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.
