I like Terry Wieland. In the latest issue of Grays he picks his favorite factory shotshell loads. It's a good short read.
I always wonder how an expert goes about picking favorite loads.
I pick my loads based on how they look, feel, and smell. I like high brass shells with nice crimps, a good texture to the plastic, and that smell nice when I open the action and the lingering smoke wafts back toward me. That's all I've got to go on since I can't tell one bit of difference in how they work.
I wonder how Wieland picks his favorites (?).
By the amount of B&P shells mentioned, they probably supply him.
