I've been using 3.5" Black Clouds in my Mossberg 535 with good success on geese for three seasons, I use BB size shot and the original full choke, and get first round kills to 50 yards. I've seen Blindside shells for sale for a bit but never tried them, they do have a slightly heavier payload, at 100 fps slower, but I'm primarily concerned about patterning. Anyone used/patterned both? I know that what works for others may not work for me, but I'm hoping to find some sort of consensus before I drop 45$ on a box of untried ammo. I'm also considering dropping to #2 shot if anyone has any thoughts on that. Thanks for the input in advance fellas.
