    I already reported the thread; we'll see.

    Anyone ever heard of these guys? Their slugs are fairly cheap.

    B&P has been making quality ammo for over 100 years. Looks like B&P USA is having a sale. www.bandpusa.com

    The ammunition has been around for a long time. They use an unusual shotgun hull, in that the rim is metal, then a plastic inner ring, then the primer pocket. They're pretty distinctive when you see them for the first time.

    Hope this helps.

    I am intrigued, but I hate SPAMMers...

    If this guy had only introduced himself and honestly explained his line of business rather than post this SPAM type of crap...

    I just wish I could find a few reviews or patterning tests online. I can't afford to spend money right now on cheap practice ammo - got plenty of that already, anyhow - but at $50 shipped per 100, their 00 buck equivalent is certainly attractive as a cheap HD load... if only there were some pattern/penetration data somewhere.

    The slugs aren't that much cheaper than KOs, but I wouldn't mind picking up a couple boxes to try 'em out.

    Sorry guys, I didn’t mean to be a spammer. I just meant to pass along a good deal. My name is Aleesha, and it’s no secret that I work with B&P shotgun shells. I also don’t pretend to be an expert either. I can only pass along what our technical people say. Regarding pattern testing, I understand that patterning is a match between a specific gun, choke, barrel length and the specific brand of shell. Also, slugs and shot are totally different. The guy here who has shot our slugs says that he was truly impressed their accuracy at 100 yards. However, we are much better known for our competition and bird hunting shells. The reason why our competition and bird hunting 12 gauge shells are so different is because each contains a round shock absorber in the base of each shell called the Gordon System. That significantly reduces felt recoil and the detent impacted on each shot pellet. The dent inflicted on each pellet makes it fly asymmetrically. The deeper the dent the more the shot wonders, bad patterning. The less it’s dented the most symmetrical pattern for the greatest distance, most consistent, best patterning. Again, just trying to be helpful.

    Uh oh, a forthcoming, friendly spammer with relevant product and information... I may have to order some of your shells. :)

    Can you tell me the shot size for the 20ga. "big game gualandi"? If that's like #4 buck or larger, it's a good deal.

    Bordering on spam, but I've used B&P a couple times. Good loads.

    Even though it's tinged with commercialism, letting it stand for now...

    My question is.....Is she cute?

    We had a girl on the tractor forum once selling "Tire rejuvinator" (Snake oil) andwas cuteas a button, untill she signed one of her posts......Gary !!!

    Im still going to check out these shells.

    Thanks Aleesha!
  15. OK, I just spent some money.:D

    I clicked the Redeem button while placing my order and got another $4 off?

    Kind of makes me wish I had spent more......

    Wow, regardless of their performance (although by what people are saying, they sound quite good), those shells just look nice!

    Why exactly are these shells "the best"?

    I'd like to see some ballistic data, maybe some data on materials used in the construction and maybe some testimonials.
    I mean, if your gonna borderline spam, borderline spam with some pertinent info, please.

    Hi Guys, I appreciate you keeping me on the forum... and I'll accept the title "Friendly spammer." :) RaisedByWolves, Maybe I can post a picture sometime in the near future and let you decide if I’m “cute.”

    I definitely don’t want to be commercial and I’m not going to be preachy about our shells. I offered the concept of the Gordon System shock absorber in the base of 12 ga. earlier in this string. The shock absorber and the consistent burn of the high quality powders make for a major improvement in pattern symmetry and consistency.

    To jjohnson: the 20 ga. Big Game Gualandi is a 7/8 oz slug, not shot.

    Thanks to JohnBT, ReloaderFred and DaveMcCraken for your comments.

    If you want recommendations of specific shells for specific uses, I’ll do my best to get those questions answered. Thanks again guys. ;)

    How about pheasant loads?

    Upland game (quail/dove/small grouse)?

    Hi, Aleesha. How light, recoil-wise, are your EXTRA ROSSA* 28 GA. shells? My kids shoot an 870 Express in 28, so I'm always looking for a good, light kicking factory round to keep on hand for when I'm too lazy to reload.
