im fowlmouth on thisNot my favorite. IMO you would be better off with the Winchester Xperts, and they are the same price for 3" shells. Rogers Sporting Goods has Federal steel for $119 case w/free shipping. The Fiocchis are $114 a case with free shipping.
Whatever you decide to get I would recommend you buy 1 box and pattern your gun. One brand may shoot totally different in your gun than another.
diverfreak I wouldn't have xperts if I was given them for free as I personally have had problems with every box I have purchased. Try both and see what works best[/QUOTE said:thats crazy, i'v used xperts for the past 5 years or so, and have had no problem, and I slam dunk birds with them...sometimes I jump over to Kent. what kind of problems are you having with them??
me to i have been shooting them about that long maybe longer and I have never had any problems with them.kill birds just fine with them.thats crazy, i'v used xperts for the past 5 years or so, and have had no problem, and I slam dunk birds with them. what kind of problems are you having with them??
I thought I was the only one who used those lol.Jeez you guys, shotgun shells are the one place you shouldn't be trying to save money. It's worth it to pay a little extra for quality. That's why I shoot those new Hevishot Ultra Golds, they are pure Hevishot plated with 24 karat gold. They guarantee that they will kill ducks 27% deader, and they will pattern 100% at 95 yards. Sportsman's has them on sale now, they're only $1599 per case, totally worth it!
I never count my shells fired, I count my birds though. I'm one of those dudes that shoots 100+ ducks a season, so factor in the misses i'd say an average of a bird every 2 or 3 shots, so about 300-500 rounds of steel shot a season I would guess
