    They worked fine for me. I prefer them over the discount shells loaded in Spain but I can't give a solid reason why I prefer them. I do like Estates a little better than Centurion just because they are not imported.

    Tried them a couple of years ago. Several "popper" loads that sounded like there wasn't enough powder in them. They broke targets though. Only shot them at singles.

    I haven't used their shotshells but I had to inspect each round of their 5.56 I bought to weed out the rounds with the dented / gouged cases. There were more rejects than I wanted to see. I quit buying them.

    Tom....I purchased 12 flats in Fla last year. Did not have any trouble with the shells. If I remember correctly they were marked 1150fps....BUT I do believe they are "hotter" than marked.......RUN'EM

    We sell them at our club, have seen hundreds of boxes go to the line and don't think I can recall any problems.

    You still get what you pay for.. From the 16..just about anything will work..As the yardage gets longer..a faster shell.. and harder shot will always prove superior.. For practice..I'd shoot them.. if I did not reload.. but a regestered match.. I'll stick with Remington/Winchester/Federal

    Centurion is the importer located in Texas. The shotshells are made in Italy; the metallics are made in Mexico.

    These shell are brought in by DKG in Illinois. These are the same people that brought in Noble Sport Ammo. They also bring in some Russian ammo as well.

    DKG is an abbreviation for Da King's Guards-- they use Centurion shells in their guns.
