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.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
