DLH4570-

I found the following in American Rifleman of June 1985, page 59:

U.S. shotgunners are used to seeing terms line "Magnum" and "Express" applied to shotshells. "Thrilling" is a performance level everyone hopes to see, but only recently, with the importation of Cheddite shells, is it a potentially familiar trade name.

The NRA recently testeed Cheddite Thrilling skeet ammunition ...

The Cheddite hull is made of a ribbed plastic reminiscient of the old Remington RXP. It has a six-point star crimp and black plastic base wad. The shot is contained in a bluish-tinted translucent plastic cup 1-1/2" long. ...


It appears they are Cheddite hulls.

The ones I saw were made in Spain by UEE.
