COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: What hulls are classified as tapered case hulls?A: Remington gun clubs, nitro 27, STS and high velocity; Winchester compression formed (old-style) and HS hulls are all tapered hulls.
Q: What is the correct crimp depth for a shotgun shell?A: The correct crimp depth for a 12 gauge shell is .055 deep.
Q: Why is crimp depth important?A: A crimp depth of .055 deep will keep a consistent chamber pressure, and make for a more stable reload in all temperatures.
Q: How much wad pressure do we need to use? A: None. Shotgun shell powder manufactured today requires zero wad pressure to perform correctly.
Q: Are all shotgun shell primers interchangeable?A: No. Each primer has its own load data for each powder.
Q: I can't find data for the primers that I have.A: Contact the powder manufacturer for the type of powder you are using.
Q: May I use steel shot with wads designed for lead shot?A: No, because wads designed for lead shot will not protect the barrel from steel shot.
