The Eley cartridges contain an average of 283 pellets. They contain a short plastic wad with short skirt, and a half-length shot cup. They are crimped with a 6-point star closure. The case is a standard 2½” parallel tube plastic case, supplied in red with Eley branding printed in white. There is noticeable variation in the size of the shot, as is common with the very small sizes. A roll test showed that only two or three pellets were noticeably deformed.
