Default Kent Faststeel

I plan on using this for geese this fall. Particularly 3.5 inch BB's. I think it's probably the fastest on the market 1625fps. Has anybody used Kent with good results?

Kent is great. I used it for years before I switched to Blackcloud. I prefer blackcloud but I will be shooting a 20 ga this year and Blackcloud doesn't make 20 gauge.

The high velocity Fasteel is primarily what I've used for the past five years or so in a 12 ga. I have a 3" gun, and use 2's for ducks, and BB's for geese. When I use a 20, which is rare, I like Kent Tungsten Matrix.

We all use it pretty much exclusively, good stuff. If I could get sponsored by Hevi-shot, that would be sweet!!!

Default Kent

I use only Kent Fasteel for ducks. I shoot the 12ga 3 1/2, 1 9/16oz #3s for all of my duckhunting. The factory SBEII modified choke can kill em as far as anything else out there with this load. I've been waterfowl hunting for 43 years now and had guys shoot every other type of ammo while hunting with me. At the end of the day they always ask, "What I'm shooting and where can they get some"?

I shoot 90% of my geese with Kent 3" 2 shot. They always seem to hit the ground like a brick.
