Things I liked:Sturdy construction, albeit plastic. Reloadable. Quiet in your pocket or pouch - no metallic jingle, as with pellets in tins, metallic cartridges, and so on.
Things I would have changed:Might be nice if they would come out with a metal version, say of brass. A small reloading kit would be nice.
What others should know:Reloading these things is a hoot. All you need is some foam sheet (2mm works for me) from your local hobby store (a couple sheets will do a LOT of shells), a handheld paper punch, and shot. The procedure is as follows: 1. Punch two circles of foam for each shell (one for the base wad, and one for over shot wad). 2. Place the shell base down on a hard surface and insert the base 'wad' into the mouth of the shell and press it down with the eraser end of a pencil, dowel, etc. Make sure that it doesn't escape the other end. 3. Insert the proper number of pellets (see below). 4. Carefully insert the overshot wad on top of the pellets. 5. Optional: Run a bead of nail polish around the mouth of case to ensure the wad stays in place. Size:Shot Chart Shot Shot Size Count #9 23 #8-1/2 18 #8 13 #7-1/2 12 #7 10 #6 9 They will take out those little Shatterblast targets, too. Range and hold being spot on.
Things I liked:These little shotshells have all functioned as expected and without any failures.
Things I would have changed:Pricing seems a little high, possibly because of a small volume produced or because of a lack of competition. I would like to see them offered in a selection of shot sizes OR I would like to see the necessary components for reloading the shotshells offered for purchase. This would enable reloading with the proper components rather than using field expedients such as 7/32" plugs cut from flexible materials to retain the shot which do not always function properly when fired
What others should know:Do a little experimentation for penetration at various ranges BEFORE attempting to hunt or shoot varmints because, depending on what you are after the pattern may be a little too large to ensure an adequate number of hits to ensure a kill.. most animals REQUIRE a goodly number of hits with this small shot before they will go down - one or two pellets isn't enough.
Things I liked:These turn a Gamo "Express" into the only affordable air shotgun on the market. Easy to insert and remove from the breech.
Things I would have changed:I wish these were available with slightly heavier shot loads. While I'm dreaming, how about an Air Force Talon barrel chambered for shotshells.
What others should know:You wouldn't think that 17 grains of #9 shot at 725 fps would do much, but these really do pack a punch. Shot goes through both sides of a soda can.
