    Do they have a dram equivalent? Barring that, I think you'd need to call Fiocchi.

    I`m sorry I didn`t put down all the info . They are 2 3/4 inch - 2 1/2 dram #8 shot . 3 boxes are the same 2 1/2dram eqivalent but High brass #7 1/2 shot where 7 boxes are low brass . All the hulls are yellow with a pigeon in black .

    If they are 2&1\2 DE-- 7\8oz about 1200 to 1220 fps.----2&1\2 DE 1oz about 1150 fps. Brass height has little bearing on velocity, usually has more to do with shot weight. DE & shot weight together give a better estimate of muzzle velocity. Most skeet loads are 7\8oz about 1200 fps. This is for LEAD shot, steel is a whole different ball game. Ross Puls

    Thanks Ross , I`m looking at new shells for sale and the 7/8 oz is listed at 1210 fps so I guess thats what I have here for both types low and high brass since both are 2 1/2 dr . Very pretty hulls for collectors . They are in the older white boxes .
