I had this thought well filling up the bandoleer of shotgun shells I keep with my Stoeger Coachgun today. There is the constant debate with pistol ammo about what brand is better (HSTs vs. Silvertips vs. Rangers vs. Pow'rballs vs. ect...) and will do the "best" job. I am not sure that I have ever seen such a debate about brands of shotgun ammo (the slugs vs. 00BK vs. 4BK debate is not what I want here, there are enough of those). But is there any brand of shotgun ammo that is supposed to be superior to HD?
I keep my scattergun and bandoleer loaded with most just Remington green box 00, with a few of the Brennke "K.O." one ounce slugs going the other way so I don't grab them by accident. I have those two brands because I have tested them in my weapons, and they are cheap (not the best reason, but they shoot, and I wouldn't want to catch a load of them in the chest). For a box of 5 for either they can be found for 2-3 bucks at Bass Pro Shops or similar places.
So, is there really any difference in brands of HD shotgun ammo, or is there something better I am just not aware of?
