Not many birds. I shot a box of the Hypersonic shells opening weekend and had issues with them. Wads kept getting ripped apart

There are a few local birds around,but it should start getting better in a few weeks when them migrators start showing up,then she will get interesting. :thumbsup:

Kinda interesting on the wods. My buddies swore by remington as I hav always shot winchester. A long story short I just started waterfowling on the 6th and as ducks were pouring in, my buddy chris had multiple issues with his rounds getting tapped but not igniting. Thought it was his gun. Then on thursday morning when we got that snow storm my other buddy, the third person in the wheel had the same issue. Pin was tapping but the rounds wouldnt fire. Though maybe it was due to cold temps and snow/water in his gun, come to find out it was the rounds. I went back to buying Winchester. I dont know anything about rounds, just know my dad bought winchester for me when I was growing up, so that's what I bought for day 1, I didnt have any issues over the last 8 days, and they have had issues wth about 6 remington rounds.
