What will the cost of black cloud ammo. I'm assuming it is denser than steel but was wondering what the overall advantage was.

It's 20.99 at cabelas for a box of12 ga. 3 inch. They say the advantage is it makes larger pellet holes. Has any one actually tried these yet? Are they worth spending 20 bucks for one box?

i've heard it patterns very well from a few people all shot out of different guns and were impressed as far as knock down power and damage to the bird, i guess well just have to wait till early goose season

My bro shot the stuff last year out in Idaho. Said it's the best darn stuff out there.

Just like the slogan: drops ducks like rain

My bro said that he actually saw blood coming out of the breast of the drake mallard before he hit the water.

If your shootin steel - this is the stuff you want.

I'm not sure if I'm sold yet. People buy it because it has a sweet box, and all this promotion. It is still steel, just 40% has a black coating with a little ring around it, with a special wad. It's still just steel, isn't it? Is all that worth 10 more dollars? crazy.gif

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
