Clark Kent Fasteel

36 posts in this topic

Dont know much bout ol Clark Kent fasteel but have heard various reports from absolute dogsheet to wouldnt shoot nothin else. So my ? is whats every1's opinion of Kent ? I myself primarily stick to feds. ON a sidenote I was somewhat impressed wit BC but $$ will prob keep me from purchasin more .Thats were Kent comes into play as its inexpensive but Im not entirely sold on the product since I've never shot it. Any input is appreciated. Thnx

Pretty much all I shoot as well.... But on a side note I was checked by a C.O. on Pool 7 last year and he pretty much made fun of me for shooting Kent saying I mine as well be shooting blanks... I respectfully disagree with him confused

I use the kent steel for ducks and lead for roosters in S.D. no problems at all.

I shot FastLead this weekend at roosters and a buddy who also shot FastLead had a shell in the box that had about 4 or 5 BB's in it and hardly any powder at all. I put it in my gun and shot it and it made a real quiet "whump" and the wad got stuck in the barrel. Glad I was shooting the over under and could look down the barrel before i loaded it back up or I might have been in trouble. But besides that one shell, I have shot a lot of FastSteel and have been happy with it.

Kent Fasteel is my choice. I've shot hundreds of rounds and they are very consistant and never had a dud.

well it seems there ia alot of good to be said . With that being said IS there any downside to these shells? I'll prob. go ut in get a box or 2 n see what i think althogh I'm still skeptical as a few guys @ work have realy slammed Kent,much like that post where the co referred to em as "blanks"

I have not had a dud in the last five or so years, but like everything out their, nothing is perfect I have found that the light load 3.5" 3 shot is stellar get the 1.25oz not the 1-3/8oz the light load is faster

My Benelli hasn't seen a duck or goose load through it besides Kent since I bought it 3 years ago. I've been shooting it about 5 years now at about a case per year and don't plan on shooting anything else.

Anyone ever actually pattern it through their gun?

My BPS doesn't like loads with veolicties over 1500 fps. Very inconsistent patterns. I've put several Kent loads through it. Each gun has it's own preferences when I hear "it's great in the double, autoloader, in the slough, or for pheasants" I really wonder.

I just picked up some 3 1/2" #1's they state 1625 fps. WOW! Sounds good.

Anyone else try these rockets? I can't wait. By the way they were only $17 per box at Joe's on sale...

I shoot 3-4 cases of Fast Steel every fall. It's about the only loads I'll shoot at waterfowl. For the price I think it's the best out there. Federal makes great shells but with the price increases lately sheels get expensive very fast.

personally i dont like them. my brother gave me a box and i shot them threw a 3 inch weatherby and most shells would not eject, like when shot they where to long.

I patterned it through my M1-Super 90 and it was very uniform. I also tried Winchesters, which were terrible, and Federal, which was decent but not like Kent.

Support local business - shoot Federal shells. Made in Anoka, MN , USA.

Be ethical. Pattern your shotgun and shoot whatever gives you the most confidence in cleanly killing birds.

Agreed. Most people aren't gonna pattern their guns though. If you don't want to do the research, spend the extra couple bucks to support MN business.

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
