    I used the Remington Hypersonic Steel 1700 fps shotshells yesterday on a goose hunt. They outperformed other steel loads by a great margin. I say Remington has discovered the 'Mother Lode''!!! Has any one else had experience in the field with this new shot gun shell?

    Kody---The burning question in my mind is, did you get any geese? Glad to hear the ammo performed up to your expectations.

      Pineywoods, I am heading to the garage shortly to prepare the birds. I did not limit out but I did knock down what I shot at and that has not been happening over the past few years. You need only hear that shot ripping thru the air to know something different is going on with these shotgun shells.

          Glad to hear that you have dinner taken care of and I hope that your success continues. Were these Canadians, snows, or what? (I'm not a goose hunter, but it sounds interesting with the calling, blinds and other stuff.)

            Eugene I have tried that Black cloud stuff and was not impressed at the ranges I described above. You are going to pay about a buck a shell. It comes in boxes of 25 rounds. The lead substitute stuff is far more than that and I refused to use them. At least we have some steel that will perform and perhaps perhaps see production runs that bring the costs down. Who know?
            Pineywoods, I have little time these days which means no prescouting for decoy shoots. Work gets in the way of being a full time hunter. Consequently, my truck load of field hunting gear sits idle and we just frequent areas around water that birds tend to be. We aren't as successful hunting in this manner but it gets us into the field and we usually get to shoot our guns and bring down a few birds. When shooting over decoys you usually manage to close the range but pass shooting means high flying birds. I shot a Greater Canada and a Lesser Canada on the Saturday hunt. The Lesser is about the size of a Snow Goose while the big boy is about twice as big. Their marking appear to be identical. It can be challenging estimating ranges on these birds for obvious reasons.
