    I have read that with 1 oz loads they get tighter patterns with more speed. Has anyone done an research per speed vs pattern with the same choke.

    Not much difference in pattern size in the 1100 to 1300 fps range. HMB

    i am still learning new tricks, but . why would you want a different speed for different amount of shot? i know the less the shot the easer to get more fps. it would look like to me , if you keep 7/8--1--1 1/8 at the same fps your lead would be the same. you then only consider the distance if you are good with 7/8 oz of shot or need more because your pattern is thiner at a longer distance. thanks

    Different speed for singles & caps. I stay in the gun much better with 1 oz loads & I have a bad back & 1 less lb of recoil is helpful.

    Light shot load and fast speeds are nice.

    3/4 Oz at 1350 go "Ooh and ahhh" but you need a full choke

    7/8 at 1300 also very nice esp if you have problems with recoil.

    Top shooters will have different preferences.

    These may give you good practice and skill enhancement
