    I have 4 flats of them, all of mine are 25 to a box. It was probably just a factory mistake. I have also heard of it happening with estates.

    maclellan1911 - exactly the same things you describe occur with premium brand shells as well.

    i shot rio,s today for the 1st time.i thought they were ok. it was just weird to see all those boxes 1 shell short. i can see how this could happen to any brand shells at any given time dwain

    I had the same thing happen with some of the Kemans as well. I was only short a shell or 2 from each flat though(10 flats). I E-mailed their consumer website and was taken care of ASAP, and they sent me some hats to the house. Just tell them the lot number of the flat. Very nice people to do bussiness with. Jeff

    Bought 20 flats, 10 of 71/2 and 10 of 8's. Out of the ten flats of 8's, I had at least 2-3 boxes out of every flat that had 24 in a box, none in the 71/2. Jeff

    24 to a box happening more and more frequently with all brands, all styles from the cheapest promos to top of the line STS, WIN AAs and Fed Gold Medals paper and plastic.

    Plan on 5 - boxes for every 100 bird event.

    It's that four percent off deal when you buy a flat.

    Dang ... ya know ... it is nothing more than them migrating base wads but this time they took the shell and everything with them when they migrated.

    Bob,

    If you still have the 410 shell, I will take it if no one wants it, I shoot skeet with the 410.
