There are three one piece hulls made in the world that I know of. They are all 12 gauge hulls. Remington GC/STS/Nitro, Federal Gold Medal/Grand and the Federal w/.090" basewad. All most none have ...

I put hulls in a dark plastic bag (dog poo bag) and left it on the dash of the truck, parked facing the sun. Too hot to hold in a couple hours. Sizing was much less effort to beyond the lower limit. A ...

I think mine might with the original square section spring. Pre-war, so 80 years old? It has zero lbs of preload, meaning pushing the barrel forward. Perhaps if you look for my past posts, you'll find ...
