me for loading data if you need any. I load 12,16, and 20. Best of all, that steel in the base makes them a cinch to pick up with a magnet.

I have some Activ 12 gauge hulls. I primarily use them for specialty tungsten loads. It helps identify them. If you'd like to part with a few of the 20 gauge hulls, I'd be a buyer. Easily identified 20 gauge hulls is always a problem.

In any case, RSI has steel and tungsten data using their SAM1 wads. Also if you do a google search for castboolits & Activ hulls, it should come up with a couple links.

My 12-ga ACTIVs are my hull for my 1-5/8oz Snowball Short Magnum load, have been since the 1980s.

I don't have any 20's or I'd use them....
