I have come in to a supply of these and was wondering if anyone has reloaded them yet. Also have some of the AA orange tracker hulls. Thanks for any help as my manuals don’t have information on them.

GLangley,

I wouldn't pay any attention to the stuff about these hulls being not reloadable.....heck most of the hulls we have now are not "suitable for reloading".


Like I explained on the other thread, cut the hull in half length wise and see what you are working with. If you are unsure after cutting it in half, post a picture and we'll see what we can do.

We are reloading shotshells, not building a nuclear accelerator.

The only thing wonderful or unique about those Winchester AA Diamond Grade shells is the 8% antimony shot. The hull, primer, powder and wad will be the same old stuff we have been working with for almost the last 30 years.

The jury is still out on the question whether these hulls are the same on the inside as the AAHS. The information available on the Win website suggests they are not the same. If they are not, they still can be reloaded, the question is with what data.

Did you call Hodgdon? Did you call Alliant?

We have all seen this movie before, going right back to Browning BPT Performance hulls, by Olin. They aren't designed to be reload-able, nor are Winchester AA Diamond grade . . . according to Olin.

There is hardly any reason to bother with them when Gun Club hulls are essentially free, and there are plenty of better hulls: Remington American Clay & Field and of course STS / Nitro 27 hulls. You can struggle to reload junk hulls if you wish, some do, but there isn't much point to it.

Thank you all for the replies. I’m not in any hurry to reload them as I have enough AA hulls all ready.
