who's ordered or tried the blue Hornady Tap from ammo to go?


here's the problem, it says 9 pellet and that's why I bought it. However, on the label it says 1600 fps and that's normally attributed to the 8 pellet loads. I look around and everywhere says the Hornady #8626 is an 8 pellet load...can anyone chime in?

Stock numbers aside, it makes sense if Hornady makes a 1600 fps 00 load with 8 pellets, then reducing the powder for a 1100 fps lite load makes room for one more 00 pellet. What's printed on the box and the shells (can't make it out from your pic)?
Years ago, I bought a case of shells at a deep discount because the shells were mis-marked.

Can't speak to that specifically, however, all of the new 12 gauge tap that they have released recently has been excellent!

Do you have the ammo in hand? If so, cut a round open and see what is in it.
