    Well I just bought 4 cases of the new Winchester Super Target shells at $53 a case. Has anyone had any experience with these shells yet? I'm excited to try them out and just wanted to see what others think.

    If they are the same ones that we have been buying for about 4 years, they work great. Lots of folks shooting them around here. They are comparable to the Federal Top Guns. Bill Malcolm

    Hi Trappy, They are a good shell. Same as Fed. Top Gun or Rem. Gun Clubs, but the Win. Super Targets have their normal AA wad in them. The most copyed wad in the market!!! Did you get the 2 3/4 dram ones or the 3 dram ones. The 3 dram are the most common. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    Pull & Mark, I'm really not sure. My coach just said "Hey we got orders coming in next week, do you want Winchester Super Targets, Kemens, or Estates?" I had used Kemens all last year with great success, and this year have shot two cases of Estates and hated them, and figured I would give the Winchesters a shot, they are made in the USA, and I'm not sure about the Kemens. Also, I love AA's and if they are any similar I'll be happy. So I put myself down for 4 cases of the Winchesters, 7 1/2's, and was not asked about the dram, just assumed they were 2 3/4.

    Trappy, Matt is correct when he told you about (assume). The Win. Supper Target loads have the 3 percent antimony lead that Rem. Gun Clubs and the Fed. Top Guns have has well. The Keman's have stated they have 5 percent antimony in their lead. And the Estate's have the best lead in them at 6 percent antimony. They are made by Federal as well. They have that odor that Fed. is noted for. You like them or hate them. The powder is also a bit dirty in the Estates and the Super targets as well. The Keman's powder is pretty clean burning. You do have to remember that the Keman's are also Euro. made shells and they have the metric system for shot size. That means their #8 are slightly smaller than our #8 shot is. Good Luck on the new shells and hope they bring you your first 100 strait. Break-em all. Jeff
