You must be shooting some of the left over Spanish ones -- I've been shooting them for a year, and the ones made in Tennesee don't smell at all and are very clean.

I haven't shot Rios for at least 2-3 years. I bought them to try out of my auto (aka back up/ bad weather gun) they did ok out of that, but are terrible out of the o/u.

I agree with Seamus.
Rios for practice and competition.
They are available all the time at good prices and are reliable and clean burning and do break targets.
The Remington Gun Clubs would be my second choice.
The Federals and the Estates are very dirty and do cause malfunction problems in the semi autos. I have witnessed this myself.
Also, to my nose the Estates have the foulest smelling burnt powder - awful.

Those would have been the Spanish ones, and they definitely put out batches that were bordering on horrible. You should know that it's an entirely different shell now, and IMHO represents an outstanding bargain offering excellent quality for the price.

be that as it may, I'll stick to Remington and Winchester offerings.

If you reload 12g Remington hands down. If you are thinking about reloading Remington you can sell the hulls easily or have someone buy you lunch if you decide to keep with store bought. Not Reloading Rio or Remington.... I like the variety of loads available with Rios.

I have patterned them all and have shared 3 pallets of rios over the last two years..TS28 are a great shell especially for 51 a flat.
I have been thinking of using a less recoiling shell and have experimented with high end ones. I can get pallets of fioochi at a fair price as well as B&P...They are quite a bit more and pattern beautifully not to mention that the recoil on the B&P and little rhinos are sweet...
Out of the ones mentioned by far the Rios are #1. They pattern real good and have nice hard round shot. The recoil on the gun clubs is nasty. The feds are filthy and I have never shot the super target except for the super speed ones which sent my shoulder back into the future! BTW the pattern on the super speeds was the worst I have ever seen.
If I could convince my buds to go fioochi i would shoot the litte rhinos which pattern way better out of my gun than the heaver white rinos...But at 13 dollars more a flat I think it will be more Rios....

RIO and then Gun Clubs. Don't know about the others. Gun Club for me would be #1 if they made a faster 1 oz load. I like the 1280fps 1oz RIO.

IMHO:

Rio Target Load (Top Sporting 1 oz.)
Winchester Super Target (really nice 1 oz)
Remington Gun Club
Estate Super Sport Competition Target
Federal Top Gun

The last two are the dirtiest in a gas auto.
