Hi

I have been reloading my 28ga STS hulls for a bit (actually I am getting my hobbies back after the wife of 39 years walked out) and have observed that the crimped part of the hull burns and gets torn up after a couple reloads.  It becomes so weak that it won't hold the crimp and it bulges out and opens up.

I have decided to try the AA-HS hull.  I have read that I need to buy some AA-HS wads and guess there is more room in the HS hull that the STS.  I have tons of STS that I need to use up so I have been loading the STS and leaving them at the SC course.

How are you all doing with your 28 ga loads.

PS.  I only load to shoot sporting clays, skeet and a bit of trap.  This is not for hunting.

Thanks

I've noticed that burning on AA HS hulls also. Not sure why. Been using Unique in both the 28 and 12ga and just moderate trap loads nothing hot. My experience with the 28 isn't nearly what I have in loading 12ga AA's. The 12's last 7-8 reloads the 28's 5-6. Of course it has to be the expensive ones that don't last...

I've been using STS case's and 5 or 6 reloads is about it. Also have a couple hundred old AA's I haven't broke into yet. A guy I know brought me a few of those AA-HS shells and I'm not real sure what they are. Are they compression cases or is that a base wad I see in them? BTW, those AA-hs wads worked for me in the STS hulls but don't in the old AA's. Claybuster makes a replacement wad for the old AA.

hi Don Fischer
I will cut a new AA-hs hull. i do understand that they are compression, one piece hulls but after I make the cut I'll give you a yell.

Thanks
Jeff

Has any one used the 20/28 powder for the 28?

I have one and a loader but have not gotten started on it yet. I was needing to know what powder to buy for it.
My Lyman shotgun load book is old and does not have any new powders in it. I have sts shells so I will find out how they work . I would like to buy some Win AA If I can find any for sale.
It is good to hear from others on loading the 28.
thanks

I see a lot of guys on the trap line who pull out the old hull and in the same motion drop the next in the barrel and stand with the action open but shell in barrel until their turn. I try to hold my shell in my hand until the shooter to my left has fired and then drop it in the barrel, close the action, mount and call for the bird. This allows my barrel some breathing time to keep the heat down and also keeps my hulls from warming up prior to firing. Maybe I'm crazy but I think I get less burnt looking case mouths and more reloads per case. Rockydog

I have looked for this stuff for a while, but have yet to spot a single lb.

Have you checked the prices at Able Ammo by any chance?

There's a fair selection there, and some pretty good prices on several brands.  The price on 28Ga. stuff is always scary.

I've been using Universal Clays for my 28ga, and still have quite a few of the old AA hulls I am using. I only use the 28ga for quail and grouse so i don't burn through them fast. My friend Mike Schmidt said that the new AA hulls are not a one piece, and he switched to Remington STS ammo. I am not sure if this applies to the 28ga or just the 12 and 20
