The lead shot loaded in Remington shells is made in their uniquely designed 11 story shot tower located in Lanoke, Arkansas. Their process starts out with 90 lb lead "pigs" that are raised up an 11 story tower where they are melted down and poured through a sizing screen. The lead droplets fall like rain down an 11 story tower landing in a pool of chilled water resulting in some of the hardest shot available in the market. Next, the cooled shot is ran through several more quality control processes to ensure uniform shot size and shape.
The next time you take to the field you can rest assured knowing the amount of forethought and engineering that has gone into the crafting of your ammo.

- These shells all worked, but only out to about 15 yards. Review by JCS
They didn't pack enough energy to do more than remove some feathers from Mourning Doves over about fifteen yards out; and therefore didn't bring down many birds. I compared them to Winchester "High-Brass" #6-shot 20's in the same field, on the same flock of birds the next day, and had far more hunting success. Of course, the Winchester shells cost almost twice the price. (Posted on 11/13/13)
