I've been wanting to try their cheap buck shot.
Almost sounds like they use reclaimed shot if that's the case.
Maybe that's how they cut the cost.
I think for all around shells they won't be too bad. Most people don't know how their guns pattern anyways.
Hopefully the picture works. 2 3/4" shell, 1 oz, 8 shot, 12 gauge. BBS look better. 408 BBs.
WHAT !!! you did this outside a laboratory ??? !!!

A couple of points to make (about the buckshot)...
First: the ammo is pretty dirty, It leaves a plastic residue in the barrel, and it can be tough to clean out. I have found good success by shooting the Suprema, then following up with another box of cleaner shooting birdshot. This tends to remove the thick residue if you're worried about it.
Second: The brass that Suprema uses is very soft, I have had extractors rip through the rims on some of my shotguns (3 out of 9). It is very very important to test this ammo through your weapon before relying on it.
Third: there is no breakthrough with the buckshot, it tends to pattern like old fashioned buckshot. Now this isn't a bad thing about the ammo, but I thought I'd bring it up. It would be great at home defense distances (0-15 yds) but for hunting, it's not spectacular. Even with chokes, the pattern in pretty large at 25 yards.
This all being said, I use it a lot for practice, and I would recommend it. It works well when it does, but again just please be sure to test it.
I've written a short review and mentioned the buckshot in several other posts on the site, so if you have any questions, let me know. As for the birdshot I haven't tested any so I don't really know how it performs.
A year ago Cabellas had an insane deal on Estate buckshot. It came out to something like 25 to 30 cents a round. I haven't seen it that cheap before or after and I keep looking. Ammoseek.com or gunbot.net are two good websites that lets you see all the prices out there for all kinds of ammo. They have good filters as well.
I'll grab a box and try it and if I like it I may be able to get one of my distributors to do a ten case special order. They sure wouldn't do it for less then that.
