Pattern results from a 12-gauge 3" Remington 870 Special Purpose with a 28" barrel and factory flush Rem-chokes (pattern average of five, 30" post-shot scribed circle, yardage taped muzzle to target, in-shell pellet count average of five, and true choke constriction from bore gauge).

12 GA 3" REMINGTON HYPER-SONIC STEEL LOAD
1 1/8 oz #2 steel (141 pellets + 14 plastic beads) @ 1,700 fps
40 YARDS -- IC (.009" const.) / pattern 63 (45%)
40 YARDS -- Mod (.018" const.) / pattern 78 (55%)
40 YARDS -- Full (.037" const.) / pattern 100 (71%)

12 GA 2 3/4" REMINGTON SPORTSMAN HI-SPEED STEEL LOAD
1 1/8 oz #2 steel (139 pellets) @ 1,375 fps
40 YARDS -- IC (.009" const.) / pattern 85 (61%)
40 YARDS -- Mod (.018" const.) / pattern 116 (84%)
40 YARDS -- Full (.037" const.) / pattern 118 (85%)

Now you can be the judge, good luck.

Haha, they don't kick that bad. If 3.5"er's weren't 30$ a box I'd shoot them all season.

The ones I tested were 1 1/4oz 3 inchers out of a Beretta A390. I didn't think the recoil was all that bad in that gun, but I realized that the amount of force on the receiver from the bolt slamming back wasn't a good thing.

That said, I don't know that I'd be wanting to shoot a couple of boxes of them out of a pump gun at a snow goose hunt.

I feel slightly sorry for a man who has never patterned his gun, who has no idea how far his chosen load will retain killing penetration. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister

Yuchi -- Yes, I probably needed a conccusion exam after that session at the pattern board! As a matter of fact, I intended to pattern the #4 load too but just didn't feel like taking the punishment after shooting the #2s so I gave them to a buddy to shoot with his autoloader while hunting. Of course, anyone that has done much patterning knows that you really get a feel for the recoil when patterning!

Good luck.

Wich is exactly why I got away from 3.5" shells. I developed a flinch every season. Between the flinch and muzzle jump follow up shots are harder to get to

I heard a guy say something similar in relation to the impact he felt they had on his shotgun...he also said they
kicked bad....of course, he was a 6'4 275 offensive tackle years ago and is still a big man...so they must have
really kicked for him to say so

i will say they do give ya a punt out of my beretta 3901. mine are the 3 inch 1 1/8 ounce BB loads. but they do lambast geese out to 50 yards when centered.

I shot a box of 3" out a 870 last year. Will smoke a duck over the deks. But - anything that kicks that much should smoke a duck over the deks! I still remember my first 3 shot volley with them. I did kill a duck but, my first thing on my mind was just DAMN. I shot some super hot 1 3/4oz lead reloads back in the day that weren't that bad! I found the patterns tend to have some holes in it and have not used them again.

Best thing to do with hypers....let someone else shoot them, pick up the hulls and reload them. Rem hyper hulls are my favorite for that. 3",1 1/4oz, #1 at about 1400fps. :thumbsup:

Totally agree with you. I wish you could buy those hulls new somewhere.

I am going to pattern test a Hypersonic 3" #4 tomorrow, but the last time I shot one while hunting it did give me a headache! Unless they pattern incredible there is no way I would shoot them because of how hard they kick.

If you want to be a good shot in the future, don't shoot them. If you are a good shot now? You won't be for very long.

Have patterned them through Baikal, Berretta, Benelli and Browning - using terror, seminole, baikal and carlson chokes - factory as well... They didn't pattern any better than slower steel and on average worse.

Doubt many guys are tripling on tight fast birds with them. Too much recoil to put the slow is fast principle to work

Couldn't pay me to shoot them again. Crazy recoil and got better patterns with Experts.

That 3 inch hyper and 1 1/4 not bad at all my Benelli vinci. I shoot almost same speeds in homeloads in 3 1/2 hull. My friend nova give number 2 ahot and kicks x-full almost 90% in 40 yards that load. You guys are like girls if that 1 1/4 load is bad recoil load. :biggrin:

for me its not so much the recoil it is what those loads do to the action buffers and if you do not replace them the damage that gets done to the aluminum recievers(even 31/2 inch frames)(3 inch frames get beat up bad)...not wurth the high pressures that is way up in the 31/2 inch loads pressure range in the little 3inch hulls.

not wurth it after the semi auto that you was shooting has to have reciever ect replaced, i had a 835 that the recoil actually broke the raileing seem that the slide bars ride on on the top side were the shells get droped in the action(loading port)...just in one season of use...was not my shotgun but i sold the rem hypers to himand got the gun back towards the end of the season. ruined to say the least. could go on with alot of other examples of new guns trashed in just one hard season of shooting from fall to end of spring snow goose season. shooting only the hypers from remington in the 3 inch version.

I like the hypersonics ive been shooting them the last 3 yrs I use the 3.5" #2s and BB. ive had best results for patterning out of a briley full choke the pattern was about the same as shooting kent 1 1/4 3.5" out of the IM choke and Full I believe they had about 70-80 pellets in a pizza box so about a 15-16 inch circle. they seem to like the tighter choke for a good pattern my gun is a maxus and I haven't had any problems with the gun or the kick

Last year I used Remington Hypersonic, Black cloud, fast steel, and kent steel, and winchesters something death ( some square shot) while hunting mostly duck ( the occasional goose would get lost and fall to the ground). I was using no 2 shot or bb in all of the shotshells. I was using 3 inch only in a Benelli M1 Super 90 that I purchased back in 2000. I used my Im choke tube and here is what I came to the conclusion of. I killed more ducks with the Hypersonic bb's than anything else. If that duck was within 25 yards he was dead. I killed out to 45 yards and a few at 50. I noticed that I had to adjust my lead on the Hypersonic as the shot got to target faster. They did recoil more than the others, but the recoil to me was no worse than say Nitro mag no 6's that I use for squirrels or no 1 buck shot I use for deer. I shot a few of each at 30 yards on paper and I did not count the shot, but all of the shells covered up a spot that I thought a duck wouldn't fly through unscathed. I ran about a case of each through my gun ( Half no 2 half BB) and found no problems except the Winchester black death or whatever they were, seems I couldn't kill squat with those. As far as the recoil I am about 230 LBS and grew up shooting pump guns until 2000, so recoil may not affect me as much as others. I Intend to use the Hypersonic this year on the ducks unless I can't find any. In that case I'll go back to fast steel.
That's my honest review, sorry for not having all that mathematical mumbo jumbo, I' got a boat to rig and blinds to mend.
And hello to the board !

I have shot a box of 3" at ducks. No complaints but nothing exceptional.
I bought a box of 3.5" because there was no 3" available. I shot only 10 shells and won't shoot the other 15. To much recoil for me. I will give those to someone tougher or who knows better than me.
The gun cycled so fast and hard that it didn't pick up the second shot.

No thanks.

I have had the best success with 1300 - 1400 fps and large payloads, for both large ducks and geese. 1250 fps and 2.75 inch for teal and woodies.
