I was studing the precision reloading manuel for 16g and came accross something i dont understand. The following load-w209, 20g of 7625,tuwz2m16ga in a 1 ounce load produced the following differences in the Rem plastic hull and Winchester polyformed:

Rem 1230 v and 10400 pressure
Win 1150 v and 7200 pressure?
Is that correct

Mostl likely. The Remington hull has thicker, more tapered walls and a smaller inside diameter. They are best used for loads of 1 ounce or less using only the R16 or the SP-16 Remington wads. They tend to hold up better to multiple reloading.

The polyformed shell will be junk after a couple three loads-the Remington is a very durable hull.

How do you guys get the remington case mouth to last more than 2 or 3 loading ? Mine all crack after a few loadings.

For added case life I use a light load of 7/8th ounce with a moderate burn powder such as Unique at 1150 - 1200 fps.

I have gotten as many as 12 reloads from a single hull with this load.

By the way the Reminton case will crimp securely with one or even two splits in the case mouth so don't discard them prematurely.

I'm using Unique, 7/8 oz, and an R16 and my Remington cases look terrible and a few have split down the side. My Federals, on the other hand, are up to 5-6 reloadings and look terrific, although I'm hesitant to load them more than 5 times.

But to stay on topic, isn't that the wad with the fingers on the bottom that is a really tight fit in the Remington hulls? If so, everybody seems to recommend staying away from that one unless using the larger hulls like Federal, Fiocchi, etc.

BR, I think the referenced wad is the Baschieri & Pelagri wad also known as the "trap commander", one of their Z series wads. The one with the little fingers on the wad base bottom is the Gualaundi wad of the GL series. The Gualaundi wad has a smaller shot cup. However, both have too big an outside diameter for the Remington hull and will promote early hull wear, higher pressures, and loading difficulties.
