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

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
