The powder is clean burning, the primers always go bang and the wads and shot are premium stuff. I pattern all of my shotguns with 48 inch square paper and i can tell you with Briley chokes in my Berettas, these loads are even and tight. Recoil is nearly zip compared to the Target Win Value Pack shotgun shells a lot of guys use. I can shoot all day and have no problems. The Fiocchi cases are fantastic to reload too. Brass heads and good plastic. The newest Fiocchis have 6 fold crimps and the older Fiocchis had 8 fold crimps. Doesn\'t seem to make any difference to me. - R. D.
