Tired of putting patterns around birds and watching them keep flying... I want to try out a variety of shells on a pattern board with different choke tubes. Anyway I can't see buying whole boxes of shells to just shoot a couple out of and decide I don't want to shoot those shells anyway. I have a 2 3/4 inch gun so I don't buy the more expensive shells that only come in 3"+. As far as field trials go Remington has been my favorite as far as killing ducks go, but I want to shoot a variety at a pattern board to really pick my favorite shell and tube. If nothing else you hit more ducks with better confidence.
Anyway, is there anyone wanting to do the same thing? I want to test out the Winchester Xperts, Kent Fasteel and the Remington steel shot as well. I was thinking maybe each buying a box or two, then trading shells so we have a few of each to try out. That way were not left over with shells we don't trust, and it should be much more inexpensive.
Let me know if your interested!
