20 bucks a box here. Its the cheapest ammo in the stores around here. Anyone tried it out of a patternmaster? I heard it doesn't shoot well out of aftermarket tubes.
Patternmaster tubes are stripper choke tubes

Read my post on the combo Black Cloud , stripper choke

Long story , short
The combo don't work
A stripper tube trys to stop the wad
Black cloud has a wadd that opens from the rear ,slowing it down and allowing the shot to exit the front of the wadd

We tryed it for grinns even after we talked to Federal
We got poor to lousy patterns , 50 -60 % at 40 yds

But when we used a IC or LM Briley extended tube
We were getting 78 - 85%patterns at 40 yards
Mod produced almost exactly the same % as the LM
