    STS Hull, 16gr Clays, Green Duster/Winchester Pink/Claybuster 1oz wads + Win209 or the STS primer. Nice and light - use the same load for skeet.

    Top Gun and/or Estate Hull, 16.5 grs. of 700X,, Fed. 209A primer, 12S0 (or clone) wad and 1 oz. of # 9 shot. Approx. 1175 fps.

    It's a good warm weather load for 16 yd. targets and the 1st shot in doubles.

    What is the advantage of small shot at 16's? Do you use a more open choke?

    tripod, the advantage is that you can keep the pellet count up, even higher, while still loading reduced weight; eg, 7/8 oz of #9s has more pellets than either 1 oz of #8s or 1 1/8 oz of 7 1/2s. The disadvantage is that they will lose effectiveness on distant shots. That's why they are considered specifically advantageous for skeet, short trap, and short sporting shots. There's no need to change chokes for pellet size.....Bob Dodd

    BDodd,

    I can see that you would not want to change your chokes with your 7/8 oz load, but how about if you load 1 1/8 oz of #9s? Would a skeet choke for 1st shot doubles and an IC for 16s give you a dense enough bigger pattern for more room for error?

    I guess those 100 straights I have seen Bob Dodd shoot with the 7/8 OZ load of #9's looked as good as any other 100 straights on the board. Bob knows that if he doesn't break them all it's not the loads fault. That's the diffrence that Bob has and many other shooters do not. He has confidence in the load do to his success with it and not having a weak mind and questioning the load every time he misses a target. The recoil of the 7/8 ounce load may also have something to do with his success. Hard to know exactly what the truth is but one thing is certain. If you can't break 100 straight with 7/8 ounce of 9's then the chances are you aren't breaking 100 straights anyway. I don't shoot them but I don't shoot many 100 straights with my loads either. My thoughts ... Bob is just my example. Jeff

    Jason, Well, sure, if you want even more pellets then load 1 oz or 1 1/8 oz and you'll have a remarkable cloud of the little boogers. The point, though, is that, up close, as in skeet, singles trap, 1st shot of doubles, and so on, you really don't need 7 1/2s or even 8s so why not have 512 #9s in a 7/8 oz load with reduced recoil and a free load of shot in every 5th shell than 409 #8s in 1 oz or 388 #7 1/2s in 1 1/8 oz loads? Even 7/8 oz of 8 1/2s will exceed the number of pellets (420) of the 1 oz of 8s or 1 1/8 oz of 7 1/2s. So, 7/8 oz of 9s or 8 1/2s will deliver more pellets than standard loads, with softer recoil whether your guns fit like a glove or not, and will save cash. Where's the flaw? I've had raw beginners experience the 27 yard line and break targets with 7/8 oz of 9s - not smoke balls but break them. I also watched a skilled shootist break 18/25 from 30 yards with a .410 cal. skeet gun with fixed chokes and skeet loads of #9s; Martinez (CA) Gun Club, 1978.

    Jeff, you're not getting a free cup of coffee for that sloppy stuff! <;-)

    The smallest shot size I want for trap is 8's. If you have to shoot 9's my advise would be to shoot fast.
