    Maximum allowable velocity for 1 1/8 oz. shell is 1290. The AA's are 1300.

    I was at a registered shoot yesterday & noticed these hulls on the ground, had never seen them before, they were once fired factory new picked up a few of them, tried researching them on the net---my question if you knew of a person using them at an even -is this grounds for disqualification---I,m a recoil sensitive type (bad back) shells like these would probably put me out of action for a week---Phil

    If someone was indeed shooting these shells in an event, everyone would have noticed. They make a much more pronounced report than a handicap shell does.

    Besides, it's too late to do anything about it now. It had to be done while the shooter, in question, is still shooting.

    Don't let it bother you. What comes around, goes around. Just focus on your shooting and everything else will take care of itself.

    I doubt the poor guy was trying to cheat. If he was, he has to live with it.

    Like anyone can tell the difference between 1290 and 1300 fps.

    Do not get your shorts in a knot. If he won, he would have whipped you with 1290 "legal" shells.

    Phil, yes they are illegal and if I see someone using them at a registered shoot I will report it. If it's at my shoot I will DQ you on the spot.
