Herter's Steel Shotshells?

Recommended Posts

 Anyone shooting them? Or know who makes them now-a-days?  I like the case prices and they seem plenty available.

Google says " Cheddite of Italy".

That's what I came up with also. However most of the information I read was before the Bass Pro takeover. I remember they threatened to discontinue Herter's shells and clearanced them out.  A better worded question may have been " Has Herter's changed since the takeover?" 

 

 At $10 a box, it really isn't much of a gamble to just give them a shot.

My thoughts are that any commercially available ammunition is going to be held to a high standard as there is way to much to lose (on more ways than one) by putting out a bad product.
 

 Buy a box, if it patterns well, you then have an affordable option.

Since the Hevi- Shot offering I used last year went up $3 a box this year. I'm certainly looking around at more affordable options.  Lord help me when all these boys get big enough to shoot and I'm feeding five guns...

You and I are similar in that we keep our boys in the woods and on the water.  A couple boxes of shells each (even if it’s weekly) is a whole lot cheaper than the police showing up at the front door.
