    Remington Reintroduces Classic Peters Paper Shotshells

    Peters Paper 12 Gauge shotguns shells (Remington)

    Remington Ammunition has reintroduced the classic Peters Premier Blue paper shotgun shell line. The 12 gauge shells are available in shot sizes 7.5 and 8 and at muzzle velocities of 1145, 1200 and 1290. The Peters Paper Shotshells have an MSRP of $19.99 for a box of 25 cartridges. The news comes as Remington Ammunition continues to realign itself after the break up of Remington Outdoor Company in 2020. In April the company’s president announced ammunition production was back in ‘full swing’.

    Here’s Remington’s announcement:

    Remington Ammunition has announced the reintroduction of the nostalgic favorite shotshell of shooters everywhere, Peters Paper. Trap, skeet and sporting clays shooters can now experience the thrill of shooting classic paper loads with modern performance. Sold exclusively on and available for a limited time only, shooters and collectors are encouraged to buy today.

    Peters Paper shotshells promise less felt recoil and trusted functionality backed by decades of performance. These loads feature the classic retro blue paper hull, clean and reliable primers, carefully selected powder blends and high antimony shot for tight, uniform patterns on clay targets.

    “We’ve talked a lot about Big Green being back. Now we are thrilled to add some blue into the mix,” said Remington’s Director of Marketing Joel Hodgdon. “These Peters shotshells are a true classic that so many shooters know and love. Remington is proud to introduce paper loads back into our lineup, but don’t worry, we are still making millions of plastic Remington rounds too.”

    The Peters Cartridge Company was founded in 1887 and forged a solid reputation for innovative, high-performance rifle, pistol, revolver and shotgun cartridges. Remington purchased the Peters Cartridge Company in 1934 and became known as Remington-Peters for a time. Many Remington cartridge heads are stamped with R-P to this day. In 1960, Remington introduced the first shotshells with plastic hulls. Remington hulls remain the famous ‘Remington Green’ color while Peters hulls remained the distinctive ‘Peters Blue’.

    More information about Peters Paper and Big Green ammunition can be found at or on Remington’s e-newsletter and social media accounts.
