Winchester BlindSide



Serious question: does anybody have anything good to say about these shells?

Bought 2 boxes of 3 1/2" #2s 1 5/8 ounces. I want to like them but they pattern like shite. 25 dollars a box should be better than this.

I shot some last year and didn't notice any difference in my $12 Fiocchi's. If you can shoot you can shoot.

My friend was shooting blindsides and we didn't notice too much of a difference during the hunt but we did find several of the square pellets in ducks while cleaning them so they must've been doing their job.

Too expensive. Same reason I don't shoot black clouds or heavy metal. They don't work much better then my Kent's so I can't justify spending $1 per shell.

I get 'em for $24 a box but i shot less because of fewer cripples and more one shot kills. Longer killing range too. About everyone I hunt with is shooting Blackclouds now.

Truth.

I know a guy who smashes ducks with a youth 870 20ga and cheap shells.

He used to be a competition shooter. Doesn't shoot a 12 because he doesn't need one

Me too. It gives you infinite bragging rights.

He does occasionally use a 12.
