    Saw these (somewhat expensive) Winchester paper loads on another site and bought 'em.
    I am thinking they are Turkey loads for the few who have the self discipline
    to shoot head shots only at 35 yards or LESS.
    Anyone else got any ideas re: purpose of this load?
    Thanks, olde pharte

    Could be a shell from the days of the old pidgeon shoots. Other than that I don't know what good an 1 1/4 of #9's would be. BYG

    They are more than likely live bird loads. There are guys who use them at high elevations. Either that or a cheating skeet shooter load.

    Besides aforementioned, a faction of crow shooters used 9's. I doubt their needs generated the change over.

    One hell of a dove and quail shell. 3.75drams x 1.25 #9 will smoke either. picked up a case for doves last year as these are the lightest loads that will cycle my old A5 magnum.
