Kent faststeel

Postby duckaholic_16p » Sun Nov 21, 2004 5:19 pm

Twice now i have had 3 1/2 BBB's not fire right outta my gun. The first time i jump shot some geese and the second shot i had to litterly dump the BBB's out the end of the barrel. Today for the 2nd time they cost me some geese. Had close to 75 birds less than 20 yrds and i could actually see the BBB's come out the barrel. THe wad was stuck in the barrel, could screwed up my face and gun if i shot again. Between a buddy and me we have ahot almost 2 cases of the # 2's and acouple boxes of the BBB's, just wondering if anyone else was having any problems..also if someone can give me the email addy to Kent i would appreciate it..i looked and cant find it.

:eek: Had a primer get cought in my bolt on a hunt. It just feel out of the shell after firing. But i still shoot them. Don't let them get wet. They will go bad fast. I'd gladly pay another dollar a box if they'd seal thier shells from moisture. They pattern very well in my gun. :thumbsup:

3 years ago I shot Kent. I had 2 shells that were short on powder or something. Sounded like my gun was shooting low brass 2 3/4" 8 shoot
Now I buy Winchester Supremes by the case.

I still rather shoot Kents than Winchester x-pert.

I love Kent fasteel. Patterns awesome in my gun, never really had any problems with them. One time one of the shells did misfire though, just pumped it out and the next one fired. But that has also happened to me with other brands too.

i have had some problems with kent shells and then i switched to winchester and have a dozen or so shells not fire. i would have to cycle the action and that pissed me off cause they were already behind me and i couldnt shoot.

Sounds like a good potential for some pettifogging lawyers to get some "kick" out of to me.

did the shell get wet? sometimes water gets past the wad and into the powder and it just messes everything up. so make sure you keep your shells dry and fresh. sometimes if the shell is old it will also misfire.

The shells were bought the last week of Aug. and the first one miss fired in september for early goose, fresh outta the box in a feild. So theres no way it got wet. Theres a slight possibilty that the second one got wet. The only reason i saw that is we were hunting over water. the shell was never dropped or rained on so i dont know.
