Got to love when you find 3-1/2” 12ga #6’s (10 ct per box) for only $5.00 a box. So took all 9 boxes they had!!! $47.70 total. The shell gods have blessed me the last week!!!

    That round doesn't even make sense when you think about it. Weird. I mean, it's a good buy but I can't think where I would ever use it. Probably a great Coot water rake load.

    Sky busters dream load. Can actually kill ducks at 100 yards and have a pattern if shot through a turkey choke.

    I was thinking the same thing. I hand load 1 oz Hw13 #6 for my 28. It will kill ducks to 45 yards. After that you run out of pattern density with the 1 oz load, shortly after that the 6's run out of penetration.....for that price, I would scavenge the shot and create 180 7/8 oz loads.

    But but but bigger and badder is better right???
    I'd love to have some of those in 2 3/4's or maybe even 3" but 3 1/2 is a bit much.

    Seriously??? Most guys can't kill a duck and u guys are worried about overkill?

    I load my own 2 3/4" and 3", but if I am buying factory I go 3.5". Never seen one too dead. Well I have, but only a couple, and they were so close any load would've destroyed them.

    Very very good buy by the way. I would've also cleaned house if I had seen them. Did it in a shop in NC a few years ago.
