    Made by UEE the same company that makes Rio's. What information I found says they are hard hitting.

    Watch the speed on these. I bought some for the Tri-State shoot and they were 1290 fps. I found out that is way faster than I am used to shooting in trap. My load (as I now know) is near 1145 fps. Maybe a newbie mistake but i had trouble with the speed on some shots. I just looked at them and said "what?" my "coach" was watching me and said the shot string was ahead of the bird. Anyway, a good value if that is what you shoot. They do post the speed on the box!

    I have shot almost 10 flats. No misfires or squib loads. Have not fired them below 25 degrees. To me, they are comparable to the Wally World Federal 100 packs. The cases do not compare for reloading, they are junk. Bill Hom

    I introduced my work buddy to clays this past spring. He bought a 5-6 flats of them and that's about all he shot during that 6-7 month period. No mis-fires or feeding problems, good breaks. His misses were not because of the shells. I recently got him started in reloading. His days of Independence are probably over but I would recommend them if your looking to save some $$$$.

    Few shooters are as good as about any shells.
