Would you buy -- Winchester Extended Range Hi Density.

Here is the question - this load is no longer made (to my knowledge). Current pricing is listed.

If you were able to find this load:

a. what would you personally pay per 10 pack ?

b. Would you shy away from the 2.75" 1.5oz #5 or #6 as a late season duck/goose load?

I'll explain what I am driving at when I hear responses.

Thank you.

A. I probably would't pay much for it because I simply cant afford that expensive stuff. But I'd say $30 a box would be reasonable. Hevi is more than that.

B. The 1.5 5's would be a great goose load, 6's a great duck/goose load or long range duck load. I don't know the comparisons off hand, but I would imagine the 6's would be close to #1 steel and the 5's around #BB steel. I'm shying on the conservative side, its probably more than that.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

I just acquired 100 rounds from a small retailer out in the country. Told him I'd buy his entire stock, if it rang up appropriately...

13.99/box. I couldn't hand him my CC fast enough.

May sell a few boxes down the road. Mix of 5s and 6s.

Funny thing was that their pricing labels were @ $29.99/box. UPC gave a different story, though.

Different strokes.... Looks like you made a deal that you are more than happy with. I am glad for ya. I have shot the Hi Def stuff before. However, the 2 3/4 regular steel will do everything I need. I dont push my range past 50 yards, the reg steel is more than adequate as a lethal load. I am much happier paying $100 for a case of 250 reg steel than $140 for 100 Hi-D.

The back of the box indicates 10% heavier than lead, for what that is worth. I was at a Cabelas a few weeks ago, and they actually had a small quantity of the Wingmaster HD left. At clearance, it was still 3.00/round.

I guess the reason for my post (certainly not to brag), was to find out what 'fair market' rates would be for that load if I chose to sell a few boxes.

If you want some good long range goose loads or coyote loads check out this link for Win Xtended Range shells.
http://www.lg-outdoors.com/products.asp?cat=12560

These Win Xtended Range 3" loads are 1-3/8 oz of shot but they are $2.00 less per shell than most of the Hevi-Shot 3" 1-1/2 oz loads are going for.

This is what Win Xtended Range B shot looks like.

I still have three boxes of Remington Wingmaster HD. I shot two boxes of it several seasons ago and was not impressed. I had a higher kill/shell ratio with standard Remington Nitro Steel.

As to the original question; I'd think someone who wanted the HD stuff would be willing to pay $3/shell for it...seeing as how the load is no longer marketed.

August 2011 I walked into our local BPS and noticed some boxes of the Winchester ER in 2 3/4" hull, 1 1/2 oz. of #6's.

They had originally been $32.95/box (10) and marked down to $19.95/box and then, there they were on an end cap at $9.95/box.

I left with all 31 boxes.

In a 36" circle, these print 300X+ with both the (original) PM tube and Terror tube in .681 constriction.

They are absolutely deadly on anything with webbed feet and a heartbeat out to 60+ yards.

BTW, they are still in production...as turkey loads...same cartridge, different bird printed on the box.

Yes, these loads I acquired are 'Turkey' loads...

I thought the shot in the turkey loads was heavier than in the waterfowl loads?

I've shot hundreds of rounds of the 2 3/4" xtended hd 2's and B's...you can find those if you look hard for under $2 a round.

I personally draw the line at $2.00 bucks a pop and as to question B, the 5 and 6 shot is good to 60 yards on ducks and close to that on geese. If you are shooting past that distance then yeas I would shy away from them :wink:

You must have been having a bad day, with the HD. While the RNS was a good steel load, it is not in the same boat as the HD. No way, not even close. I still have about six boxes of HD because when they quit making it I bought all that I could find. I still have almost a case of Tungsten which for me is better than hevi shot, but you can't find it anymore either. I picked up anothe case of hevi shot today after srwearing off of it last year, but at $220 a case, I don't see anything that can beat it. If you find something better,please let us know.
Say when.
