I am needing 200 or 300 high brass hulls. Needing them for squirrel hunting.

Why high brass?

The height of the brass has nothing to do with reloading hulls. It is what the inside is that matters.

Yep, and low brass is easier to reload

I found an empty box and 25 hulls of the old ACTIV "no brass" hulls in the shop. I'm saving them for a special occasion. I have no idea what kind of occasion, but they are an interesting oddity to me. They were some of the first hulls I ever reloaded.

I use to shoot sporting clay when I was younger. I got out in the shed looking around. I have over 5 garbage full of the old active hulls. There all once fired too. All 12ga mostly all red with some orange ones. When I was shooting the range bought 95% active ammo. U wouldn't believe all the hulls I seen thrown away.

You don't need "high brass" for hunting loads; there is no difference in capacity, pressure limits, etc. between high and low.

I bet somebody would be happy to trade you some 12ga. ACTIV hulls for some Remington Gun Club or Winchester AA 20ga. hulls.

I find 20ga. Gun Club hulls at the local skeet club. They reload very well. I bet you can find some locally.

I am loading Activ 20 ga right now. Love those hulls. Using 17.5 gr of Herco, WAA20 wad and 7/8 oz of shot. Get 5-6 reloads before they’re fried. They are so easy to pick up with a magnet with the steel base. Terrific hull

Not much shotgun shooting around me most rifle. I have picked up some but they were Winchester super speed. I was told non reloadable. Would the federal top gun be a good one too load? The load I was looking at called for high brass. That's why I was looking for them. Cant find a good squirrel load around my area. 20ga 8 and 9 shot few 7.5 shot. I have loaded many active 12ga for sporting Clay and crow hunting.

You can load the Top Gun hulls.

Where did you get the load data that called for high brass? I just looked at the Hodgdon, Winchester, IMR and Alliant load data and there is no brass height mentioned in any of the hull selections...

A old book I got at a yard sell. The front is gone off of it . I did goto the rifle range the other day. I picked AA 20ga and Top gun hulls. The person was shooting them left them. I picked them up only a box of each. But they was still free.

Maybe you should "upgrade", things change, some loads go, new ones show up.
All powder manufacturers have on-line loading manuals.

These web sites are free and much more reliable:
