Just curious. When you buy shells what brand do you prefer. Myself, I've had really good performance using anything put out by Federal. I've had some bad exsperiences using Remington and my second favorite would be Winchester.

Well PA and I do not use factory rounds as we handload all (centre fire wise).

This past season i tried both federal and winchester slugs for my hunt to ft.knox , by far the winchester slugs shot thru my 870 remington was great.I had just as well tossed my money away if i were to buy the federal slugs...Now on the other hand i've had federal rifle shells for my 30-30 that i have had for the last 5 yrs and they are still good out of the box.I have a small stockpile 5 boxs left of the federals that i bought off a friend and i probably won't need to buy shells for the next 2 yrs for that gun..

I have always enjoyed the FailSafe. Seems to shoot pretty darn good outta my rifles.

I agree Failsafe is a great round, I like the Federal premium stuff like their Accubond rounds..

For my .22s I shoot Federals.

For shotguns, I've found Winchesters to be pretty decent.

My 30-30 I shoot Remington Cor-Lokts.

My newest .270, I'll continue to shoot Federals through it.

As Eric already mentioned we use our own reloads for all our center fire loads. So our favorite would have to be P&E.

For shotgunning turkeys our preference goes to Winchester XX 3 inch # 6's at 1 7/8 oz of shot. Anything else shoots a high pattern.

HAS ANY BODY DONE A VERY SIMPLE TEST GET A BUNCH OF DIFFERANT MFGR. SHELLS FOR WHAT EVER GUN YOU HAVE AND SEE WHAT THE GUN LIKES BEST
OR WHAT IS MORE ACCURATE . I RELOAD MY OWN SHELLS SO I KNOW WHAT
SHOOTS THE BEST . A LITTLE FOOD FOR THAUGHT . HAVE YOU EVER SHOT A
FED. SHELL THEN LOOK DOWN THE BARREL TO SEE HOW DIRTY IT IS THEN SHOOT A REM. SHELL NICE AND CLEAN ONE THING I DO SEE MORE TIMES IS THAT THE CHAMBER IS SO DIRTY I DONT KNOW HOW THE GUN EVEN FIRES :huh: SO THE NEXT TIME YOU SHOOT WHAT EVER GUN CHECK OUT THE INSIDE NOT THE OUT SIDE YOU MITE BE SUPRISED :yes:
