Winchester Blindside ammo

Postby Sagebrush » Sat Nov 03, 2012 10:03 am

Hunters are finding pellets wadded up with feathers and stuck just under the skin with this load
when shot at birds too far for its energy and penetration ability.

Lots of birds being wounded and fling off................( other topic page)

Round pellets are still "King of the Hill" !!

Just letting you know the facts...............

I've heard outside of 25-30 yards it cripples birds like no tomorrow. I'll never shoot it just from hearing that.

I bought a box when they first came out. I use a lot of #6 over decoys, so I put a 6 in one barrel and a blind side #2 in the other. One barrel was an improved and the other a modified. Switched them out as which one I shot first. Inside 20 yrs. the blind side did OK, but the 6's did a lot better at any yardage. I ended up using the last of the box to shoot a pigeons, at an old mine site here by the house. I gave half the box to a friend to shoot and he didn't have much luck with them, so it wasn't my gun not liking them.I won't buy them again.

I've only shot a few boxes of it, but 3" #2's has been a good load for me. I haven't had a problem killing ducks. Most of my shots are 30-40 yards. Anyone pattern it?
