They only use them on their mature cows and use angus bulls on their heifers. They sell all of the charX calves and claim that it has really helped raise weaning weights.
Twenty years ago I had a neighbors charolais bulls breed some of my cows. Since the white and grey colored calves didn't fit the load of calves I was selling I kept the heifers as replacements thinking that I would throw a black angus bull back on them and get black calves- no way- still got grey or white calves. Being bullheaded, I kept this crosses heifers as replacements. Now, twenty years later, I still have about 20 head of grey cows left in the herd- they are moderate framed and built more like angus than a charolais and even though most don't have anymore than an 1/8 Charolais, they will still throw an occasional grey or white calf, when bred to a black angus bull.
