    I purchased three flats of Kemen light #8 to use for Sporting Clays...turned my vintage Remington 1100 into a Jam-O-Matic! 25% of the shells would not cycle and literally had to be FORCED into the chamber. Quite a few shooters have commented about the sizing issues with Kemen's over the last two weeks with 7 1/2 as well. No problem with firing, but they seem to be improperly sized and incondistent.

    Below is response from Kemen:

    Hi Joe,

    We apologize for the frustration that occurred while using our product. John with Kemen is correct in the fact that these are low pressure loads and will not function in the autoloaders.

    In regards to having some ammo that is out of round, we are investigating this. We appreciate that you notified us of this issue. This load is brand new for 2010 and your feedback helps us.

    If you would like, we would swap out the ammo you have, perhaps for a load that will cycle in your 1100?
