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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
