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

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
