I think I was the only one shooting 10s at ducks last year, and only did it one day, pass shooting wood ducks. The results were impressive. I also had good results on crows. And lots of guys killed turkeys with 10s this spring, including incredible reports of long range kills with them. But there are enough guys planning to shoot them at ducks this year to get a clearer idea of how they are going to do.

That is a very impressive result for that size shot.

It'll be interesting to see how they do this year.

There are also a handful of guys going with #11s for upland game this year....

Man, when I think of how much depleted uranium I used to shoot in the A-10 and F-16, at 19.1 g/cc density, and think about the cost of tungsten, it really makes me cringe!
We used to blow through that stuff, 300 rounds on a sortie is 250 lbs of that stuff LOL. Now I'm paying for tungsten myself and am worried about 50grains here and there heh. Course all the bullets were just dug up and recycled, easy to do at 0.85 lbs a piece. If I wasn't worried about poisoning of some kind, I'd be driving out to the range and digging that stuff up myself from behind the targets!
