This NobelSport ammo has the highest velocity(1250FPS) of several different brands of 16 gauge shotgun ammo that I have tested. Other brands tested as low as 1050FPS up to 1150FPS with similar shot weights. Pattern of shot on paper at 25 yards was good and consistent--no holes in pattern. Been looking for ammo for my old Browning Auto 5 to get back into skeet shooting and believe this do the job. Good price. Will buy more when all the other brands are shot up.
