Ammodirect shotshells with Pinnacle
« on: April 22, 2022, 03:32:55 PM »
Grouchy Spike doesn't shoot any more so has been selling a bunch of guns and gear.  At Comancheria Days I picked up a half dozen boxes of Ammodirect shotshells loaded with Pinnacle (made by APP).  Only $5 per box of 12, which seemed pretty good.  Interestingly, these are all loaded in paper hulls.  I don't know how old they are (company web page still up but went out of business in 2011), but they drop in and out of a shell checker and I will keep them dry until used.   Some are very low brass and some are higher, though the labels are the same.  The crimp is pooching out on some.  I might run them through the crimp station on my LoadAll, but there seems to be an overshot card inside so no shot is leaking.  Has anyone ever used these?

Yeah if they were loaded in all brass hulls I think the price would have been slightly higher.  :)

 :)  Perfesser  ;)

Unless one were going Water Fowl(ing) in a Wet and Rainey blind, or paddling around in a Wet and Rainey Jon Boat, waterproofing paper hulls would be an activity of diminishing returns.  Unless of course, one were bored out of ones skull and just had to have something to do . . . . .

I may however, have a somewhat jaundiced point of view.  I don't like to be Cold, I don't like to be Wet, and I absolutely WILL NOT shoot inna Rain.  I can also special order Duck and or Goose from my local purveyor of specialty meats.  Pick up same whilst staying warm, dry, and or air conditioned when doing so.
