Just wondered how it patterned and how tight it was??
didn't get a chance to put it on paper but shot a couple boxes in Sodak this year - seemed to hold together well out to 45-50, didn't shoot it at anything further than that. It's a fast load as well and hit hard.
Just remember it's lead, so if your going to SD and your not hunting private land, you can't use it. All the walk in areas, and other public lands out there require non-tox.
Shot it in Montana last year. Seemed fine.
Been using it in SD for the last 4 years. Works great for late season birds. 3" #5's!!!
Lead is permitted on lots of public land in SD. All Federal lands allow lead shot, as do school lands, and WIA's. The only places non tox is required is when hunting State Game Production Areas and Waterfowl Production Areas.
Eventually, it seems that lead will go by the wayside.....I use Hevishot Pheasant
and have loved it
I used it the last couple years here in SE Alberta for pheasant. Worked well out to 40 yards or so. Had no cripples, if I did my part and hit the bird, down it went. Sharptails don't like it either.
Its ok... I like the Win SuperPheasant loads much better in the 20..I only wish they would make more options. 7.5's would be nice. 28's.... I could go on..
I really have had great results with the 3 inch 5s in 20 gauge for pheasants. Maybe its the gun or choke that makes for differences of opinion. My 20 pheasant gun is a 20 ga, older citori with top quality screw-in extended tubes (IC and MOD)
