They are pretty nice, I wish they were more waxy though. They swell pretty bad in the duck blind, and I ended up going back to reloading plastic. Maybe the new ones will hold up better.

I wonder if anyone has ever sprayed the exteriors of them with water repellent, like Nikwax, scotchgard, or ReviveX. Never thought of trying that until now.
You can put them in the oven at 150 degrees (my wife's oven is a measured 145 degrees on the "Warm" setting) to redistribute the wax and take the swelling out of the hulls. I tried it with 75 once-fired Federal hulls last week, leaving them in the oven for an hour and a half, and it totally removed the swelling. I was surprised that there was little to no odor when doing this.
