    Anyone here use a 28ga to hunt ruffed grouse? If so, what shot size do you use when using the 28ga?

    7.5 shoots just as good as a 20 for grouse. I actually think the pattern is superior. Bill

    Number 8s work well for ruffed grouse early in the season, 7-1/2s for the fully feathered later season rockets! That, regardless of ga. used!

    Remington 11-48 28 ga skeet with Briley tubes. Reload of West Coast #7 shot. Approximately the same number of pellets in 3/4 oz. as 1 oz. of #6 shot.

    Esetter's 28 ga side by side that he has listed on here would be a great grouse gun.

    I have used one for grouse for yrs.

    8's or 7 1/2 in the bottom bbl. 6's in the top. 7/8 oz reloads @ 1280 fps.
    Devastaing results if you are on target. I hunt w/flushing dogs and use IC & L. Mod or Mod. chokes.
