A.J. Hoffman, owner of Sodak Sports, holds two boxes of shotgun shells that differ in weight. The Fiocchi box is a lighter weight load, which hunters would have used earlier in the pheasant hunting season. The Winchester box is a heavier load, which hunters will use now as the birds' feathers have thickened with colder weather and the birds take flight sooner, making the hunter's shot longer.
