I hear you Federal Ultra Shock is one of the best but I did a lot of pattern testing and found out that Remington Nitro Steel is Excellent even better than my Favorite Federal Ultra Shocks and Winchester Supremes pattern excellent to but I need to step up to a tighter choke to get the same pattern density, so when I run out of Feds I'm good to go! :yes:

You could always just make your own and not have to worry about who is not making what anymore.

I load and shoot primarily with TSS, otherwise it's just steel shot. Don't buy factory ammo of any kind even metallics except 22 Rim Fire. Lost

I have tried most and keep going back to winchesters. I will never let another Federal in my auto, the powder residue is like glue!

If I wasnt using my reloads, I would be shooting Kent 3" 1 1/4oz #1s or Kent 2 3/4" 1 1/8oz #2s.

I've noticed the complete opposite, this last weekend. i had to wash my barrel swab out inbetween. just so i could clean my 2nd barrel. Federals were never like that for me.

I shot Fed ultras in my Vinci last year and it wouldnt cycle after just a box because it was so gummed up. I went from cleaning twice a season to every night. I sold the last boxes of that case..

Sounds more like a cleaning/lubing issue. I've had snow goose hunts where i've shot 4 or more boxes of ultrashoks in a day and not needed much more than a shot of clp on the rails to keep my sx2 cycling. Or maybe its just another benelli issue! :grin:
