I've been using #3 blackclouds and been hitting them preddy hard, but I'm having the same experience as Sledneck. Compared to the fed prems I use to shoot. I've been putting out a longer lead. There are special chokes made for blackcloud ammo. I believe they had a longrange and a mid-range model. I would defiantly like to see how they perform

Can u believe how much tungsten, bismuth and such is now?

2 years ago I would buy boxes of the federal hardshot for like 18 bucks for 10 shells...now I see they are 35.00$.

I shoot BC through my regular Mod Rem Choke, it does pretty well.

I think that it is loaded with the "Flitestopper" pellets towards the back, so if you were a little behind the bird would get a full load of the pellets with the cutting edges, at least thats what seemed to happen to that teal this morning....

One complaint I have is that the BC shells are harder to eject and more prone to jamming in my 870 than Kent or Winchester shells, but I like to load up with #2 BC as my 3rd shot and use FastSteel for the first 2 so it isn't a huge deal.
