I have shot nearly every shotgun shell, brand and size at them damn waterfowls. The tungsten is amazing but you need a second morgage to buy the things. Heavy steel is good, Kent faststeel is priced good and along the lines of Winchester Xpert awesome for good close decoy shots. I bought a case of Blackcloud this season because the dude on the box is bad ass and I felt like jumping in with both feet. Even with an old ass gun they kill the shit out of waterfowl and for 20-24 bucks a box well worth it. I shot less shells by a third at least and better kills mostly. With some of those cheaper/affordable shot shells I/We would have to make a few water shots to kill good and give the dogs a better retrieve. It is really a conservation tool as well as economical. My only concern is what will these goofy shaped shot do to a barrel in a few years? Has anyone tried the stacked shot by Winchester, Blindside?
