These are good shells and reasonably priced. I pick up a case/flat whenever I drive near the gun store - part of my plan to invest for the future. I have never had a problem with the shells. They fire as expected and - best of all - they LOOK GREAT.

I have found that the inner boxes are poorly sealed. Two sprung open last weekend as they jostled in my bag - in the trunk. I've talked to other shooters who have had similar experiences.

My SOP now is to open the case, tape each inner box top and bottom, and return to case. Yes, it's a hassle, but worth it because the shells look so good. Right?!

I feel terrible now - my reloads are dull and the crimps are discolored - didn't know the shells had to look good too.

Are you kidding? Don't you get a little tingly when you see a brand new box of Federal papers, or Nitro27's in your pouch/vest? I do! I also could understand why you might do this to your shell boxes.

So that's why my scores are in the tank,,,,,,, my shells don't LOOK PRETTY. I did buy "a" box (Peters Blue Magic) of brand new shells once but they were so good looking I just couldn't bring myself to actually shoot them so they are still sitting on the shelf where I can admire them.

PS Sure wish that was a valid excuse.

I had several flats of RIO 1 ounce loads about 2-3 years ago and several boxes only had 24 shells in them. Not a big issue for the price I was paying, but I had to make sure I had an extra with me at all times.

Big Don, what happened to our hostile takeover on the Michigan Trapshooting facility?

The website link doesn't work from the ATA HOA page either. The place is going to the dogs.
