What type of shells are you using this year?

Postby yellodog1 » Wed Sep 06, 2006 6:14 pm

Im going with Steel shot again this year. I shoot 3" and 3 1/2" so the steel does fine by me, especially for the price. Its not worth it to me to spend $2-$3.00 a shot for the other stuff.

What is everyone else using?

Hevi-shot only. When I look at how much I spend on gear, guns and everything else, I don't mind spending extra on good shells. However, $3 a shell for hevi is a bit much.
