Would you explain the difference between compression-formed and Reifenhauser-type hulls and give a neophyte reloader criteria for selecting hulls for reloading. I m shooting 12ga at sporting clays primarily but would be interested in small bore recommendations as well including 16ga.The Reifenhauser process makes the shotgun hull by basically attaching a plug to the end of an extruded tube to form a two piece hull. They are straight walled. Federal Gold Medal hulls are a good example of the type.Compression formed hulls are molded from one piece of plastic with an inward taper at the bottom inside. The current Remington STS hulls are good examples.Today, I believe that in 12 gauge the Remington STS or Nitro 27 hull is the best. New HS AA 28 gauge hull is good, but I like the Reminggton 28 a little better. The best 28s were the old AAs. The AA rules in .410. I have never seen much difference between the Winchester and Remington hulls in 20 gauge, but they are better than the Federals.Be careful if you reload the same hull often. Look for the obvious loss of the crimp tabs and the less obvious, but equally important, vertical pressure split on the side of the hull above the brass. When it doubt, throw it out.As to 16 gauge, I am afraid that I just don t shoot that gauge enough to reload and so have no direct personal experience there.I am interested in buying a good gun case to transport my Arrieta to my hunting areas. I obviously want a highter quality case as the Arrieta broke my bank and the wife would kill me if I did not take every precaution.90 percent of the time, I will be throwing the case into the bed of my PU truck and heading out. I also would like something that I could fly with if someday I decide to go somewhere else.I have looked at Americase. I have looked at Kalispel(online catalogue) and they look good. I have also seen hard plastic cases like the Browning Travel Vault.Everyone has his own idea of what makes a good gun case. It all really depends on how and how much you are going to travel.The Kalispell cases are humongous big giant nasty welded things with padlocks and rods hanging on them. They are virtually theft proof because most thieves don t come with fork lifts.My standard approach is to use one of the padded Boyt cloth cases (life time guarantee) and put that inside of a hard case if you are going to do any serious travel. I prefer my cases to be full length, not to be the take down type, as I find that more convenient on most shooting trips where we are in and out of the car a great deal.The Boyt case does fine for light duty. When I want to travel seriously, I think that putting the Boyt case inside a Pelican or Browning Vault (Pelican makes the cases for Browning) makes the most sense. The Browning/Pelicans reinforced plastic outsides can withstand nuclear attack and, while heavy, they don t weigh an entire ton.I don t like to use the kind of hard case where you have to take the gun apart and lay the barrel and receiver side by side. That always causes injury when they shift around on that bumpy foam rubber.I also have a John Hall plastic two gun case and a Briley coffin tube set case. Both are far too fragile for serious air travel. My John Hall case has hinges that last about two air trips. The neat looking Briley case has split the seams on the top just do to opening and closing. It is far to fragile to even attempt flying with it. The cases that Hartman made for my old Brownings were fine for the station wagon, but not for any kind of serous use.One case that is very good and has stood up surprisingly well are the older Perazzi and Beretta molded plastic cases with form fitting lined compartments. The come in all sorts of sizes. They don t look real strong, but mine certainly are. Light and easy to carry too. Nice case and the price is right on the mark. Very similar are the current Negrini that are also excellent cases.So there it is. Full length padded Boyt for around town. Boyt inside Browning/Pelican Vault for serious trips around the world- unless you like the Perazzi case better. One of those two solutions.
