Averaged 97 something with reloads up to the grand and switched to these win super targets at the grand and shoots afterward...averaged just over 99 with them. So...assuming the shells had something to do with it, I'm for them. No misfires or problems.
A friend who shoots sporting clays told me he shot with a guy from Fla who had the crimps open up...he kept one and showed me...it looked like the super target, but had only a 6 star crimp rather than the 8 that the ST has. I think these 6 stars are super field shells.
The ST's have a AA wad I think, but this wad measures sligtly shorter than the AA wads that I have in bags,...maybe the wad from the ST that I cut open was a little compressed still when I measured it.
Super Target shells are popular in Western Canada. As Shawn said they work fine, I find the recoil not much different than Estates in 1145 ft/sec 1 1/8 oz loads. Before I put a new firing pin in my O/U, I had some misfires with Estates in my top barrel. Instead of pocketing the Estate shell that didn't go off I would merely put a Super Target in that barrel and put the Estate with a slight dent in the primer in the other barrel and shoot the pair of Doubles. I continue to use premium AA shells for Handicap but I have shot good practice rounds from the 27 with Super Target shells.
I shot them for a while. I did not like the fact that they did not come in a 1oz load. I had cocked wads and bad primers. But I do think the quality was any worse than any of the other shell makers. I think the Gun Club or the Top Gun are better than the Super Targets but they are not to be found in Western Canada. Trevor Dawe.
1moreround, Have you ever shot the top gun or gun club in a 1oz? If you did how did you find them for recoil? Trevor Dawe.
Shawn, And who would our friend be? As I have so few. Merry Xmas to you and yours Trevor.
I shot a bunch of them for all events and they break targets just fine...but as you will see they stick in the chambers of Ljutic's and some other guns and as Trevor stated, they don't come in a 1 oz. load so I shoot AA 1oz. 8's for everything but am considering going to a 1 1/8 oz load for 'caps from the 27...
