I could not resist these at my LGS. It's the type of store where you are expected to stay and shoot the breeze, even has stools to sit on. They keep a wall of the store for small stuff on consignment and the kinds of stuff widows find in the basement when the they are cleaning out the house.

The two on the left are 2 9/16 inch 1 1/8 ounce sixes and the one on the right is a stout 2 3/4 inch 1 1/4 ounce six shot. Great condition roll crimped paper shells.

Iíll definitely shoot them. I used up a bunch of 8 shot paper shells going after woodcock and it was an epic day. The aroma was intoxicating. I jokingly told my wife that if Iím ever in a coma just waive a freshly fired paper shell under my nose backed up by a whiff of Hoppes. Should bring me back in a heartbeat.

Yeah, these are a little stout for my classic SXS's.

My Winchester model 12 Skeet, Ithaca 37 and Browning Citori's will eat these up though.
