It's a teal killer
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

Patterned my beretta a400 xtreme (optifade camo, 26') for the first time. For starters i am new to the forums on duckhunting chat and gon. I've been asking losts of questions, and have gotten some great info. Thanks to those whom provided me some intel. My reason for this was to maximize shot/kill ratio, to see if i needed new chokes sht ect. I am a soldier in the army so i do not have a lot of disposable income. That shot/kill ratio was to help save money in the long run.

Last season i got this gun and it never let me down. Took quite a few woodies and two toms. Never really considered a huge difference in shot pattern ( it's a damn shot gun not a precision long rifle), just difference in shot sizes. Wow was i wrong.

These were shot at the fort benning gun club at 40 yds with the A400s stock modified choke on 30 in circles. I fired each shotshell type twice and used the avg hits to the avg pellet counts provided by the makers of each ammo. The pattern paper was christmas wrapping paper. Wrapping paper sucks if there is any wind. Use something thicker.

Black cloud fs steel #2 shot, 138 pellets avg
Avg hits: 103, for 76% on target


Winchester blind side #3 shot, 210 hex pellets avg
Avg hits: 93, for 44% on target

Rio blue box #2 shot, 100 pellets avg
Avg hits 63, for 63% on target

Black cloud fs steel #4 shot, 202 pellets avg
Avg hits: 105, for 51% on target
