Best 12 gauge ammo for pheasants
For Wild NoDak birds, 3" plated #5 lead w/ a Mod or even a full choke.
Browning BPS Stalker and an AWS!
I like Winchester Supreme and have used Fiocchi Golden Pheseant. But I'll also use Rem or Federal. A friend gave me a box of Estate brand shells he swears by that I have yet to try.
BadgerRedd...I shoot Winchester Super X 2 3/4" steel #6 on my pheasants. More BB's than #6 lead because of a different shot cup shape. And use IC when you'd normally use a Mod choke. Steel holds tighter further out. Yesterday I had 7 roosters come up within 20 feet of me....in the middle of a woodlot that was surrounded by public hunting land. Almost felt like it took forever to give the birds time to get out to a distance where I could shoot. I missed the first one, but the next two went home with me.
