Not the greatest
The pattern of these shells at 40 yards using a Beretta Urika and modified Trulock choke were not the greatest. I got better pattern with Winchester Supreme. I cut open one of those shells to see what is inside. It had a mix of pellets, one type seems to be steel which was all of the same size and uniform shape, however, the heavy metal pellets were all deformed, with bumps, and of all sizes and shapes. I went geese hunting with these shells, they kill instantly when they hit. I never got a jam or a misfire, but I wouldn't expect these defects from shells with that price. After looking at the content of the shell and the pattern they produced I would feel very reluctant to buy them again.No

I tried these last year. They worked really well. I shot 3" 12 gauge #2; I had no birds get away, and rarely had to shot the same bird twice.

Best Shells for the Money
I used these shells for the first time in December goose hunting. Wow! 1 shot kills out to 40yds. They cycled perfectly in my Benelli SBE2. They are just as good or better than Winchester Supreme at less money!

good but bad
I used these shells the other morning and out of the one box 3 shells did not fire. I think i will stay with kent

Everything fires at the same velocity, the difference is the density in the steel (50% of the load) and the hevishot (other 50% of the load). The heavier hevishot maintains its downrange energy better and therefore flies further and hits harder. At closer distances where the steel is effective, the smaller hevishot pellets just provide pattern density to fill any holes in the pattern.
These loads are a duplex load. They actually have 2 different kinds of pellets in them, on is a smaller Environmetal pellet and the other is a larger Steel pellet. this maximizes effective range and energy, and puts more pellets into the kill zone, or pattern. always remember to use the best chokes you can afford. i like to use the HEVI-Shot choke tubes for maximum effectiveness.
it makes alot of differance steel shot is light and doesnt patern well lead being best has high density shoots further and hits hard. hevi shot is a blend of iron and other metals alot hevier than steel. just not as heavy as lead. or you can buy tungsten or bismuth rounds and break the bank. they are denser than lead. your answer to density throw a sponge doesnt go far hits something no damage throw a brick the same size and damage
No you do not. As long as you are shooting a choke that is approved for steel you should be fine. But as always read the manufactors recomindations on what size and what loads to shoot through your choke
Nope! But HEVI-Shot choke tubes are specifically designed to maximize your pattern density with the heavier loads. We use these loads to minimize losses and cripples and to bag more birds at the end of the day. We use the chokes for the same reason!
no modified choke for larger shot size is recomended however any brand that fits your gun will do. choose a good choke that can handle steel if needed and you can use for all your needs ( kicks high flyer choke tubes )
