Kent Fasteel Waterfowl

Many waterfowlers who want value and performance from their shotshells choose Kent Fasteel Waterfowl. As the name implies, this ammo is fast, with 3 1/2-inch loads pushing the envelope at 1,625 feet per second. Cut one open and you'll find uniform, perfectly round steel pellets that provide good patterning performance. They cleanly kill ducks and geese and are affordable—what more could you want?

But sometimes a high-speed load isn't necessary. This year, Kent introduced TealSteel, a 1 1/4-ounce load of steel 5s that travel at a modest 1,350 feet per second. With a payload of just over 300 pellets, TealSteel has enough shot to ensure multiple hits on small ducks. The lower velocity is adequate to bag teal and it decreases recoil to the point that you won't feel beaten up after hunting in a T-shirt. kentgamebore.com
