In guns designed to use modern 2 3/4-inch shells(I would think that this includes Ithaca NIDs), they are a very good value. A little dirty, but otherwise great performance for the money. In an older, much lighter gun, however, I don't think a steady diet is a good idea.

They have too much recoil for my SXS guns. I shoot them in a M 31 Remington then use the hulls for light shot load low recoil target loads.

I guess that would depend on what your vintage doubles are in 16 gauge. I go by the rule if the gun was built with the correct chamber size I really don't worry about the load. I just don't run a steady diet of them.

I have not shot as many as tut, but I'd tend to agree. 1 oz 8's @ 1165 fps in a Sterlingworth that's just over 6#, not an issue for me in the recoil department. Just checked a box. They are marked with the CIP seal, so pressure shouldn't be a consideration as long as you're shooting a gun with 2 3/4" chambers.

I wouldn't shoot anything in a gun if I were concerned about its ability to handle ammo loaded to SAAMI spec.

My only interest in the Herters stuff was so I could toss the empties from my 1100 and not pick them up. They won't cycle my gun.
