    what we found regarding the shot in estate shells is that they are consistently short on the count (some as much as 100 pellets short) and the shot is very poor quality in terms of size and roundess. also, it doesn't make any difference what size you purchase or what is marked on the shell, the shot is the same. many estates we cut open had shot as small as number 11 and as large as number 6 in the same shell. i don't think number 11 has enough energy to break a clay target at 40 yards.

    for anyone interested, we make an inexpensive shot counter which will give you some interesting information.

    I wouldn't put a lot of faith in the list of who shot what gun and with which brand of shells!

    Imagine my surprise to find out that I shot a Krieghoff gun and Winchester shells.

    My Beretta and Federal Top Gun shells are very disappointed in the accuracy of this list!

    i am with you higun. it also said i shot a Browning and AA shells. i have to say i did it with a Caesar Guerini and Federal shells. do not put to much faith in the figures they are quoting. sounds like mis-information to me.

    That explains those ten 99's I shot using estates this year. I knew it couldn't have been me.
