hi i was at Galyans a while bak in KC and got some Winchester SuperX 20 gauge 6 shot for my shotgun. Earlier today i got some Winchester Upland Game Loads 6 shot for 5.50 for 50 at the closeout sale at a country general

the brass looks the same hight on these but are made out of a diferent material?-maybe coated?!??!

one looks more like copper while other has more of an aluminum finish

the crimp on these are also different- the SuperX has the 6 crimp and the Upland has 6 but also a wierd dimple sort of thing the top in the middle of the crimp-what is that?-will this affect how it shoots?

are these both the same things and differnet names or different qualties and types of lead?will they shoot different?-all chatting allowed :rolleyes: :p

i dont know hte different here!

JB:

In '88 and '89, I was in Wichita, KS and I did some serious Pheasant and Quail hunting. I found no appreciable difference between the Super X or Upland with normal lead shot.

What I have noticed for what it's worth is that in steel shot, the Winchester Xpert is garbage while the Drylock is great. Xpert steel shot is basically stamped out of steel wire rod and is out of round.
