Ive read this post and reread it,and I finally decided to comment. First of all I want to express the fact that I mean no disrespect to anyone on their respective views and or ideas. I have shot about every brand and several different reloads; in my opinion, winchester xperts and superx work just as well as anything else out there . In fact , my primary shotgun seems to prefer them over remington, kent faststeel, federal ect. I have also cut them open and in SOME instances found some inconsistancy with pellet size, and shape, but I have found that to be true with the other companys as well. I guess winchester super X 3"#2 is my "go to duck load."
That being said, HEVI-shot #4 is my favorite load for light and dark geese, but that is a whole different story, and you cant compare apples to oranges.
You did a great job with this coot sandwich! Tastes almost as good as your sliced shoveler loaf!
