    I see that Winchester offers light shells with 1 1/8 ounces of #8.5 shot (Winchester AA1285 1 1/8oz 8.5# 1145fps). Can someone guide me to other similar factory loads? Yes, I know I can load it myself, but I'm lazy and would prefer factory ammo.

    Thanks for any/all information.

    I believe that Fiocchi makes 8.5 shells.
