Guys, Looking at getting a case of shells here in a week or so, but can't necessarily make up my mind. I am typically a Kent shooter since they are probably the best bang for the buck and I have never had problems with them. I have shot multiple cases of them both 3" & 2 3/4" #4's with no problems. Pellets are round too. Last year I went on a limb since I didn't have much cash to throw towards a case for season and bought the Fiocci steel loads. Problem was that the brass would expand enough that they would jam in my chamber. Shot them in a buddies gun and no problems. I put a caliper on them and the tolerance on my chamber and the spent shell was too close for movement. Needless to say I sold those and went with a case of the Federal Blue (Speed Shok) loads. They seemed to do just fine and I had no problems with them. Some guys say they are dirty, but I clean my gun after each hunt so that isn't an issue. Now I saw that Cabela's has the Rio Blue Steel cases on sale for a darn good deal. Are the pellets round or look like little meteors similar to an Expert shell? I am a firm believer that aftermarket chokes can make a cheap load shoot really well vs. shooting high dollar ($3-4.50 per shell) loads. We are selective on our shots so we don't have long shots to worry about. Most are within 30 yards and I have shot 2 3/4" #4 at geese with no problems early season to late February in the snow. Any review on the Rio's would be nice. If I am still unsure I will likely just get the Kent's.
