After my response to someones post early about is Hevi shot worth it or not, I wanted to post this.

I have had problems with the Hevi-shot brand shells coming apart at the ends, allowing the pellets and buffer stuff to come out and have also had problems with the rim of the brass, getting bummed up and the gun not being able to grab them properly. But other than that, they have always patterned really good. I now use winchester extended range, about the same price and patterns about the same for me.

I just haven't cared much for Hevi-shot brand shells since Remington quit making them.

I've been shooting Hevi-Shot shells for years and I've had no problems whatsoever with them. Now the old green Remington Hevi-Shot always had the buffer leak out of their shell.

never had any of that with mine and ive shot them the past 4 years. Shot #7's #6's and Magblends in both 3" and 3.5"

as i said in the other thread, when i shot 7's there seemed to be good and bad lot numbers but have not seen anything like that in the 6's or magblends.

I had it happen with a couple of batches of 3 in Number 5 Hevi Shot shells. Tan shells. After a few times cycled through my 870, the crimps would split a little. I "fixed" them with a little hot wax dripped on the end, but they aren't super durable

I have had some of my Hevi shells "leak" some of the buffer due to poor crimps.... Just take and smear some Elmers glue over the crimp.... when you shoot, it will just flake off and out the barrel with the shot.
