Remington Premier High Velocity Magnum
« on: April 14, 2019, 01:47:59 PM »
Anyone try them before?  Copper plated lead at $10 a box.  For a dollar a round, I figure I’ll give them a try, but was just curious if anyone else has.

Worse than the regular Remington nitro loads?

Sounds like a 30 yard load potentially.  I’ll shoot a few next Friday and see how they perform out of my 870 with a factory extra full turkey choke.

Sounds like a 35 yard load potentially. I see 10” numbers drop very quick from 35 to 40 yards. With federal grand slam #5 I get an average of 85 hits in the 10” at 35 yards with the numbers ranging from roughly 70 to 100 hits shot to shot. At 40, the average drops down to 50. If you’re wanting to try an economical lead shell, the fed grand slam might be what you try if the Remington’s don’t shoot well. Make sure you shoot at least 3 shots to get an idea of what the pattern looks like on average. I’d start at 30, and if it looks good, go back to 35, wouldn’t even try 40 with it unless for fun

Yes that’s at 40, my choke seems to not like 6’s unfortunately that .685 GT loves 5’s and 4’s the long beard 4’s patterned a lot better but low I’ll fix that this summer with a optic.
