I just like those new Kent fasteel 2.0 more and more. I am killing some long range birds that I am doing some experiments with (longer range shooting), and I seem to crush them just like they are at 20 yds when out at 40-50 yds. Really nice round shot, and tight patterns (even in a SK1). I will post a disclaimer that I get them from Kent for free, some I can't say that I am not biased, but I did do a comparison using Kent, Federal blue box, Winchester Xpert, and Challenger (CDN). All killed similarly at 15, 20, 25 yds, but at 35+ yds, I did see a difference with the Kent. I am currently using the 3" #3 1500 fps 1 1/4 load. For geese I was using the 3" #2 1560 fps 1 1/8 load. No problems with any of the shells, and I like the black hulls, which don't stick up like a sore thumb in the field.
