Does anyone here know what kind of shell the Herter's sixteen gauge shells sold by Cabela's were? I have a number of flats of them and would like to reload them, but I can't find any information about them anywhere I've looked.

I would have guessed they were Cheddite hulls, but without knowing for sure, I'm stymied.

Thanks.

They are cheddite hulls. .
I get a couple reloads out of them, then the crimps start splitting.

Thanks.

Dale: I have three flats of them, so even if I only get two reloads out of each, that's a lot of shooting for 16 gauge side by side.

The ones posted and others I've gotten elsewhere seem to be a bit stiffer plastic than the Herters, might be thicker if measured. I've had pretty good luck with them, but nowhere near as reloadable as the AA or Premiere type hulls.

They are the best out there for cutting down to 2 9/16" and roll crimping. They load nice. MB

I agree the Herters 16 hulls are Cheddite but does anyone have any experience with finding a primer that fits tight enough? I have a bunch of them that I have not tired to reload and was expecting to use Cheddite primers however.....I have recently seen a number of 12 ga. Cheddite hulls were they must have used some other Euro primer that was oversize and therefore Cheddites frequently fall out.

Euro hulls can be different.
Give the Curmudgeon a call at BPI. He will set you straight.

After using Fiocchi primers, I could install Winchester primers with my thumb. I would never use those shells in a semi auto or pump. BPI does sell a tool to make the primer pocket smaller.
