What makes them better is usually the name on the box and who is sponsoring the video or shooter!!!

 

If they fit in your gun, go bang and you put the shot in the right place cost is irrelevant!!!

a good cartridge is a consistent performer, with low shot to shot variation.

-produces nice even patterns at set range.

 

there is no point shooting 1/2 oz #6 loads at geese and say they are the best shells in the world,

or,

shooting a 10gauge 2,1/4 buffered buckshot at mice.

As long as they go bang !! Can pay up to a quid a cart ! And yet a 4 quid box will do the same ...

 

the quid a bang will be bismuth or similar so legal on wildfowl and will work a lot better than the steel 5's you are comparing them with.

 

As cookoff says consistency and quality of components do have a bearing as does the load size, but generally a half decent 32g 6 will kill most game. If you start comparing with lighter clay loads which are the cheapies then there is a fair difference if you want clean kills and to be able to kill at a reasonable range. i shoot clear pigeon on most things but do buy a couple of cases of xtreme game for pheasants and I find the difference worthwhile
