Estate shotgun shells

I purchased a number of cases of Estate 1oz. shells and the wife and I have been shooting them on and off in practice.

We've had five or six shells that just didn't do the job in providing enough energy to allow the second shell in a Remington 1100 or Beretta A400 to load properly.

During the same time span I've also been shooting RIO and Nobel Sport shells and never a problem.

When it happens in my A400 the second Estate shell will load, but not set the firing pin.  I can hear it when it happens, as the bolt normally cycles very fast, but slows when it come across a weak Estate.

If I run across another deal on Estate's I will purchase for practice, but will never use in tournament shooting!
