great shot to use with all waterfowl has the fs steel that stops birds like high density shells but cheaper than most premium steel loads

Everyone here seems to love BC. Initially I hated it because I found that it mangled my ducks (holes all the way through them). But then I determined it was because I was shooting it through a modified choke. Open up your choke (I've been using IC) if you are doing any shooting under 30 yards and it is extremely good. No cripples. I was talking to a guy the other day and he has been using a cylinder choke with great results.

I heard Patternmaster is coming out with a choke specifically for BC next year. So the best may still be to come.

I too tried some BC this past season and it did a great of killing cleanly every duck and goose that I shot and hit. I will be buying some more this fall or this spring if it is available for the spring hunt on Snows.
