Been hunting snows for a few years with good success. We have found thus far that we really like the Kent fast steel in #1 shot size. Anyone else have a load they like/reccomended? We shoot both 3 and 3 1/2 with mag extensions

Y'all laugh all ya want, but I've been shooting 3" Winchester SuperX's this year and they've been working great. Always used Kents in the past but due to work being so slow I've been on a real tight budget & figured I'd give em a try. For snows, I shoot nothing but #2s. Good luck!

I would never laugh at a guy for being practical, especially when it comes to the pocket book. I normally shoot Remington sport loads from Walmart. They just didn't have the goose loads I needed for my Squaw Creek Snow goose trip. So I bought 2 cases of Fiochi from Rogers Sporting goods.
