Remington Hypersonics

Is anyone shooting these and whats your opinion. Ive had a few that wouldn't fire multiple times. Had 2 geese 15yds this past weekend and 2 shells in a row didn't fire. luckily I had 1 shot left but 1 goose still escaped.
im 99% sure its not the gun.

I even tried reusing a shell that wouldn't fire 3 different times and it wouldn't fire. not smart I know. I like these shells but if it continues im switchin just looking for feedback from others.

Never had a misfire with them, but only shot 2-3 boxes. I know they kicked like a mule in my nova. Shot a few left-overs in my versa max this year and they didn't kick nearly as hard.

I like them but do not shoot them regularly as they are hard on the internals, especially trigger assemblies!!! Can not recall having any misfire and I have probably shot a case in the past 3 seasons...

Same here, never understood why one would shoot high $ shells when birds are willing to decoy at 15 yards!

Do not shoot hypersonics with a hangover. That is all I have to add.

Or lay next to someone who insists on shooting them during snow goose season. Headache galore.

From some of the stuff I've read, I wouldn't want to put them thru a gun.

I've ran through about 2-3 cases of them. And few other guys I hunt with tried them. This year one of the guys i hunt with's gun (SBE 2) decided it didn't like the hypers and wouldn't function properly with them (3 1/2 2s & bbs). Switch shells problems gone.

Last year my gun (SBE 2) decided that it didn't like to cycle the 1 1/8 ounce hypers....but would cycle 1 ounce dove loads (go figure). I also didn't like the results i got goose hunting (3.5 bbs), misfires, cycling issues, just flat out missed you name it.
I won't buy anymore myself.

But I do have to admit those 1 1/4 ounce number 4s are wicked in a timber hole

made this mistake this morning. It made me want to throw the box in the river. I personally am not a fan even when clear headed 3"er 2 shot kicks twice as bad as 3 1/2 heavy metals through my nova

When you find a shell that fires multiple times, lmk as I'm sick of floating the fourth.

A buddy used to shoot them all the time. They are H O T!! Then seen lots of pics of destroyed guns and quit using them!!! I have never heard of any misfires, I shoot metals and wouldn't use anything else. However those Hypersonics are the reason he is the proud owner of a Tundra Swan straight outta NoDak!!! Very impressive 70 yard skybust!!!

Remington Steel shells have a notorious history from day one. Ever wonder why they are (were) usually the cheapest on the shelf? I tried them from day one. Too many poofs instead of bangs and the steel would roll out of the barrel, wad get stuck, not fire at all etc. etc. All companies had problems at the start but Remington's seemed to stay with them to the present. If somebody w/me is shooting the hyper I make sure I'm in the other end of the blind!!

One of they guys I hunt with sometimes used them this year. They broke the extractor on a new 11-87, broke the stock on an 870, and blew the bolt back into permanently locked on a Russian semi-auto. Since he more or less ran out of guns to shoot, he gave up using the shells.....

I won't shoot them

He's kinda of a slow learner I take it.

Why anyone would shot something that would wreck a gun is beyond me.
The stuff I shoot is 1300 FPS.I don't have any trouble killing them.
That fast stuff just makes a poor shooter that can't get the lead right a little better I guess.

I have shot them. I dislike them. Better shells and the FPS is marketing more than anything. I have a box if anyone is interested. Birds finished 5-7 yards Saturday and Monday. Killing Canadas with 3s.

I shot one box last year and it was enough. They ran well in my gun and killed the birds I hit. But there was no advantage over the kents I use and the felt recoil was really bad.
