What in you guys opinion is the better budget non-toxic shot shell ammo?

Me and a few friends from here in okmulgee will be hunting some of the public land and it has been so long since i bought non-tox i dont really even know whats out there. Most of us are college students with part time jobs so we really on a budget.

Thanks for your input.

Depends also on what gauge and if you want 2 3/4, 3", or 3 1/2".

I use Remington Sportsman in 3" and 2 3/4". It is at reasonable price.

Winchester Xpert has been good to me. I've also used the Dry-lok, but it's a little more expensive than the Xpert.

You said you worked @ Wal-Mart right?
The Remington Sportsmen load in 3" 1 1/4oz load with #2 #1 shot works well on ducks.
Winchester X-perts are just as good & you can find them in #3 shot.

They should run around $10-$11.00 a box of 25 rounds.

I highly recommend you shoot at least a 3" shell- 1300 fps & a minimum of 1 1/4oz of shot.
I been shooting steel & other non-toxic since they first can out over 20 years ago.
This load combo kills good out to 45 yards.

Let me know how your pheasant hunt comes out. I'm thinking of heading to western Ks after rifle season is over.

I have also used the Xper and Dry-lok with great success in both 2 3/4 and 3". I found a killer deal at a gun show some years back in Cali and was able to get them for like $5 a box and cleaned them out. I have about 10 boxes left of the 30 or so I picked up.
