Unlike the other review, I find these shells to be very effective. Used in my Westley Richards Damascus barreled SXS the pheasants drop like a sack of potatoes.
I purchased these to put through my old Stevens Ranger. I understand that they're lite loads but the fact that it can't even put down a pheasant after 2 shots (5 shot) or a squirrel after 3 (6 shot) is incredibly disappointing. I've used other lite loads that can still put down a pheasant with lower velocity than these. Definitely would not recommend
