I just yesterday completed shooting 6 flats of these at Sporting Targets over the last couple of months. They were purchased back in January as a possible replacement for AA Super HDCPs. There were 0 duds, misfires, or badly crimped loads. 0 hung up in the chamber. Reloading is not a consideration, my hulls hit the ground. These loads performed extremely well and it's a subjective opinion but.....they may even crush the targets a we bit harder (if that's possible) than the AAs. Recoil is not a factor...will be ordering 10 flats from the same dealer.
