Headed out by Nuclear plant saturday afternoon. Hopefully it is better than last week. I am gonna try using kent shells this week since last week the ducks looked at me as if I was dumb when I shot them and keep on going. Wishing everyone good luck.

Good luck! Try Winchester Supreme if the Kents let you down. I have been using them recently and am absolutely satisfied

I shoot Kent and love them, never had a bad one. I also watch people shoot everything under the sun with us and the Kents never get complained about. The Winchester Supreme are really good but not sure if they are worth the extra $. Just avoid Xperts and Rem Sportsman.

...which is half the battle, right?
I never saw one misfire either. I have two issues with them.
1) If you shoot cross or into the wind close your eyes because theres all kinds of stuff coming out.
2) We lay-out a lot and saw people have really sparse patterns on the water so I cut one open and the found the cause. The pellets have divots and there were even a couple snowmen in the mix. Cant see that helping the pattern.
All that said - go with what works for you and ignore me if you like them. The pellets just freaked me out and it also explains why they are cheaper - cheaper forging of the steel.

Winchester Supreme runs about 18 bucks a box where I buy them. That doesn't seem too high to me. They pattern very well with an improved cylinder and are sealed against moisture. I have also found them to have excellent range and consistent quality.

I have heard intermittent stories about Kent's mis-firing so I never tried them. There has been a lot of folks using that new black cloud shell. I might give those a try one day.
