    Is there a difference in the hardness of clay birds from one manufactuer to another? If so, which are the 'softest' and which are the 'hardest', and what's in between.

    It seems to me White Flyers have been slightly more difficult to break lately-less smoke-more pieces. Could be me. Remington's were the best-Federals the worst!!

    Western Sky, made in Odessa, WA some years ago took a prize for hardness. Some were picked up with eight holes or chips in them without breaking.

    In the West, the softest target in the past was made in North Vancouver, BC by Caldwell Industries. They really smoke.

    The cost of breakage during shipping is of prime interest.
