    The browning steel shot looks like it's loaded by Federal?
    Anyone try it.

    I believe it's actually loaded by Winchester. I've not personally used it, but posted patterning results look like it patterns tight, and seems to be of high quality. When I burn through some of the pile of ammo that I already have, I plan to pick up a case to try.

    Made by Winchester, supposed to be nice round shot in Blind Side type wads. Try it but don't be surprise if it doesn't perform any better than regular steel loads.

    Maybe this Browning Steel Shot with the Square shot wad , being round , might be the Cats Meow ?
    Almost as good as a Plain Old round steel shot load ? :l:l:yes
    And , just think , it only took a pretty package to draw some interest ! :clap

    Either way it's on sale for $109/case after rebate. That's cheaper than red box federal.

    Last I checked they were pretty proud of their ammo manufactured by Winchester by the price they wanted for at best Winchester Supreme ammo.

    They say it's made for long range. Hence the wad design. Who knows. However, at that price it's hard not to give it a try.
