I got screwed years ago when Activ sold out.. I moved to white hevis and upon discontinuation bought ALOT.. With Environmetal it is good to even stock up when you find a lot number that does well for you because they are constantly changing not only shells but components.. Sad thing is alot of folks cannot afford to do so at some of the ammo prices today.
Do you think the Win Longbeards will change over time? Win changed the XR shell.
You know thats the scary part.. Sometimes they are at the mercy of their suppliers and sometimes they change components to make another nickel a box.. I think the biggest thing is the resin, lets hope its made in house with widely available whatever it is, the wad appears to be nothing special and they have no buffer to change.. I thought the Fed HWs were the shell not subject to change, no buffer, flight control wad, but some note differences in lots.
