    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    Last year R-10's shot a whole lot cleaner than years past.
    They are my closest available source locally...
    Good shells IMO but so are many others.

    1 oz. 7 1/2's or 8's. The higher cost shells have harder shot and usually pattern better than the soft shot cheap promo loads........Me I'll be shooting my reloads with home made shot 7 1/2" & 8's in my 410 under & over.

    I but mine several cases at a time from Haddrell's. He usually has Rio, Clever, Fiocchi, etc. I don't really have a brand preference. I shoot 7/8 oz in 20 gauge and 1 oz in 12. I pay more attention to shot size than brand among the ones listed.
