From what he could tell compared to other steel and other federal loads, he was impressed. His conclusion was that the wad was likely the difference maker. It keeps its form and pulls away from the shot rather than peeling back. The shape of the shot had little impact, if any it was negative. The more round a shot pellet is, the better from a ballistic view point.
Is it worth the money? He decided no. He shot the black clouds one day and I shot cheap winchesters. His response, "Winchesters kill them just as dead."
I absolutely agree about the wad in BC. I shoot BC mainly because it patterns extremely well out of my Beretta. I do notice that I have some random pellet movement at longer ranges and although I have no proof of it, I think it might be those flight stopper pellets. I really wish that I could get a BC shell with just premium steel in it.
I do agree though about is it worth the money, no. If you pattern Kents and they pattern wonderfully for you and they are cheaper, I see no read to go to BC just because of the wad or the flight stopper pellets.
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid.
