Re: Are old shotgun hulls safe to reload?
You're fine, I'm still loading some that are well over 10 years old with no issue, including AA's. Wads can age, a skeet buddy who shoots .410 had some very old wads and they were coming apart, the plastic had degraded enough over about 10-15 years. A call to Remington confirmed that it was a good possibility with everything else being considered; powder, press adjustments, gun, etc.
Hulls are good and even wads will be safe, if not perfect performers.
