    Need more interest in 3/4 oz loads. They will sure do the trick in an economical way. I still have 5000 or so, loaded to about 1280. Not sure why I did that as it isn't necessary in my opinion, next time just 1200 and prob use 8 1/2 shot. Shooting hard 9's, pattern is superb, recoil is non existant. Bet most shooters wouldn't see the difference at 16 if they didn't know what they were shooting. I also would wager that a light, tight load just might sharpen up a shooter.
