Kents all the time. It is worth the extra money. i am going to try some hevi shot this year see how it does. I am also going to buy a case of kents if i have any left over i can use them for snowgeese.

I think it depends alot on the gun youve got, I tried shooting Xperts but my Xtrema isnt a big fan of cycling them fast enough. I used Kent last weekend snow goose hunting and pounded em. Federal Heavy High Velocity are awesome if you can stand them punding the piss out of your shoulder.

i was thinking about buying a case of kents, i have not had any problems with them and i love them. my buddy shot up a few boxes of them and had a few problems with them misfiring. another guy tried shooting the ones that didn't go off and they didn't fire. i was wondering if maybe he just got a bad box, maybe they got wet, or if other people have had problems with them. i just wanted to see what you guys thought before i spent the money. thanks
