Anyone have experience with this ammunition in an 870 Express HD? I believe it is loaded with 8 pellets instead of 9.

I had a 870 with a 21" barrel and set up
with mod choke,they would pattern at 6-7
inches at 15 yards.Very soft shooting
and didn't seem to throw flyers,great
ammo for the price.

The same ammo in my mossy 500 with a
18"cylinder bore barrel opens up to
9-10 inches at the same range.With the
limbsaver recoil pad felt recoil is
close to a AR-15 with these loads.

Yes! It is outstanding ammo and I have no idea where to get more.
It functioned in my Benelli Super90, Mossy Jungle Gun and the 590. The shop I bought if from had 10 boxes and no more. They don't remember where they ordered it from and I don't know where to get more, but it patteren well and had sufficient gusto to do what I needed.
I have heard it said that the Super 90 was a light recoiling shotgun (Liars, liars, liars...), mine kicked like a goverment mule. Ergo the reason I tried it, and it tamed the raging Italian for rapid fire shooting. Unfortunately, I had already agreed to sell it when I discovered this.

It works great in my 870. Shooting it back to back with Wolf 00 was like shooting a .223 vs a 30-06. They patterned similarly at the HD-like range I was testing at.
fearless leader- I got mine here: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=202716 None of the local stores around here seem to carry buckshot anymore.

I shoot it in my 20" 870P and it shoots soft and patterns great.
