Anyone ever open a 3 1/2 #2 Federal.

Postby duckaholic41 » Sat May 06, 2006 3:15 pm

I checked Out a few shells and I was quite surprised at what I found. Federals where mishaped ,dirty,diferrent sizes and lots of holes. Remington Where rite except for the extra plasti pellets the put inside to make up the wieght .Faststeel (kent ) seemd the best. Winchester. ,well we know about the experts ,But the surpremes seemd fine. My sugestions r If ur in the outdoors just apreciate that. Cuz u could be in france!

are these the el' cheapo federal loads?... the way i see it, they have to cut corners somewhere to drop the price for us poor folk... however i am really liking the kents, but in a pinch i'll take what i can get... plus if the shot is jagged and misshaped it should make a larger wound... right? :getdown:
