    I prefer 10 1/2 personally. They seem to fit my feet better.

    Have a little fun. Load your regular speed loads and use 10's. 10's are a great first shot in doubles and will work fine from 16 to 22 yards for fun and practice shooting. I've run 25's with 10's from the 22 yard line... just goofing off.

    From the 16, if you do your part, you will smoke them.....again--- if you know what you're doing.

    Have fun and as I said, 10's are great for the first shot in doubles.

    I've often admitted here that I developed a social skeet shooting load with 7/8 oz of 9s and accidentally discovered it was murder on trap singles, 1st shot of doubles, and close sporting shots as well as the skeet. I like 9s....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    I mix 8-1/2 and 10 to get a 9-1/4 equivalent. Works great from Memorial Day till the week prior to Labor Day.

    Try 12 shot. I believe that is what .22 LR Birdshot shells are loaded with.
