It's military contract overrun (assuming it's the Olin/Winchester stuff in the plain brown box with a boring label and OD green plastic hull over a black metal base). Same exact stuff made for the military. I've not heard a bad word about it- it isn't the Federal Flite Control stuff, but then again, it's generally cheaper than that stuff.

just standard production winchester/olin buckshot.

merely military bulk powder, hardened lead buckshot, military style primers. just fun.
