To say there are many flash in the pan gimmicks in the outdoor community is a gross understatement. So when I heard about the multi colored shot shell company known as Spectra Shot, I was a little skeptical. But having shot 4 cases of Spectra Shot #2 loads during the 2013-2014 Texas Waterfowl Season, all I can say is that Spectra Shot is the real deal. Incredibly dense loads with the knock down power serious waterfowlers demand. While every duck hunter would prefer to shoot ducks over their decoys at 15 yards, we know that often times that is far from reality. By the end of the season my hunting parties were routinely killing ducks an average distance of five to ten yards farther than we normally would even attempt to kill birds.
Spectra Shot cycled flawlessly in both semi auto and pump shotguns. In 1,000 rounds fired, we never had a single misfire. The round holds a tight pattern relative to other loads on the market and we have tried them all. The other thing that stood out was the decreased number of cripples we saw in the 2013-2014 season. I’m not sure who was more impressed with Spectra Shot- me or my lab Belle. If a duck was hit, it went down fast and hard. It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity to test a product in the field and be able to give a good and honest review. I believe 100% in Spectra Shot and look forward to shooting their shot shells exclusively in coming seasons.
