Just curious---do many of you really like Black Cloud?? It doesn't make any sense and when I patterned it on paper it looked awful. The wad stays with the non aerodynamic shot for a very extended distance. I think it is one market ploy among many out there now.

Noticeable difference as far as reducing cripples, but if you shoot them up top it doesn't matter either way

No I've never seen a Martens but sounds like it is a good place!!

I understand that the irregular pellets cut a rougher wound causing more trauma reducing cripples when the shot connects-----but try shooting paper with them at different yardages. The pattern master shot cup does not open at all---find it after you shoot and it will be 15-20- yards out, unopened, which means the pattern did not start to open until it is somewhere in that range. Check the paper there and it should look like you shot a slug, mine did. The pellets being irregular in shape means it is not aerodynamic and become "flyers" leaving an uneven downstream pattern---less pellets coming in contact with the bird. Even though the Black Cloud cuts a more traumatic wound cavity there are fewer pellets doing the work---check your paper at 40-45-50 yards and see it it is getting dramatically more open at those ranges. I competed in Sporting Clays for a few years and spent money on the interior of my gun barrel to prevent flat spots in the shot so I could deliver more pellets down range to the target causing more---Black Cloud proved this on paper to me---just hate to see folks get caught up in a marketing ploy. Remember Phil Roberson gets paid to advertise them!!!!

The regular steel Federal shot works well for me, I shoot it exclusively.
