New to duck hunting, have been deer hunting all my life. Tried duck hunting last year and really enjoyed it. Got a whole lot to learn and willing to listen to everybody’s opion.

Hi: would like to tell you the experience I had with Kent Steel shot 12 gauge 3/1/2 1 3/8 oz. shot size 3 it was a nice day for Hunting no strong wind nice and calm, lots of ducks feeding. My Retriever and I were in our blind. When the ducks landed twenty feet away. I took aim at one single duck and they were so close together in a group that you could not get a feather between them. Will I had the perfect shot to get my daily limit but to my surprise when i took the shot I saw a cloud of feathers but not one dead duck. To say the least I was a little tick off, even my dog looked at me to say what the hell. I figured just a bad shell. But to my dismay later that day I jumped shot at a group of ducks around 25 yards or so, another group of feathers but no ducks. So I grabbed a box of Remington shells and went to the woods to shoot some clays with the same choke. I broke 23 clays out of 25 so I guess that Benelli was doing it’s job and I was pretty good to. I will let you decide what was wrong. Just know that Remington will be in my gear bag from now on.

Steel is steel, right? When I have a choice I shoot 3″ #4 fasteel. Haven’t had any problems in the three years that I’ve been shooting them almost exclusively.

i have never used kent shells. i just got a box of winchester blind sides and have heard mixed thoughts about them. What do you guys think about blind side shells

I’ve hunted a club in suisun for the past 18 years, probably been shooting kent for the last 12 years. I can afford to by it by the case in 3 in. #3 1560 fps. High flying sprig, kamikaze teal and burly mallards have all met their maker with the faststeel. Never a misfire and they pattern great out of my franchi. I like using the same ammo becAuse my leads are consistent. My average is usually around 85-100 birds per case so 2.5 shots per duck. I endorse kent to everyone who asks. Best bang for your buck IMHO.
