Anyone reloading these primed hulls? Any sizing, feeding, or ejection problems?

Post a link?

These hulls are recertified by BPI’s engineer. “Recertified” is defined as product that did not originally pass Federal’s first pass visual or product specification during shotshell production. However, these hulls have been sorted and recertified as components for reloading. These hulls are either in prime condition and have simply escaped the manufacturing process (i.e., fallen on the floor) or they might have minor visual imperfections. You may not see any issues at all.

When I was in college we saw a supply truck unloading food into the cafeteria. Some of the boxes said "Hamburger. Fit for human consumption."
I would place these hulls in the same category.

$0.05 for a hull/primer. Recertified, or for fit human consumption…

They are 20 cents per hull/primer. I would not buy them. But I suggest looking at the website every day and purchase some Cheddite or factory normal Federal hulls when they are available. In the last month I've placed 2 orders from them. Their inventory changes every other day. I've got 2.75" Cheddites from BPI that are in a Fed Ex truck, but they are not available per the BPI website.

Correct, pass on that pricing.
