Do not argue with an idiot they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

The last few days I have been shooting the Blackcloud, 3", #4's.  It has been performing very well.  Every bird has been stone dead.  I think my gun is liking the load.

H20 - I've been curious to try the 4's but i do A LOT of pass shooting. I imagine you're wrecking on committed ducks. Are you using the same load this year? Would you still use 4's on 30-40 yd pass shots? Thanks

I just picked up a box of 3 1/2" hevi-metal #3 I believe, and some hevi-shot 3" 2 shot. or something. I'm trying a  few new things. I REALLY want to see what these hevi shots do to a bird. i'm going to pull them out in 2 weeks when I go snow goosin.

Ive been using low velocity (1300fps) Winchester #4s, 3 1 1/4oz for both release site pheasants and ducks so far this year and they have been working great.  In fact they were ripping the pheasants up so much I had to go to a more open choke.  Im shooting them out of a skeet over IC for pheasants and an IC for ducks.  Great patterns and so far zero cripples.

kent fasteel 3" 1 1/8 oz 2's and 3's
or in the winchester x-pert high velocity   both are awesome! the thing about them is they are 1550 fps rather than an 1 1/4 oz load which is normally 1440-1460 fps...
:yeah:
I noticed a big difference in shells 1500+ fps. With the exception of the new remy shells. A buddy of mine picked up a box of the remington 3" 2 1700 fps shells, tried them on the opener. had to shoot 3 times to kill a wood duck. :dunno:
Put my kent 3" 2's back in and shot 3 mallards, a teal, and a second woody in single shots, no cripples.  :IBCOOL:

I usually get what ever is cheap for ducks. If I mean business, I buy 1 3/8 oz 3'' or 3 1/2'' loads. I like 1's or bb's. That way I am coverd for ducks or geese. I am a Federal ammo guy, they have been my favorite steel load for a long time. If no Federal's, I look for Remington.

I shot the new Remington High Velocity Steel last weekend. I was IMPRESSED. 1700fps #2. It put the smack down. Its about $16 per box, not cheap, not expensive. I had two triples Sat. I haven't had a triple since I was probably 24 years old. Long shots folded them too. I also didn't change my choke from a skeet choke for shooting ducks at hunt tests too.

Brother used Black Cloud 3" 2s on a widgeon in the snow last year and gut shot it. He was able to track the blood trail for 200yds in the farmers field we were in! They do a ton of damage! :mgun:
