    Hi all
    I have some Hevishot hulls I’m curious if they are worth Reloading or just junk them? If they are worth Reloading what hulls do they cross reference?
    Thank you

    Usually they are Cheddite hulls however some I have run across seem to be RIO hulls. RIO's will have a larger primer pocket than Cheddites. if a Cheddite primer pushes in and bottoms easily with finger pressure then they are probably RIO's if you can't seat a Cheddite primer all the way with finger pressure then they are Cheddite hulls. That's the easiest way I know how to tell them apart.

    I have used the hevi shot and hevi metal hulls with RSI 131 with great success.was able to work it up to 90% at 40 consistently in all my shotguns.but I don't get many reloads from the hulls. Typically 2 before they are pitched.
