I saw the these at my closest Walmart, they were the cheapest shells they had at $5 a box and they were better made than the more expensive Winchester and federal shells. They functioned perfectly out of the v12. Was going to take a pic. of my trap thrower that I bolted to a pallet. Now I just pick up the pallet with the forklift attachment on my tractor and drive it up to the house and load the guns skeet and shells up on it and drive it into position to shoot. I adjust for angle with the lift so the angles are unlimited.

Sounds like a pretty slick setup...

It would be nice to see pics of it and the ammo.

Thanks for the report!

I hope mine will start to eat those without failures. I tried 1 box and had about a 20% fail rate on the first time I went and shot it.

as usual.... visit a few walmarts.
my walmart has little ammo... but a few miles away..... flooded aisles!
i picked up 12 boxes of suprema 12g
3-1/4 dram 1314 vel
low brass 5.88+ tax a box. Suprema(tula) high brass jumps to 12.00 a box!
4cents a shell more than their cheapo
winchester 1200fps/ 3dram bulk shells. a good deal.
i'm stocking up on vepr food!

I'm still going to see if my Vepr cycles 1200/3dram winchester......every Vepr seems different so who knows?

Its excellent ammo. Why even waste your money on the cheap Win and Fed?If it runs good, like It does In my shotguns, buy it by the case.The Suprema Buck Shot is really good too.

The suprema I used was low brass 3 1/4 dram. They use Star line hulls which I like and reload well. Next time I'm in town I'm going to go buy up the rest. With shot $50 a bag you can't reload it that cheap. We have tons of sharptailed grouse this year so need to stock up not to mention duck season around the corner.

No doubt....i'll be picking up a bunch more of the Suprema. I have a new ammo philosophy...... Stay stocked with what you use so you can laugh the next time the market flips out!!
That and .....never assume your local wally world will be stocked up when you need it. NEVER !
I'm not worried about the winchester bulk i bought....got a few other 12's that need food!

WOW.....I Just pulled out a Suprema shell and a Walmart Winchester cheapo shell .
It is easy to depress the winchester shells plastic while the suprema shell is a much thicker and more rigid shell. The brass is slightly taller and the crimped end on the suprema leaves the shell in a more uniform ,smooth round shape. Better feeding i'll bet.
. I'm sold......i'm sure these with work great in my Vepr and my KSG.
Glad i stocked up on 24 boxes.
5.88 each.
