The 1,700-fps HyperSonic Steel from Remington is the world's fastest, hardest-hitting steel. The HyperSonic Steel shortens lead by up to 11% - an 8" lead difference at 40 yards that puts more pellets in the head and neck for quicker kills and fewer misses. The Xelerator Wad, the two stage system and hotter primer which ignites a small powder charge in the chamber, moves the entire payload forward slightly to control pressure.

I tried these after getting great patterns with 12 ga. Remington 3 1/2" Sportsman #2 shot. These didn't pattern as well but gave usable patterns that were better than the patterns I get with 3 1/2" BB ammo at 1550fps. The gun used is a Winchester Super x2 and best choke tried was Carlson Improved modified sporting clays extended. I tried all chokes but full as it was recomended against for Hypersonic ammo. All chokes put pellets on target even Improved cylinder. My patterning was with what I had some 24" wide by 30" boxes at 50 yards. I got 100 hits for 59%. My Remington Sportsman 12 ga. 3 1/2" BB at 1550 fps gave 65 hits for 65% at the same range and target. Both will penetrate a goose to 65 or a little more yards so the Hypersonic had less holes in the pattern and was also more forgiving as the hypersonics throw a wide swath compared to slower speed loads so if I'm off a little on my lead I still have a chance. The BB load stayed together tighter. The Hypersonic #2s put more pellets on target at a higher speed with smaller surface area so they penetrate better. Recoil should be mentioned. This is the hardest kicking ammo you will likely ever shoot. They sound like a high powered rifle when they go off. They are so strong I will bet you will take your gun all apart like I did after shooting them just make sure I didn't bust anything. I didn't bust anything. I had shot 3" hypersonics pryor and liked them in #4shot. The 3" kick more than competitors 3 1/2" ammo but nothing scary. The 3 1/2' kicks more than a elephant rifle. 2 1/4 oz. turkey loads are kid stuff compared to these. You won't notice the recoil while shooting at a honker but patterning you will feel it. I recomend these cause I think this load is probably the most effective steel 60+ yard goose slayer.
