    Great sporting clays load in the 7/8 and 1 oz in the F2 Mach high brass. Absolutely destroy the targets.

    Regards, Joe

    Great shells. Shot them for years in Sporting Clays, primarily the 1 oz 1240 (?) load. Still have a little over a case, which is a real case and not a "flat".

    I have been using the 1oz. F2 Legend for 3 years and think it is the best shell available. If you can get some friends to share 50 flats you can get a much better price.

    B&P are excellent, at least that's what the sporting clays guys think of them....I am going to order some of their 28 gauge loads and try them out. Too bad there is not a market for reloading the hulls.

    They are great shells but way over priced. Not any better than the Big three for sure. When they end up half again as much as the big three you have to have some funds to waste in my view.

    Also remember that these B&P's are metric sized shells so the shot is slighty smaller than American sized shot, just like the Rio's and Keman's, and other Euro brand loads. Break-em all. Jeff

    The B&P shells imported by B&P USA are listed in their American shot sizes and are packaged 200 shells to the case.

    I've shot them and absolutely love them. I buy them when they have them on sale.

    They pattern extremely well and have never failed.

    The website for B&P will give you a price for one case of shells, but if you order 50 or more cases, they are comparable to American mfg. shells in cost. Also, using a 6 star crimp starter, the shells load very satisfactory. Sam
