are these shotshells worth? what would be an ideal range for this load?
I bought them for about $9.2 a box of 25 here in old México mainly for geese and ducks. but high quality seldom is cheap!
what kind of chokes?
any comments are welcome!

thanks and keep blasting!

Try a Modified or IC choke, Pepe, and use them on ducks. They're a touch light for geese.

I thought that Mexico still allowed lead shot for waterfowl. :confused:
If so, I wouldn't even consider steel.

Anyway, #4 steel is OK for decoying ducks out to about 35 yards. After that, velocity drops markedly. I agree with Dave that it is too light for geese.

The price is about right and they are all I use for ducks. Never hunted geese so I couldn't help there

I bought these shotshells because of price, and availability. I still preffer lead over steel but never ever tried steel before.

are these nitrosteel a rough match to any high velocity shell loades with lead no. 2´s?

or are they a close match to 2 3/4 magnum copperplated lead shot in no. 2´s?

any of these other shells a better deal?
