Diana ammo gone bad

3875 7
Well I don't know what has happened to the Diana shells, but I am no longer on the Diana band wagon. For the past two years they have been the majority of what I have shot (10 cases a year) and never had a bad one. Well I just bought 10 more cases and random boxes out of different cases have left me unhappy. Probably 3 or 4 shells of every box has been a puffer. I have to check the barrel to make sure the wad comes out. People think I'm shooting reloads. If this is what they have come to I am off the band wagon.

I also, Am not that happy with the Diana's I picked up a few month ago In 1-1/8oz.
They shoot so so in singles, Yes there are some "LIGHT" powder loads, just enough to break the Bird.
Weather has little to do with this problem here in Arizona.
I'll use them for practice and short yardage.

FYI: The Hulls reload very nicely.
A Diana hull, Cheddite primer, 20gr of Clays, Windjammer 1-1/8 wad, 1 1/8oz if Hard shot.
Makes for a very nice 27 yrd Handicap load.

Just my $0.02 worth
