    To be fair, I only shot 200 Kemens at Silver Dollar this year. My experience was not good. Out of 200, I had 3 not fire and about 20 sounded weird like a cocked wad or something. I have shot a couple thousand rounds since of various shells with no problems. Also, a guy on a squad in front of us at the dollar was shooting them with a lot of the "cocked wad" sounds.

    I don't want to beat them down, but my experience wasn't good.

    I'm not a big time shooter but they are my shell of choice.

    Lots of shooters at the Dollar use them and two of my punches were received when I was using Kemens, both when it was quite windy.

    I don't credit the shells with the punches, I just happened to be using them when I pointed the gun in the right place and managed to stay in the gun for the events. I have used the same shells and, after the event, wondered why I had bothered to complete that event since I was missing so often.

    Excellent; easily as good as Winchester AA's. I purchase 100 flats per year.

    I also shot them at the Silver Dollar. I wish the boxes weren't so flimsy.....

    Yeah, the boxes stink if you try to save them for holding other, reloaded, shells. I don't save them or the Gun Club boxes (since GC boxes often let go just as I pick the box up and I play 25 round pick-up).
