• As you can see i've updated to version 2 of the software which is a complete change from the old. I am working to get everything back to normal as fast as possible.

    If you notice anything missing, strange or just plain out of sorts please let me know so I can address that. I've tried my best over the past few days to address most of what I see that needed fixing but I am 1 person.

    If you are a member of ANY other sub groups and I have missed that PLEASE let me know and I will get that avatar and subgroup fixed ASAP.

    Again, I thank you for your patronage and most of all your patience.

    Sincerely,

    Andy

Cheddite hulls and powder leak

Just started to load up come 12ga 2 3/4" shells with greendot powder. I noticed that there is a very slight bit of powder leaking past the WAA wad in the hull, they are clear. I was wondering if that's anything to be concerned with at all. I've not done a lot of reloading with clear hulls so this is a new surprise for me. I am used to Remington once fired so I never see the powder or internals. Hopefully they will be ok because I have 50 of them like that.

I wouldn’t worry about it, the worst thing that could happen is you getting inconsistent loads, bang, bang, pop.

Next time you’re at the range grab some different cases & try/test the wads for seal/fit in them & go with the tightest fit. I only reloaded WW-AA cases for shotguns & never had any problems.

Thank you for the info Forrest. BTW, my first response got lost some how. :confused:

I bought these at Cabelas because I did not have any at all yet and was not able to get any once fired hulls. I tested them and they seem to be a snug fit. Here is a picture of the issue and this is probably one of the worse ones. As long as they work I guess perhaps the second round might be better as I can size them then, they came already primed.
