    We all know the Estates are sub-standard, what about the Winchesters Walmart sells for $16.97 for 4 boxes?

    They will hit everything you can. However, the shot size runs small. 8s are about 9s, 7.5s about 8.

    The glue that holds the bottom flap of the box together was a little weak.

    Oposite of the first poster who likes the gun club better I like the Winchester shell better than the gun club. I find them consistant and as one fellow said they will break every target you hit. I also have tried the federal four box pack for the same price and found they are very similar to the winchester shell but I like the winchester shell over the federal shell also. I think the results are the same but the winchester is a tad softer shooting. Dan

    I usually buy the Federals because they burn a lot cleaner but they both perform fine.

    i have shot almost 2000 Winchesters this summer and I only had one that was slightly deformed and would not chamber. I really hate to hear about the cost increase. A guy mentioned that at my club today.

    Out of the three value packs WM offers Winchester are the worst from a consistancy standpoint. Very irregular for gas gun use - not unusual to have 5-6 per 100 without enough juice to work the gun properly. Federal have the least recoil, Remington are fine and the hull's great to reload.

    Dave S, don't know why you're having problems loading the Estate but not the WM Federal. They're the same hull. I load them interchangeably without incident.

    "We all know the Estates are sub-standard."

    Damn, I wouldn't have run a 100 with 'em had I known that.

    Adios, Dirk
