    Gun Clubs. They have have great reloadable steel based hulls.

    Have shot some of my best scores with Remington promotional brand shells.

    Usually purchased at WalMart, which is between the trap range and my home, for $21 per 100 shells -- 1-1/8 ounce of #8 shot at 1200 fps.

    Save all the hulls and they reload great.

    Rio is what I buy when I have the choice (this is only applies to when I'm looking to buy cheap shells).

    Federal Top Guns, Remington Gun Clubs, Estates, and then Rio's, in that order and I have bought a bunch of all of them ... Gun Clubs and Estates run about even ... I don't care about reloadability, they are all throw aways to me ... If anyone wants me to save them, let me know and I will for .03 each and you pay shipping ... Just bought 50 flats of Estates ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I shoot 1oz.loads for 16yds and the Rio's have better velocity and the recoil is less sharp.Jerry

    The Federal produced shells are the best of the lower cost shells. If you reload, the Rem. Gun Clubs are best. My experience. Clyde
