Breaking news- Hevi-Shot developments

The good news is, a new option emerges for those of us shooting older fixed choke guns. Hurray!!

The bad news is, it seems Hevi Shot has been watering down the "Hevi" part of their offering...see this "Hevi Shot sucks" discussion.

Thought ya'll'd like to know.

Back to your regularly scheduled grousing.

I'm glad to have more options, although it came a little late. I looked all over for something for my son to use in his Remington Model 11 early in the season. Ultimately, we ended up buying a new Remington 870 youth model, so that he could shoot steel shot.

We simply couldn't find any 20 gauge shells for the old shotgun that were available.

I'd like to be able to use my old BSS again.

Of course, I'd like it to be affordable too.

yeah, that affordable thing is tricky. As much as I love shooting my old LC Smiths at waterfowl, I am thinking of buying one of the new Remington "Spartan" sxs to gobble steel, and use the LC only occasionally.

When steel came in, I bought a Browning Citori. I'd been shooting a BSS for years before that.

For some reason, I've never warmed up to that Citori. I don't know why, I just haven't. I've been thinking of buying a CZ side by side for that reason. It'd be nice, however, to be able to use the old BSS again.

I should note that, just before steel came in, I also bought a 10 gauge BPS. It's taken me years to learn how to shoot it, but I do like that. I only use it for geese, however.
