    Either will do. There won't be much difference between them. Since you have a penchant for open chokes, try the IM first.

    My preference for 7/8 oz loads has been towards the tighter chokes. I usually use a Full choke, even at the 16 yard line, but have had decent results even with a modified. Use what you have confidence in, since there isn't all that much difference in performance between the two you mentioned. Patterning the gun with YOUR loads and chokes would be a better idea like FlaLagarto suggested.

    Been shooting 7/8 oz. for years, and for the last five, with my fixed-choke Perazzi combo. Full choke works very well with 7/8 oz. at any range, and if they don't smoke every time I break them, I don't care. They wind up in parts, and parts is parts.

    Use the same choke as before but to be safe and so you have confidence ... pattern them to be sure.

    Over the weekend I picked up a flat of Fed. 7/8 #8's, the price seemed right, $36.50 out the door.
    I tried them yesterday...OUTSTANDING.
    I shot a round of Singles...a 24, then I shot a set of Slid's...5@16yds, 5@20yrds, 5@23yrds ect. once more 24,
    Then I shot a round of Handicap @ 26yrd....A 23. I had a bit of wind to deal with, But the lost target were 100% ME.

    My Ljutic seemed to like them, The recoil was very light.
    I could not tell the difference in target break between the 7/8, & 1.oz.
    I wish I had found this ammo a long time ago.

    Buster sir ... were they acquired from Wally World and what part of the country are you hailing from and if possible if you still have the receipt do you have the Wally Word sku# from the receipt?

    I would love to get 20 or 30 flats of this load for bunker trap.
