A couple of weeks ago I asked about Diana Shells. After a couple of responses I said I would report on my experience after I had shot some of them.

Well the last 2 times out I used the Diana shells. Just so you understand where I am coming from. I usually use the cheaper Federals or the cheaper bonus pack Winchester target loads. I have shot up 6 boxes of the Diana Shells. I did not notice any difference in my performance. I did not notice my shotgun being any dirtier or cleaner after using these shells either. So in my opinion, I think they are a good value. I paid $32 for a case of 10 boxes.

Thats a great price for shells that work, I'll have to keep my eyes open and see if I can find a flat or two to try. Thanks for the report!

are these shells around the same as estate hulls? The reason I ask is for reloading?

I do wish I could find shipping info though. Other that seems to be a fairly good deal if shipping is with in reason.

Not even close, and don't bother. Good shells, but the hulls are CRAP!! :cry:

Perfect to shoot thru a semi-auto. Let 'em fly.

I don't reload so I can's speak for the hulls, but Shooting Star had an opinion so I would say go with that one.

I bought them at the Hock Shop in Port Huron, MI. Its a pawn shop. I bought my bow from them and every now and then I go in and see what's new in the used gun rack.

So I guess I can't interest you in half a dozen ammo cans full of Estate once fired hulls? :lol: Seriously though I must stand in defense of Estate Shells. The reloading side of them may not be worth while, but the shells themselves shoot every bit as good as the Remington bottom shelf shells or the Winchester Super-X.

I think you misunderstood my post. I made no negative comment about Estates. I only said that the Diana hulls are "not even close" to the Estates.

But no, I'm not interested in any 12 ga. hulls. :lol:

I just finished shooting over 4500 rounds of 12 ga. @ the Southern Grand, Dixie, and Fla. State Trap Shoot. They are great! I have shot every thing from "AA"'s to Nitro 27's. These perform great. I highly recommend them
