Just went out for a couple of hours.

I wouldn’t have big shooting experience but was very happy with the output. About 8 or 9 more pigeons fell into the next field.

I didn’t use the magnet as the crop was very low. Changed the gun recently and find it much more accurate than the last one, it might be the choke that I’m using.
The face veil and gloves are a help too I think.

I’ve been out a couple of times since but not as successful.
Have a magnet now which can help.
The half choke in the gun seems to be giving great range, knocked a couple at distance the other day that surprised me.

Good stooping power in them. I've never used them must see if I can get a box
Yes, I think the 32gram is good for making sure they go down.
A friend told me the other day that Remington were gone into liquidation (again) but who knows.
I’ve used cheaper cartridges and found them fine for most jobs.
