Shoots good out of my Remington's, I prefer the #6's over the 5's myself, and to me they are a 30 yard load. jmo.

No way am I limiting myself to 30 yd loads with a 12 ga. Having said that, I have a beautiful turkey on the wall that I killed with a 3" Rem Nitro 1&5/8 load of 6s way back in the day before we had the options we have now. Killed him at 22 steps IIRC.

I just gave away a box of 5's I had had for years because they were the only option at the time but my gun hated them. I shot 6's. I only shoot out to 40 max and try to keep it to 30 and under and would even if I were using TSS By the way my gun did shoot the 6's rather well but just does not like 5's from any manufacture.

These are garbage. I would rather throw rocks then shoot rem nitrous. They pattern lousy and they kill even worse.
