That's going to get expensive.
At ~$1.50/round and a six bird limit with say, 12 rounds per hunt and if I hunted each of the 74 day season, equates out to ~$1330.00 outlay for ammunition. Who actually hunts each and every day of the season? If I hunted every third day, the cost outlay for ammunition would be ~$433.00. While steel is far cheaper but also far and away inferior to HTL alternatives, if the shots are found to be <25 yards, said ammunition costs would be dramatically less.
The birds deserve my (our) best effort.
If cost alone were the driving force, mud and sticks would comprise the decoy spread, camo would be mud face paint and skillet shots would be orders of the day.
Relax. It was a joke.
I know young man, just wanted to reiterate that HTL loads are well within the parameters of normalcy in the realm of waterfowl hunting.
You reloaders have your heinie hairs wound a little tight. You don't have to write a book responding to a joke to justify overkill using a 70 yard load on birds that decoy to 20 yards and land.
I'm good with the last 2.
Review my original post and you'll see HTL is only used for 70 yard shots or if conditions otherwise dictate such ordnance. Do you really want me to post up the pics of you shooting all those birds last season with your 12 gauge Beretta A300?
