I have no idea on the primer question.

I have some old Winchester brass hulls.  Mine are just like my Rem-UMC hulls (and same as MagTech) and take large pistol primer.

 

But Ducks Unlimited shells were Berdan primed, I think?  I don't know how those shells were headstamped.

Look down inside the hull at the bottom.

 

If it has a single hole in the center, they are not Berdan primed.  If no single hole in center, then Berdan primed. 

 

If primed with a 209 shotgun shell primer, it should be obvious inside and out.

 

If the primer looks like a large rifle or pistol primer, that too would look obvious. 

 

But no guarantee because primers were not standardized like today.  Here are primers that look much different than today's primers.

I had to recut the primer pockets on these antique 10 guage hulls.
