Remington® Pheasant Loads Shotshells
I bought the #6 shells for early season roosters when the season opens and I tuned up on crows and rock pigeons, well these shells sure made the feathers fly and got great range and patterns from them so roosters watch out. Later in the season I will get #5 shells for the longer shots and I expect very good results then.

Remington Pheasant Loads Shotshells
These shells have great knock down power and great range. I have shot many different types of shells while pheasant hunting and this is the first brand to fire each and every time.

Great Squirrel Load
I bought 12 gauge, 2 3/4, #5 shot and went hunting yesterday. After 4 shots at varying ranges, I had 4 squirrels in my bag, so you know what's for dinner tonight! Most pellets passed through the meat and lodged in the skin, or just inside the skin from where they fell when I skinned the squirrels. Recovered pellets displayed minimal deformation, so it seems like they must contain a good amount of antimony. Damage to the meat was minimal. I'm on this page ordering another box now. I don't know how these shells can be beat for less than $12.00 before tax.

Do NOT buy these shells for Autos!
I bought a case of these shells for pheasant hunting. Shotgun is a Browning Gold Hunter. They failed to eject well and caused loss of a follow up shot 20% of the time. The recoil produced was not what was needed to cock the hammer. Why? Because these high 'brass' shells are not BRASS...... they are steel with a brass wash! The steel high brass expands when fired, but fails to contract quickly or enough to clear the chamber effectively. All brass bases expand then contract for proper extraction. They may work ok in a double or pump, but they caused me a lot of wasted follow up shots by failing to eject well. Stick with Winchester.
