While over at Brady’s the other day I was bemoaning my drastically depleted stocks of 16 gauge ammo after last year’s slaughter-rama squirrel season. He gave me this old box of ACTIV he’d reloaded who knows how long ago. ACTIV was a big thing back int he day for a few minutes. I have heard many rumors about what happened to them but have no idea what the deal is. I suspect the American shotgunner wasn’t ready for what looked like an all plastic shell.
Brady was a big fan but stopped reloading them when some issue came up involving not being able to source wads or cups that would work in them. I don’t know, I never have been a shotshell reloader myself. I only do rifle and handgun.
