Winchester Blind Side Waterfowl Load Shotshells
No choke on game day!!!!
Two seasons now I have have used 12 ga 3 1/2" #2 Blind sides on big water and fields. Between smoking divers at 70 mph @ 40 yds and dumping snows and Canadians these shells flat out shoot better. I am in an area that doesn't really stock much in the way of water fowling gear so when I can i stock up. Compared to the Xpert stuff they sell at the local stores this stuff is pure cubed gold. Take the time and spend the extra money to pattern them. Mine shot well out of my improved choke, but i had similar results from Xpert. Paired it up with the Blind Side XL Full choke and added 10-15 yards of easy effective dead drop range. Bottom line is if you want to flock shoot birds at 75 yards go buy a fishing pole, if you want to stone cold kill everyone you call in and get to finish get the good stuff.

Best duck load EVER
This is hands down the best duck load I have ever seen. A few seasons ago I picked up all of the major brands premium loadings to try in my new shotgun. I tried Remington Hypersonic, Blackcloud, Kent, and these. All were 3 1/2 #2s. None of the other loadings even came close to these. These drop ducks like you're hitting them with a sledge hammer. I dropped one from 72 yds last year with the help of my Remington Versa max using a modified choke. Yes, we measured it out. 72 yds. One pellet hit the spine and down it came. This is worth the extra few bucks. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Best i've used yet
I would've never thought a cube shaped shot would've held as good a pattern as compared to other round shot... but I have been proved wrong. This is by far the best shell I've used to duck hunt with.
Like other people have mentioned, any shots up to 40 yards equals a dead duck with one shot... though I have taken several at 40+ yards as well. I can't say that i've had as good of results from using other equally priced shells such as Black Cloud, Kent and Remington.

Nothing special. Priced high. In a box of 25, had 2 no fires, and one shell with end cut off. Had to have happened at factory cause the shot wasn't in bottom of box. Haven't even made it through whole box yet either. So approximately a 20% fail rate. Emailed Winchester with pictures, 5 months later, no response. Called yesterday, got passed around, and eventually given another number to call. Number isn't for anything to do with Winchester at all.
Poor quality, poor company. Am personally done using Winchester at all.
