Academy Sports had these on sale for $2.38 a box so I bought 2 cases. I used them for the first time on a SC course this morning. I have one case of #8 and one case of #7 1/2, if I remember correctly. I used the #8's today with my 870 Express Magnum.
I had a few FTE that I was able to clear and still make the second shot on the true pair or report pairs. But, considering that I had maybe 4 of those, it wasn't really a big problem. Plus, I'm still breaking in my 870 Express 12 gauge and probably only have 250 shells through it.
Honestly, these appear to be a really good value especially considering it is dove season and you go through alot of shells with them anyway (at least I do!).
