Their only real value is for heavy hunting loads. The cases are so voluminous as to be a very poor choice for standard target and lite Field loads. Federal wads will work in them, but only in the heavier shot loads. Guilandi makes wads that fit somewhat better, but they are also expensive.

With their limited use factor being what it is, they are NOT worth any sort of premium price, and I for one wouldn't give over a nickel each for them. There just isn't that much need for Heavy Field loads these days. Standard Domestic hulls will reload any payload up to 1-1/4 oz., and there's little need for anything heavier.

I reloaded Activs when they were popular back in the mid-80s. As noted Federal wads work well and I always found it easy to work up 1oz. & 1 1/8oz. loads with them.
