Last week I was working as a Range Safety Officer when a club member asked if I wanted some empty shotgun shells. He was cleaning up after a three-gun shoot and knew I reloaded shotshells. I readily agreed and he reappeared with a pallet of plastic tubs and totes of mixed empty shells that had to number between 10 and 15 thousand cases. I set up my operation in a pole storage building and started sorting things out. I was only interested in Remington STS, Nitro 27 and Premier RXP cases and Winchester AA empties. Two hours later I had two clay pigeon boxes full of these cases. Looks like a lifetime supply. I hate it when that happens. Anyone need empty shotshell cases? The club holds these shoots every month. All the best...
Gil

I sure wish I was closer by, I would gladly take a bunch of those empty hulls! With the weather not being so hot right now, I'm already thinking about the shells I need to load before duck/goose season...

If you have a Clay Target Club nearby mate, they will always have heaps of hulls at the end of a day’s shooting, and would usually be happy to give them away.

As an aside, the plastic hulls can be chomped up into tiny pieces and used in vibrator style case cleaners. It’s not quite as good as walnut or corn media, but it works.

Hi Vince,

the clay target clubs I've been to around here are not too friendly, and not too welcoming to strangers or outsiders!

I have wanted to join a trap and skeet club for years, but the ones I've been to want an arm and both legs to let you join!

And hulls!?!? They would just as soon burn them before they let somebody outside the club have them.

there was something on news the other day about reusing plastic in making concrete......makes sense if you think about it...replace some or all the stone and sand with plastic chips...lighter and argueable just as strong in compression.... weird DS. they must be a funny bunch in your neck of the woods as most clay bird clubs are always looking for new members.

That is really strange mate. As Elvis said...Skeet and Trap Clubs out here are very welcoming, to the point of openly welcoming people for "try before you buy" shoots to see if they like the sport.

Having said that, I know that Skeet shooters in the US use all calibre shotguns... .410, 20g, 28g and 12g. There is a pretty reasonable market for once fired hulls in the US, especially the 410, 20's and 28's, so maybe they have a deal with someone to collect and sort the hulls to sell.

What hulls do you normally reload David...Winchester Compression or AA hulls, Remington STS hulls, Federal paper hulls or the two piece hulls of various makes (usually European brands)?

It usually comes down to $$$ and if you don't have a lot of it, you don't belong there! So that let's me out!

Vince - since I reload more for steel shot than anything else, my favorite hull to reload is 12 ga. Federal Gold Medal.
