    They are total crap ... send them to me and I can properly dispose of them for you at no charge this one time only ... unless you get more.

    As George Digweed is reputed to have said: "the worst shell is better than the best shooter". Lot of truth to that.

    They will blow up your gun and kill you and your entire immediate family. I will send my hazmat/bomb squad team to pick them up. Leave them in your driveway. What is your address.

    PS. If you have a nice trap gun, leave it with the shells.

    They seem to be sensitive to cold weather. Had lots of bloopers in the Winter when I tried them, as well as some misfires. Could have been the one lot, but I never went back. Standard deviation over a chrono was something like 80fps.

    Fine in a break gun, Autos may have issues. My experience. I would not use them for caps due to inconsistent veloscity.

    well they are free

    some 11/8 once that I shot had felt recoil like the PMC- they rattled your teeth

    regards from Iowa


    I would trade them- after one box it was an unpleasant experience

    Hey Bob...bring those terrible and dangerous shells with you Saturday and I will be compassionate enough to properly dispose of them for you.

    If you shoot them in cold weather put them in the clubhouse so they dont get cold....if they get cold they will cost you a bird here and there. I can tell you this from EXPERIENCE.

    Yeah im sure that Clayborn Hunter was as shooting them from the 27 I have shot a bunch of them also from the 27 all the way up to the 24,5 yard line ok I think the 2 3/4 is just as good as the 3 dram from the front line but I like the handicap loads futher back but as I was told by one rep's he shot the regular 3 dram load from the fence instead of the handicap loads and he carried a pretty good average.

    Haven't shot them in a few years. They were a little on the rough side then recoil wise. Broke the targets but the powder then really stunk I mean real bad. Not sure what they are like now but do like the price.

    I don't know what they use for powder, but it burns stinky.

    You have your answer. They were free, so pass them out among your friends and see if they stay that way.

    I'm glad I did a hit on this thread because I now know if I need to get rid of 165 flats that , Lumper , J brooks , Ahab , and Sqibb will all look out for me in my best interest and take it off my hands. The best part is at little or no cost to me. You meet the best friends here on T.S.Com. Thank's guys, Kevin

    Thought you would like to know: Well folks, shot 7 boxes of the 2 3/4 gram loads, 7 1/2's this week-end at 2 Gun Club shoots and they far exceeded my expectations. Ran a practice round and had a 97 x 100 in singles yesterday. The 3 lossess were because of slowness between the years. In my opinion there just as good as the AA's, Top Guns, Gun Clubs, Estates, Kents and Rio's. Because they are scarce in these parts (So. Calif) I'll probably find them hard to come by but the cheapest I can find so far is $5.38 box which is a downer. I understand the Euro in causing the problem now. Oh well, having 8 cases left they should do me for several months. Appreciated your comments. Thanks. Bob
