Nick , I love the little loads I'm getting out of John's RGL's ... 2 good loads max and then the cases are split badly . Doesn't matter how deep the crimp . Maybe a case that goes 100 loads is the way to go !! let's see , 50 X 100 is ???

Bill shoot those hulls until the crimps go ratty , get a roll crimper off of eBay from Russia .
Cut off the hulls and roll crimp the next few loads , get the most out of the hulls .

I am very frugal with my 16 GA. Hulls .

Regards , Nick

Nick , not so much that the crimp goes bad - the case splits right down thru the crimp 1/3 down the case ! Like they are splitting down a mfg joint . Got a roll crimper - have been accused of being OVERLY frugal !! you should see some of my 410's !!

Bill,
I don't understand you only getting only 2 reloads out of those hulls, I know some only get 1 or 2 but I'm going to say that about 80% of them I can get 4-5 some times 6 reloads out of them, and the mouths are cooked by then.
Just my 2 cents worth

Griff

I contacted Bass Pro to see if they had any plans to re-introduce Herters to Cabelas stores, and this is the reply I received:

"Thank you for contacting basspro.com. Your business is truly appreciated. I do show that we still do have some Herter's ammunition active in our inventory stock. Unfortunately, these are out of stock and unavailable for order at this time. We expect replenishment from the manufacturer within the next 30 days, but have no guaranteed date. Please keep checking back with us online or by phone at 1-800-227-7776 for inventory availability."


Good to know they plan on re-stocking. Not sure what that means exactly though.
Confused

UPDATE !!


Dear Michael,

Thank you for contacting Bass Pro Shops regarding the Herters Select Field Dove and Quail 16 gauge ammo. Unfortunately we do not carry this ammo through Bass Pro Shops. I did contact Cabelas regarding this ammo and they do not have a estimated restocking date. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused you.

Please contact us again if you require further assistance.

Best regards,
Drake
