    What kind of data/loads are you using with these hulls(remington,or federal for that matter)? I took a quick peek at Hodgdon's,of course I couldn't find any slug loads for Federal 3".Lot's of different hulls!!

    I had given thought to that as well.If you have a roll crimp,which,in my case is a trimmed 2 3/4,which ends up about 2 1/2 before the roll.Is the wad snagging and tearing the petals on the chamber,which for me is 3".That's quite some travel...

    Right now I use gold medal hulls and have on hand trap commander,12s0,12s3,and 12s4 wads.I have some fairly accurate loads worked up.But roll or fold crimp,I still get torn petals.That's when I get a flyer.If I'm deer hunting,will that be the flyer...

    Put them in a zip lock,add a slice of apple or two.Give it a day or so.That's the way my granddad did his pipe tobacco and I keep a slice in my humidor.

    If the headstamp reads "Gold Medal",then should it not be gold medal?

    If you were picking a hull to reload slugs...for instance Lee key drive. What hull would you choose? Straight wall or tapered? Remington or Federal? And why would you choose what you chose? (ain't sure about that sentence).

    Rancher,that's what I've been doing.I push until there is no rattle.But overnight they will develop a rattle.I've tried different wad heights,but I either get a pooched or collapsed crimp.Which is one of the reason's I like the roll crimp. I have...

    not seated against powder,and part of base distorted,like it caught on something.I did make some changes.Not using press to seat wad and slug.I made a gauge (pencil line on a dowel) to help with all seating the same.So far that has helped..some.Of...

    Opened some shells yesterday,most wads were compressed or distorted in some way.Decided that using the press for install is a no go,will just insert with finger pressure. I have checked BPI,but no real answer.Is there an aftermarket hull that is...

    I like the look of a roll crimp.That combination,which I got from you,thanks again BTW.Is a really accurate one,in my gun.But how does the crimp effect the wad migration? If that is the "word" I'm searching for.And if that is actually what it is...
