    The company had been out of business for a couple of years. It has been bought by new people. You now have different makers then before. Here in Utah people have been shooting it for the last couple of months and liking the results. I have looked at some (but not shoot it) and believe it could be rounder. Some one has done a test on its hardness and believes it is very hard. Bruce

    Black Diamond at one time was an excellent choice for shot, but at the end, it was terrible... square with shop edges, broken halves, etc. We opened a bag at Phillip's and it was all just pieces... the whole shipment was sent back. So I hope that the new owners restore the shot making to what built the company... well rounded, hard, and polished shot. Right now, the BEST NEW shot on the market is West Coast and they appear to be in full production. Fred.

    By the time Black Diamond was on its third owner, quality was beginning to suffer. Then they got OSHA on their tail who filed several liens based on some worker's blood tests. I flew out to evaluate the company and took many pictures. The equipment was tired and abused. They offered to sell it to me several times, during liens, and after liens were removed. It was quite a learning experience. IMHO Omaha

    Black Diamond shot was the best looking shot I had seen in a long time and that was 7 years ago, had not bought any since then.Bought it at the Grand then.

    Dr.Longshot , I still have a few bags of Black Diamond from about 5yrs ago. It is not for shooting though, it's just for looking at.

    As an update, I've been loading their shoot now for a while. I am pleased with its roundness and keeping buying more. Bruce
