    spanky, Gamaliel's in Ky. has Lawerence brand 25 pound bags of #6 thru #9's for less than $40 a bag. Cost you 6 more dollars a bag to ship to your home in groups of 2 bags at a time. Breake-m all Jeff

    Thanks for the tip. I use a great dealer but he doesn't carry 7's. Thanks again, Spank.

    There will be shot at the Cardinal Classic 8/17 thru 8/21 AJ Brenner, Fin Feather Fur, Sportsman's Den and possibly RS Shooting Supplies from Michigan.

    AJ Brenner seems to have 5s-6s-7s-7.5s-8s in stock when he comes as a lot of buddy shooters come to stock up, and he also has a good supply of powders, like Herco-Longshot, plus all the other brands.

    A terrific selection of WADS and best prices on the grounds, usually located west of the Central Entry Building, West of the Outdoor Patio.

    If you want a large quantity of something call him at 419-583-7133 and he will bring it the shoot for pick-up. Very accomodating.

    Tell him Gary Bryant sent you.

    I shoot #7 steel (?!), if that's what your asking for... I load .75 oz = 298 +/-... therefore 298/3x5=500 +/-... if you're asking for 1.25oz of #7 steel.

    I agree with Jay. #7 I feel is a steel shot not lead. I do load lead also, but have never seen a #7 lead. Be it so, according to a pellet count I have shows # 7 steel at 420 count and lead at 300 per oz. on the other hand #7 1/2 has it at 490 steel, and 350 lead. Hope this helps.

    "I agree with Jay. #7 I feel is a steel shot not lead. I do load lead also, but have never seen a #7 lead."

    Just for information purposes #7 Lead shot from the link to a chilled shot table that I posted in my last post. In a 1-1/8 oz load 336 pellets, in 1-1/4 oz that the OP requested 374 Pellets;

    In 7 1/2 1-1/8 oz load lead has 388 pellets, in 1-1/4 oz has 431 pellets.

    Ask the feller from Kentucky that won the GAH today. I'll bet he knows.

    SS why would the gentleman from Kentucky know?? Just what are you inferring?? I hope you aren't saying that he was using an illegal shot size in the GAH.

    If not why would you make a statement like that?????

    Ballistic Products.com is a great website and has all the info want regarding #7 shot. In my opinion, #7 nickel plated shot is the kitties knickers for pheasant!

    The chart I have was copied of an old Shootin' Trap or Shotgun Sports magazine. It lists 374 pellets in a 1 1/4 oz load of lead #7 shot.

    1oz 298, 1 1/16oz 317, 1 1/8oz 336, 1 1/4oz 374, 1 3/8oz 411, 1 1/2oz 449,
    1 5/8oz 486, 1 3/4oz 523, 1 7/8oz 561. The 1oz and 1 1/16oz values were calculated.

    Great shot size for upland hunting especially in the smaller gauges.

    Bigben,
    Thanks for the info..............really have not seen or even heard of #7 in lead. I do use #7 steel. Grew up in PA and used many lead sizes, but none in #7.
