Anyone shot Estate shells? Just saw their stuff on the computer and would appreciate input. Good price, pretty fast for factory fodder. I shoot Bennelis if that is any factor.

Last year I ran into a pinch and the only 3 1/2 inch 12 ga. shells I could find at the Sporting Goods store were a box of Estate BBB shells. I shoot a Remington 870 super mag and I had good success with the box I ran thru it. The price was not too bad either.

I ran a post on another board a month ago asking the same question and the responses were good enough that I ordered a case of them. That should last me two years!!!! Anyway, hope this helps.

my group went through about 5 cases last year and know the results of another 5 cases. Not one problem arose from the shell. We shot ducks with 3 inch 11/4 #2's with great results. Wish I had ordered some 4's though for early season widgeon and gadwalls.

I have been shooting Estates for 4 yrs. I use aobut 6-8 cases per season. THEY ARE AWESOME no other shell comes close except bismuth. They have the same knock down power as BIsmuth I think or real close. They hit like a ton of bricks.

USA Shooting is out of the BBB in 3.5 inch, but I was able to get the \m from Ableammo out of Texas. I'm exicted to try them out.

Smell that powder
