Sportsman Hi-Speed Steel offers all the dependability and performance you would expect from Remington® ammunition without breaking the bank. Sportsman® Hi-Speed Steel's sealed primer, high quality steel shot, and consistent muzzle velocities combine to provide reliability in adverse weather, while delivering exceptional pattern density and retained energy. An economical, high-speed steel load that is ideal for high-volume duck hunting any time of year. Sportsman Steel works equally as well in upland situations that require the use of non-toxic shotshells.
Changed from 18 years of Nitro-Steel to Sportsman Steel four seasons ago. Have not seen a drop-off in results; in fact, have seen my birds/shot ratio improve (I keep detailed logs). While this may not be soley because of the ammunition, it does tell me that the Sportsman load I've settled on will kill ducks if I do my part. Good value in non-tox ammo.

what are they doing ?
i've been using these shells religiously for 4 years. opening weekend i used my last 3 boxes from what was left from last year, i was killing birds. now my dog hates me she's doing more work than ever, nothing but wounded ducks. i make on average 35 hunts a season, i ordered 2 cases again like normal, these shots no longer pattern well, they dont kill birds, i have completely broken down my shotgun 5 times so far this season cause the shells are leaving every thing in the chamber. they have become straight up garbage. 4 of my hunting friends all switched to the same shots that ive been using because of the success ive had with taking the ducks to certain death, now their all cursing me , lol. we've had many hunts this season where we're knocking boat loads of feathers off of decoying ducks and watch them fly off and never see them fall till they're a 6-7 hundred yards away. dont know what remington did to these shells.

Good value for the money
I have used these shells for many years as they are a great value for the price.
I have had very few jams or miss fires. I have used 3 & 4s for the most part. I am referring here to the 1400 fps 3". I would not recomend the 3 1/2 as in the cases (2) I have gone through, I beleive I had about a5% jam rate (SBE)
I have always had good success but have had a good number of cripples. All the same, they are reliable, and take down ducks quite well.
