    Ok, I cant imagine the amount of BS I may receive for this question but here goes. I don't have the time and don't want to take the time to re-load so what can I use as a factory back pocket shell? For everyone thinking they are a purists and only use "legal trap loads" good for you but for those of us that need a little more help what suggestions do you have? Currently I have been shooting Federal Pheasant #6. The purpose for these shells would be the occasional turkey shoot or fun shoot (35+ yards back).

    Maybe you shouldn't shoot so heavy a load. It's affected your spelling skills. d:eek:)

    I believe the Fiocchi golden Pheasant loads are nickel plated.

    We now check ammo for the public shoots at the AGC. 7.5-9 1200fps max.

    Roach, guess that's what I get for typing this up after a few beers and forgetting to hit spell check.
