For those who shoot 12 gauge steel shot, this is a great all-purpose round with a speedy velocity. The #7 shot in steel is slightly bigger than the standard #7.5 or #8 or #9 that would normally be present in a similar lead-based round. The speedy steel shot is almost a 1 to 1 replacement for lead shells, with the velocity increase, the payload increase and the shot size increase. The payload is 1 1/8 ounce and the load is perfect for most sport shooting needs including clays; and will serve nicely for some waterfowl work with short range needs. The better use of this load though, is upland and small game, including short range coyotes; rabbit and squirrel.
The Winchester brand name is a spectacular credibility booster, but more than that the production reliability and consistency is basically without equal. Very few other companies can produce volume and show quality control for their product portfolio, like Winchester shotshells can for the Winchester lines. For the money, this load is a great choice for a general purpose steel shot shell, and the users will benefit from the Winchester infrastructure.
This is a 1200 feet per second velocity 12 gauge load in a 2 ¾” low base shell.
