I want to stay with 16ga, I grew up with this guage and plan on buying a new sotgun in this guage, so when I was shopping for ammo I came across this from Federal. It had the highest fps for lead shot that I have found to date. I enjoy crow shooting and shoot as offten as I can. I shot three crows one right after another after buying this ammo. This Federal load does the job. I plan on buying more. I enjoy watching the crow feathers fly when I hit them with this ammo. - J. T.
