    I was wondering how do people like the 8 and a halfs for 16 to 20 yards?

    On a non windy day, 8.5s are awesome from the 16s. You may even want to switch to 1 oz loads. YMMV Omaha

    Works great. One ounce of 8.5 is super from the 16 yard line.

    My daughter uses them from 19, and they work fine.

    No problem. . .and

    and no advantage in the ten flats of 1 1/8 oz Federal Papers I shot to see if there was. I doubt if one ounce is any different, since there are enough pellets in one ounce of 8's at those distances (unless you are trying something tricky with chokes which has never worked for me either.)

    Thanks for the advice guys. Where do you get 8.5's? I reload 1 ounce of 8's for 16's and for my handicap which is 20(first year shooter). They work just fine. I like 1 ounce loads for anything less than 24 yards. Where can i aquire some 8.5 lead?
