While I did not buy any. The B & P salesman at a large shoot near me gave me the whole pitch. He told me how there wad was better than anything on the market. I ask him if it was better than Win. AA's and he told me it was better. So I said how about selling me a bag of wads. He went back to trying to sell me shells. I said how about some wads as I reload. He looked for another customer to sell to. So I still have not shot any!!! But for the prices he was trying to sell them for, they should have broke the targets for ya. LOL. break em all. Jeff
They have a range of good to excellent shells. The upside is due their "Gordon" hull, the perceived recoil is a bit softer for a given velocity than conventional-hulled ammo. I personally still prefer STS/Nitro or Win AA over the B&P for tourney applications.
I have shot a lot of B/P over the years and the Comp 1's are ok.I have also seen some shooter have good results with the 1 1/8 of 8.5s at 1260. The comp. 1 at 1 1/8 of 8s at 1160 was ok but I did have some very soft loads--say sometimes 2 per case.I was not in a hurry to buy more and pretty much use STS----AA---or Winchester White box and have had consistent results.
