I shot a lot of Hevi-Steel the past two seasons. I think its a good deal compared to some of the other high density shots.... hevi-duck is crap and a rip off.

If I'm shooting steel, I only shoot Winchester Supremes. Pattern great out of the old slide gun. Huge difference over cheap steel in my book.

I got real turned onto Federal Black Cloud this season when I started shooting it through an IC choke. I still carry a box or two of my ole faithful DryLoks though.

Well for me and my tight budget...It's usually what ever is the cheapest. But it's all good, it still kills them like the rest!
