Look at it my way.... If he guy can shoot in the first place he sure as hell doesn't need a cloud of small pellets to shoot a bird in the decoys ( You have to remember that nobody on duck hunters chat except me shoots over 35 yards) and since we all know that steel 2's are 100% effective to 40 yards the point of fast small pellets is just silliness!
It's like talking about weather or not you like the tooth fairy better then Bigfoot. Absolutely **** pointless. Jeff
i shoot past 35 yards all the time at snows/honkers/ducks ect.....snows on purpose for testing and some honkers that others have shot at and they are going by at long range and dump one out just to show the other hunters that they need to practice shooting clays at long range..so they can hit them at close range and not just scare the heck out of them...and probably cripple alot of them is a better statment. plus i shoot alot of cripple geese/ducks at long range when we have guest hunting with us that tend to get alot of cripples because of lack of shooting skills..
