    New Loads for 2018?

    Anybody planning on using new loads this fall? I'm hoping to get my mitts on a box or two of the new Federal TSS waterfowl loads or some Apex Ammunition waterfowl loads. How bout you?

    Probably just gonna try and work through a couple of these cases of Remington hi velocity Nitro Steel... Might pick up a case of 2 3/4 steel shot to shoot out of my A5, hope the next purchase doesn't turn my gun into a single shot, it certainly won't be Black Cloud again.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    That's so strange... Scott struggled with the Black Cloud as well and I had no issues and loved how it crushed birds. Weird!

    I've shot ducks with the Black Cloud Snow Goose load for years, other than it being a dirty load, I loved how it patterned, and how it hammers ducks. These 2 3/4 loads hit ducks hard as well... You just only got one opportunity. lol

    I heard a rumor that Apex Ammunition may have sent about 100 waterfowl loads over for us to giveaway...
