To good to be true...115 AH Grp 27?

Was in Costco, they have a Kirkland brand Grp 27 wet cell 12V battery that is advertised to have a 115AH rating. That's pretty good if it's honest. Anyone have experience with the Kirkland brand battery -- supposed to be made by same folks that make Interstate batteries.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Does seen a bit high for a 27. Is it a true deep cycle or a "dual" starting/deep cycle. The dual ones have a shorter life.

The marine Group 27s I've seen at the Costco in our area (Virginia) are labeled as dual purpose. The Group 24s are labeled as deep cycle. Don't know if that's true at all Costcos. I generally trust Costco's Kirkland brand--so I purchased 2 of the Group 24s as my house bank last year, and one of the Group 27s as my backup battery.
