Never even heard of them, never mind seeing them. Who makes them and what prices are they ?

I've shot a few that other have given me to try, i find them a bit punchier than some and less punchy than others. They break clays just fine and they are relatively inexpensive.

What I can say is that the amount of misfires i've witnessed by folks who do shoot them is high. I regularly shoot with guys who use them and there is at least one misfire per shooter per 100 birds every time.

I've shot thousands and never experienced any misfire or had any issue at all. That's the first I've heard of any problems. And to be honest, find it hard to believe that any brand of cartridge would have 'at least one misfire per 100 cartridges'?

For what it's worth, I like them. Reasonable price, they go bang every time and sometimes the clays I shoot break, often they don't. But that's down to me .

I've also used their subsonic shells in a sound moderated gun, and they are good.

I could be wrong but think they are Italian made and again would need to double check but an ounce load in a typical clay cartridge is about £180 per k. Or thereabouts

I got them in 34g 5s ..... for high pheasants and 50g 3s for geese 

Sure you will find them ideal. 

I've only used the clay loads but find them perfect for me.

Well the Pegoraro are an extremely good cartridge ..... I used the minimags on geese with success and the 36g on high pheasants . Both were clean and recoil was ok ...... value 8/10 performance 9/10 and cleanliness 9/10 ...... out on the crows with 32g 5s next ......I’ll let you know

Figgy they are as good as it gets . I’m on a high bird shoot for the next 2 weekends I’ll tell you more then . I usually use cheddite elite but it’s a run and a half to Malmo guns from fife . The pegeraro are in ayreshire and a mate brings them up ....... but aye a decent shell
