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
