    Has anyone reloaded 12ga Winchester #00SG 9 Ball Buckshot or Bushman 34gr 2.75"/70mm hulls?

    If so how do they stack up after multiple reloads and which of the two hulls are better for long term use (or are they identical in that respect?) Also can the Buckshot hulls be re-packaged with waterfowl hunting lead shot (such as #2 to #4) instead of 00 'Buck?

    I'm looking to get into shotshell reloading so any technical data on Winchesters such as hull construction, wads etc would be much appreciated. On that note I'm aware that Remington Gun Club & STS are the reloaders hull of choice but unfortunately I'm limited to Winchester & Federal primers/reloading supplies and Fiocchi, Rio, Winchester, Federal and Kemen ammo plus a few no namer brands where I live (New Zealand).

    Thanks!
