I was wondering what you guys think of the quality of Sellier & Bellot 12 guage ammo (field and buckshot loads).

I actually use S&B OOBuck in my shotguns and I have to say i am very happy with the quality of the ammo. Never incountered any problems what so ever with it! I give it a thumbs up.

Shoots reliably and consistently. Patterns larger than most loads, in some cases twice the size, and tends to be a little dirtier than some of the big US names. Maybe not "premium" shells, but good quality, and quite easy on the pocketbook.

RAE was telling me about S&B last week
00 buck for an extremely good price...around $6-7 for a box of 25.
And the above comments as well

Agree with John O.

I shoot the S&B "00" and the #4 buck. The S&B has at least 2x the pattern diameter when compared to an American made shell.

That may be good or bad depending on the application.

Cabela's has cases of 200 rounds for 59.95

Kicks/hits hard, wide spread. If I ever get around to scanning it, I have a few pics from Nov, when I fired about 25 rounds of S&B 00, in addition to other 12 GA rounds. My right bicep was swollen to twice its normal state...
