Big Shooter, go to Kemen's website and send John an e-mail. He will have the closest distributor contact you via e-mail for pricing and availability.

Have you shot them? What is your opinion of them?

Good Shells, very very similar to Rio's if not the same.

UEE loads RIO and Kemen shotshells, so it is a bit like comparing Remington shells and Remington shells. Last I heard, Kemen was using 5% antimony shot in all their shells, RIO uses 5 in the "high brass" loads and softer shot in the low brass loads.

if you have the same shells we have here in Oz the Kemen Supers in a pink shell 1220fps 5% antimony
Extras in a black shell 1280fps 5% antimony
Supremas white shell 1265fps Diamond shot
these are there 28 gram loads
I have stripped and compared the components from Kemen and Rio powders appear indentical (only in looks!!) they use different wads my guess is the Rio Star Teams would the same shell

well we must have had a bad batch then. The Trap&Skeet Team at Ohio State purchased about 25 flats of Kemen #8s and #7.5. a LOT of the shells were swollen so badly they wouldn't find in any 12 gauge chamber.

Other than that they seemed to fire fine.
