A premium clay/skeet/trap shooting shell, this is a great choice for those who want the soft shooting upper hand that these shotshells are inclined to present for you. The #9 shot may seem a secondary choice until you realize that these are a 1 1/8 ounce payload and that the intended targets (clay pigeons) are quite susceptible to the tiny pellets that the #9 throws out. Combined with the massive amount of lead on target, the mild recoil and the great pattern coverage of the payload, you are getting a great all-around sporting cartridge. You’ll be increasing your scores in no time practicing and competing with these shells.
Remington offers premium build quality and exceptional reliability in their shotshells. The low base steel (zinc coated) bases are a little less resilient than brass and tend to be a little less practical for reloading, but that’s not a big deal given the excellent performance and sure extraction, as well as the premium level of ignition and feed reliability. The consistency of the round from a velocity and accuracy perspective makes it hard to beat, even if it isn’t the perfect donor cartridge for reloaders. The price point is the main point though – it is priced such that it doesn’t matter whether it is reloadable, because the performance is hard to match at this price, especially with the large #9 payload.
