Blue Remington Peters 12 ga


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have several hundred of the blue peters hulls, (25 years old) that I am looking for a recipe that uses one of the hodgon powders. When I use to reload these hulls I used red dot, but from what I have read the red dot has change and no longer list a recipe for this hull. I would like to use hodgon powder but will use something else if someone has a dependable recipe. I have read that remington had a hull that was called blue magic, would this be the hull that I have or did they make several blue hulls? The hull is slick on the outside.

Doc, I still have several 1000 Blue peters and why not use your Red Dot load that you once used? I don't think Red Dot has changed that much! Unless you are wanting to shoot magnum loads. 33 years ago the Chief of Police introduce me to shooting Colt 1911 A1, poured and lubed and sized the 230 round nose bullets, allways used 4gr. of Red Dot! I never could find any loading data saying to use 4gr. of Red Dot, and If I load 230 rn I still use 4gr of Red Dot. Your Blue Peters cases are softer plastic than Win AA, so you shouldn't have any problem, just my 2 cents.
I see if I can find you a load.
Hoped this helped
Greg

They were called "blue magic" by some if I remember correct? My huntin" bud loved them for reloading. I would have to ask him for the recipe. I do remember that he scored well on pheasent using them.

I would like to find a recipe using universal, international or clays considering I have them on hand. I came close to trashing the peters and use rxp hulls but could not part wih them, they have worked very good for me. Going back to the red dot for these hulls is not that big of an issue, maybe even try the Promo, its suppose to be like the red dot just cheaper. Do you reload the peters you have? If so, what recipe do you you use? If you don't reload them are you ready to get rid of them?

If you want SWEET HULLS Find you some Fedal Gold Medal Paper Hulls, before you are going to load, take you a cookie sheet, heat the oven up to 150 degrees place those paper hulls on that cookie sheet not touching, just so air can flow around them, leave them in there for about 10 mins. Then go load them, keep them in a low humidity area, like the bed room. They don't work well in the rain but, sporting clays , skeet , trap, you can't beat them at least 20% less recoil! When I was shooting registered skeet with my Browning 4 barrel set, we were shooting every weekend, and shooting 800-1000 practice shots a week, I severed the tention that is right there at your rotator cup, I had to go shooting paper, and putting on DMSO every night just to keep shooting.
I hope that I have helped you some. you can use 700X in allmost any hull.
See Ya Greg

The old blue Peters hull appears to be identical to the old green Remington hull that preceeded the Remington STS. Even the headstamp on the brass is the same. I've always reloaded them interchangeably with the same recipe for 1 1/8 trap loads.

I would have to see how many I have left, I have gave away a boo cou amount! If someone is in reakl need of some, i would see if I can get up in the attic (bad back thing) andsend you a hundred, if you wanted to pay the frieght. i will help anyone out if I can, if possible.
I am still looking for some 16ga hulls, don't need a lot, swaped some of those blue peters for some 16ga to a guy over on the wire.
happy shooting folks
Greg

Thanks for the advice. I will pick up some more red dot and use the same recipe as in the past. If anyone has some blue peters that they want to get rid of let me know.

Doc, as soon as it warms up a little I will get up in the attic and see how many I have left, If i have some to spare all you will need to do is pay the weight. When I sold my Hornady 366 loaders, I give the guy 3000 of them, but I might still have a few in the attic.
I will let you know
Greg

Great, I will be glad to pay shipping. Did they make these hulls in a 20 gauge?

I still use the same Red Dot loads that I've been using for 25 or more years and the 'Old Blues' seem to like them just fine. I did use Unique for awhile but don't remember the load I used....always with 1 1/8 oz. of 8s though.

Yep, they did make them in a 20, But it will take me while to remember,but they where not smooth on the outside, if my memory is correct! Last summer I gave my little cousin a bag full of misc. loaded 20's, but I might still have one stuck some where, so I could see if they ribbed or smooth. Both were top quality hulls.
Havn't been in the attic yet, but I will do my best to get up there in next few days.
See Ya
Greg

Hey Doc, I found 1 -20gauge peters, and they were smooth, and I remember that you got a lot more loads out of them than you did the AA's

They were called Blue Magic! Man I missed those days, I had 3 Paciffic 366 and a PW 410 set up and running, We were shooting 400 rounds of practice skeet, and the Shooting 400 Registered Birds. LONG TIME AGO!
Seems like a life time time ago!
Life goes on, no matter what!

Happy Shooting to all!
Please be carefull!!!
Greg
