Default Suprema 00 Buckshot? Anyone Know of it?



Advertise Here

Have any of you encountered or tried this buckshot? I have never heard of it prior to seeing it on the shelf at Wal-Mart. The price is what caught my eye. $11.97 for a box of 25. They are made in Spain by Tula. I fired a few just to feel the recoil, and they are definitely stout. The "low brass" look is deceiving, as the powder is loaded well over the brass base. The powder itself is unusual, with a bright silver color. I've never seen shotgun powder this color. Any info would be appreciated, as these are definitely a great ammo prep option. My local store attendant said they were listed as a promotional item and may possibly be a one time product. I bought the last 4 boxes.

If it is made outside of the USA then I stay away from it.

There is a reason why it is cheaper.

Some of the crappiest wimpiest ammunition in the world is made in the US of A.

S&B is the oldest ammunition manufacturer in the world, but obviously doesn't know what it's doing of course. Or Fiocchi, since 1876. Never had a dud from anything Russian in any caliber. All the .223 out of there is hotter than Federal Bulk for example too. PMC generally loaded nice and hot to upper end of spec, unlike most average puny American miserly charges. Nobel Sport excellent shot shells, hottest 2.75" buck I ever found. Etc.

It's made by Tula in Spain and Walmart sells it for $12 per 25 as the OP said, try it and you'll buy more.

Suprema 00 Buck test.

I agree with you that there is some sucky American ammo. But that doesn't mean all American ammo is sucky.

As far as non American made ammo is concerned, there are good ones and bad ones too. I just don't like to buy stuff that is made overseas. Simple as that.

I've bought four boxes of it so far from Wally World
I've so far shot one box. Seemed to shoot well and patterned like normal federal or remmy buckshot. Shoots good and is very inexpensive, what's not to like ?

Holy crap! Now that's cheap! At that price I would be cleaning them out quick. My preliminary tests have all be positive. Shoots the same as Rio and other budget loads. Only odd thing is it sends out a little cloud of confetti paper.

I bought a box for $12 at WallyWorld a couple weeks ago. Have not tried it yet.

The WORST ammo I have ever bought/used was Rem .22s, ANY model, ANY price, ANY year. The so called "top of the line" to the bulk pack junk, it ALL blew the rims in a dozen different rifles and handguns. Rem was always good about "oh we had a few soft rims get through, here are a few boxes" that blew rims in every rifle and handgun, year after year after year. I won't even buy Rem .22 if I could find it now!

I've shot a box of it of an 870P. Printed good out to 35 yards. Kicks like any buckshot. It's hard to get where I live as many are buying it as soon as it comes in.

Yeah, we get it. You are a bit off topic with your anti Remington rant. Never had an issue myself and if your stories weren't blatant lies, they would never sell any ammunition.

Back on topic...

There are at least two systems for denoting the size of buckshot. Be aware that what the Western Europeans for 00 buck would like be 0 or number 1 in the American system.

I had a box of wolf 9mm that had enough failure to fire that I quit shooting it in my glock.

Now settle down fellas. Lol. Off topic yes, but I think there is a shred of truth there. From my humble experience, Rem .22 ammo has probably been the lowest quality I've seen. It shoots dirty, powder charges can vary greatly, and you can spin the bullet in the neck of the case for pete sake! Very loose specs. That said, it still has performed decently in most of my guns. Would still be my last choice. Luckily I'm well set on .22
