Anybody have any experience with these? I bought a box today in 12ga. 2 3/4" 1 1/4oz. of #6 shot. They are designed for pheasants and are advertised at 1500 FPS. That is REALLY fast IMO! Any comments good or bad? Thanks.

I use them in 12 ga, forget what load. Got turned onto them by a buddy that uses them in 20 ga. They are a wicked load, can pull of shots that you didnt think were possible. I only use them on hare up in Maine. If I was a bird hunter, I wouldnt hesitate to use them on grouse or pheasant.
I used them the last two years in a row hare hunting in the Adirondacks I shot a few crossing roads and a railroad bed that pro gal wouldn't have been possible with a regular load. The are however a little over kill for close in shots. I shot one hare looking right at me at about 15 yards that didn't have a solid bone left in it.
I nearly bought a box today. But I read they dirty the [censored] out of a barrel and aren't anymore impressive than the Remington's. I may still purchase a box when I head to Kansas this fall. The jury is still out.
