    Excellent AMMO. Have about 50 Flats in inventory right now. They have been the best value in the market. Same shell as Rio except at 5% antimony vrs 3% for the Rio.

    What FRedman said. I've also had a few in warm weather.

    Ditto to what PerazziBigBore says. Steel base sticks in the chamber of my Silver Seitz. Otherwise, they are a good shell.

    Not only is the ammo good it is one of the best reloading hulls I have found. I use a PW and load a 1 oz load, straight wad with a six point crimp and you would be very hard pressed to tell them from new. I make no changes on the loader from my AA hull loads. I only load these once and use them for practice or doubles. I do not know about cold weather bloopers as we live in the south and we have shot tons of them with no problems.

    How am I supposed to tell a good shell (consistent velocity, consistent chamber pressure, good pattern) from a poor shell by just shooting them on the line? Is it possible to judge shells by the sound they make. This year at a 200 bird singles event, I got 4 boxes of Challenger shells from a friend. I ran the first 100 with them. I then shot a 96 on the second hundred with 4 boxes of Rem STS shells. Does that indicate the Remington shells were inferior to the Challenger ? Or, is it possible that some other factors were responsible for the difference in scores?

    Pat ... did they all go BANG or BOOM when you pulled the trigger? If they did then they are good shells and if they didn't well ... so it was you who missed the 4 and not the shells.

    Challengers are made in Canada using mostly French components. French hull, Primer, powder etc.

    Shot thousands of them, never had a single problem. I shoot a BT-99, and am not having the "sticking" problem. Excellent value though, I am getting $47 a flat.

    I am...just doing a bit of lurking....shhhh!

    They are that where I shoot. We have a guy that come in every other month or every month or something like that. I think the benefit is that we don't pay tax, but that is the price per flat.

    I used to get Challenger hulls from a fellow who shot pallets of them. He liked them, and I liked the hulls.

    Dear Pat.

    The Robin's Egg Blue hull breaks targets better than green hulls. I thought EVERYONE knew that! LOL

    I like the Kemen hulls. I load them once with Nobel or Rio primers and let them go. GREAT with "three tablespoons" of bulky powder, 12SO wad, and 24 grams of shot!

    Trappy, glad you are back. Don't let the B@$T@RD$ get you down!
