How well do the RST 16 ga 2 1/2 " ultra-lites and falcon light hulls re-load?

Thanks

They’re Cheddite hulls, so they load like..well, Cheddite hulls do. Good for a few reloads and then they’re trash. Plastic is really pliable-soft. I’ve been getting about 5 to 7 reloads out of a Hull. Hope this helps.

Take a look at Hogdons reloading. There are several loads for RST-Cheddite hulls in 16 2 &1/2. Pb and 7625 are gone but Universal, International, and 20/28 were, and hopefully will be again, available in 3/4 and 7/8. Soft on the shoulder.

I like Winchester 572 powder in these hulls.

This is my load with the RST hulls Travis, and I agree about 5 reloads is the max.
2 1/2 Cheddite hull, 14gr Green Dot, 3/4 oz. shot., BPI SG 16 Sporting wads, and Cheddite Clerinox 209 primers.
Pressure is less than 5500 psi and a buddy chronographed the load at 1185 fps. The RST 3/4 oz. load is listed at only 1100 fps.
There is incomplete combustion in cold weather - not much of an issue here in the desert wink

Drew, what seems to be the temp in F where the combustion issues arise? Gil
