10 Best Steel Duck Loads Right Now

10 Best Steel Duck Loads Right Now

Non-toxic waterfowl loads were universally scorned by hunters when they were first introduced after the lead shot ban in 1991, and for good reason. For the most part they patterned and performed poorly. It didn't help that a lot of the people pushing non-toxic loads weren't exactly hunter friendly, either.

Fortunately, times and technology have changed. Not only have hunters learned to trust the limits of steel, manufacturers like Remington have dramatically improved the performance of non-toxic loads. These days, waterfowlers have lots of great options for loads to stuff in their guns. Even the low-end steel loads are effective duck killers if a shooter knows his limits. Here's a look at some of the best steel duck loads on the market.
