Was wondering if anyone has messed with the stuff. Went on a tundra swan hunt any my hunting buddy was shooting 3 1/2 bb+ , you could hear the shot hitting them but they wouldn't bring them down. Now he's a pretty good shot so I know thats not the problem, We shot bb steel and it worked great, he ended getting his with a steel bb. is any one else having problems with the stuff, thanks for your help.

I haven't tried it but I'm wondering how you're able to hear the shot hitting them over the shotgun blast? People write that on the boards from time to time but I can not hear anything over the blast.

If the velosity is real slow or the distance way out there,
you have time to hear the impact of BB's or larger.
I have some BB's at 1365 fps that I can hear hit at 60 yards.

I tried it some time ago. Didn't care for it much. It ain't anything special and way too expensive. The 2 3/4" #4 1375fps steel kills ducks at 50yds straight up. So why pay the extra?

The couple times I used Dead Coyote for geese, I could hear it hit em inside 30 yrds. Dead Coyote is way too much shell for geese I found out. Sounded like a rag being torn. Sounded brutal,,,,,looked worse.

It all depends on how it patterns out of your gun.
I actually like the stuff....all the 'premium' steel is about the same price so I go between Winchester Supreme and the Federal Ultr Heavy High Shok.
