Remington Sportsman steel

9 posts in this topic

What do you guys think of Remington Sportsman steel and it's performance ? It is the cheapest load around here and I just want to use it for teal and early ducks, but I don't want probs with it....patterning or otherwise.

I bought a case of it in 3 1/2inch. Every other Remington shell has worked great for me I'm sure this will be the same.

It's a pretty solid load. I have had no problem patterning the loads and they hit hard. Another one that I have been shooting alot of is the Federal Speed Shock. They aren't too badly priced either. Both loads work great for me.

I've seen factory remington steel loads that were best described as duds. The gun would fire with a muted sound and I could see the pellets pop out of the barrel. Havn't bought any since. Hope it was just a bad batch, but I'm not taking any more chances.

I am pretty sure most of it just depends on what kind of gun you are shooting and the choke that you have in it.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
