    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I have some old paper hull shotshells and am wondering if there is any value/collector interest on them.
    I've got three full boxes of 16 gauge slugs, the better part of a box of 20 gauge bird shot, and some empty 12 and 16 gauge hulls.

    Generally no. But there are ammo collectors....etc. I'll take them when offered for the lead. I have a muzzleloading shotgun and occassionally cast some bullets.

    You can always list them on gunbroker and see what happens.

    OK. Some of them are still in good shape and I expect them to function fine in my 20 gauge so I'll probably just shot them and pull the rest for the lead.

    Sounds like a plan.

    I buy 'em when I can, but I only look for ones at "shooter" prices. I like to use them in my old Parker shotguns. They just seem to be the right accessory...

    I have a few old shells like that. I wouldnt shoot them, I just keep them to display with old guns as a thing.

    That's what I do too. I keep them for the cool factor.

    i think you can still get paper hulls as reloading components
