I have shot a bunch of these in the past and they are fine. Buy them to save money, not to save on recoil as others have said. I used to buy them by the case at the end of the year when Wal-Mart would mark them down. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened in a long time in my neck of the woods. As far as promotional loads go, they are one of the better ones for value and performance. The older ones used to use 8 point crimps. We can thank Remington for thinking of us reloaders again NOT.

All you need to do is make one low-buck change and swap your 8 point crimp starter for a smooth cone paper hull starter. Have had a smooth cone starter in my loaders for years. MEC, P-W and Hornady all sell them...under $6; others I don't know.
IMO, the ONE thing Remington has done right for the last 50 years is make shotshell hulls. I'll bend over to pick up a Remington promo hull....20, 16 or 12 gauge...and leave a shiny new AA on the ground.
As unknown1 said a "cone starter" will make your life much simpler, also they & STSs last longer than anything else (for me). Also agree with Mike C. but I will pick them (AAs) up & when I get a few clay bird boxes full I sell them here on T.S. as there some that do reload them. My only wish is that they (GCs & black fields) had brass instead of steel heads, if shot new in my gun I don't need to resize them but the pick-ups are harder to resize than the brass. I have not yet had the sticking (in the chamber) problem that others report. IMO best hull on the market, sure hope Rem. doesn't have to cheapen them up to stay competitive with everything else out there. Ross Puls
