Still hunting with the Win XX, Super-X, and HV shells.

162 in a 10 @ 40. Rem 870/ Ventilator .655. Win XX 3/2/6’s

125 in a 10 @ 40 Rem 870SM/ Rem SF .665. Win HV 3/ 1 3/4/ 5’s

140’s in a 10 @ 40 Rem 870/ Kicks .655. Win XX 3/2/6’s (21”bbl)

*The old red shells with the exception of the HV 5’s.


Barrel length on the HV 1 3/4 oz 5s?

28”bbl with the choke. Most of the patterns were 100-115. Shot some down in the upper 80’s as well.

Polishing and deep cleaning on the regular have increased my lead patterns.
