Breaks have more to do with the shooters ability to center a target. Has nothing to do with the shot in a shell.

Keep on believing that.

I'd agree there is line drawn at someplace. But to believe there is no line drawn, well, keep on believing that.

I'll take a great shot with promo shells over an average shot with expensive shells. If the shot swarm isn't in the right place it doesn't matter. Equipment like expensive shells, fancy chokes and expensive guns doesn't buy you targets. Learn to shoot. For the top 2% of shooters shells might make a difference for a target or 2. When the top shots miss they don't blame shells, chokes or guns. Using your equipment as an excuse for a miss is very poor form.

So I just opened another of these along with a Rio Elite 1oz and a B&P F2 Mach 1 1/8.

After measuring 15 pellets from each:
- B&P pretty consistent and slightly smaller (.092) than other two. Pretty silver polished look. Many if not all had flat sides.
- Rio Pretty consistent and more true to size (.095) than the other two.
- AA Diamond looked like garbage compared to the others. Biggest variation in sizes from .101 to .088 or so. Plenty out of round. Inconsistent coating. Does pellet hardness matter when the shot starts out oval?
