    Falcon is all I shoot. It kills well and there is nothing in H&F for under $20 a box.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    As mentioned, yes. They had a hull change a while ago now and it is a heap better. Good shotty ammo at a good price.

    I've tried Falcon just don't like it I have no confidence in whatsoever. You must feel comfortable with what shot / choke combination you are using as your shooting can go to pieces once you've missed a few easy ones

    The even bigger bugger, is I bought a slab last month and paid $160ish. Another one coming up in 4 shot.
    I'll give them a wind up when I go in, see if I can't wangle a deal
    A slab of 3" for the price of 2-3/4 should keep a customer happy
