Kent Fasteel?

Postby novice870 » Tue Aug 08, 2006 9:28 am

Does anyone have any feed back on Kent Fasteel for waterfowl? Also do you know how many boxes come in a case? I am trying to decide on a load for this season....thanks for your feed back.

The season is almost here!

They pattern the best out of my gun. I think they are great. I think 10 boxes in a case, 25 shells per box. I shoot 2 3/4 inch 2's and BB's
call 'em in and kill 'em all

They are a GREAT shell! I've killed a lot of ducks with the 12ga., 3", 1 1/8oz. load with #2 steel shot...FAST LOAD!

Small gripe...the brass on the shell rusts very easily; if left wet in a coat pocket. However, I was hunting tidal, saltwater marshes.

I have shot a good amount of Fasteel 3" and 4" in BB, 1.2.and 3 shot. It seems to knock birds down and pattern well out of both my Rem pump and my SBE.

The fast steel works very well in my benelli, but I have had cycle problems using it in my Rem 1187 and Rem 1100.

Hevi-Shot...is your benelli a semi-auto or pump? I shoot a pump (870).

Thanks for your feed back everyone...helpful info. I appreciate it!

In my eyes Kent's are the best shell you can get in there price range. Last year I shot almost every type of shell out there (hunted 83 days) and Kent's were my favorites. This year I will be shooting 3.5" 13/8OZ #2.

1 1/4 is plenty.

My Benelli is a semi auto. It'll pretty much shoot any type of shell I've tried.

I just love shooting these kents. In the late season (when the birds are leery and won't commit), I use 3 1/2" size 2. My mossberg likes them alright, but my shoulder does not.
