RST Classic Shotshells

Guess I am probably late to the game but has anybody done business with these folks?

http://www.rstshells.com/

Looks like they make a nice variety of product, but I haven't seen much in reviews about them.

Unbelievable GOB.. Was talking with my doc at the office the other day and he told me he has been buying and shooting tghese shells. He has a couple of european SxSs in 2 1/2 inch chamber. He even had a few in his office and showed 'em to me. I must say though..they ARE "spensive. He said he likes 'em but they still pound him a bit in the very light doubles he has. One is a 16 ga and weighs 2 1/2 lbs We were discussing reloading and I sent him an adapter so he can load 2 1/2 inch on his Mec 600Jr They are still a pain to load..But i have data etc.. And to make pretty loads the ends of the cases have to be skivved. With the factory machines crimps are done in a different way and skivving is not necessary. I'd love to have the use of a factory loading machine for one day.in 20 ga.. I'd be set for life...LOL

Skeet, I have a (I believe) Belgium or French made double that uses 2 1/2 inch shells. I use the RST but haven't shot it in a couple years. It isn't a real light weight so is comfortable to shoot. It says Le Taures of Milau on the bottom inlaid in gold. Side clips, double chopper lumps, locks up like a bank vault. Don't think it would lock up with paper between the face and the barrels. The action is engraved with a coin finish. I think it came to the US after WW1. The stock looks to be tesseris french walnut. the stock has been "distressed" but just needs to be refinished. It has been long time.
