    I usually always shoot Kent's but now I heard they have a bad batch this year like what happened with hevi metal few years back.. so I'm gonna use up the rest of my Kent's I have and probably go with speed shoks or xperts

    Ridiculous aversion to Kent shell. They are still good shells. Any lot that has an issue will be resolved. All ammo manufacturers have the occasional lot with issues. High speed mass production will always spit out a few flawed product. Keep shooting Kents. Just avoid the one lot with a problem.

    Some would say, all considerations taken, Experts are the way to go.

    I saw someone just say, Macks has them on sale for $99 per case, with a $2 per box rebate.
