    Sorry Ken, those shells won't work. Please send them to me at once for proper disposal.

    You will be fine with both shells. Use your 1oz. 8's for singles and your 1 1/8 for your handicap. If the recoil bothers you, put a reducer in your stock bolt hole. I have used them all. C&H or Dead Mule work fine and have selections you can make for your stock bolt hole I.D. Hope this helps, Roy

    If you don't know what caps are then you don't have to worry about shooting them.

    I have shot some of my best scores with the 3dr #8 Top Guns, they will work fine for just about anything. I would use the Rio's for singles and short yardage Hdcp.

    They will work and they will only work if you do what your supposed to do so shoot em up but do one thing and if you do anything at all be sure you do this one small simple thing now.

    Buy more shells, they dont have to be Rio's but buy more shells now and plan on buying at least as much if not more than what you have now. The only reason I tell you this is you will be able to say that your average cost for shells is lower than what they are at some later time and as long as you always have shells on the floor ready to shoot and continue to replace as you shoot the average cost will be lower than replacement for a very long time ... so shoot them and replace them before its to late and the average cost will be to high.
