    Use 1 1/8 oz #8 @ 1145 fps thru' IM choke for the second shot. That'll work for the first shot also----------or if you're sure you can load 'em in the right order in the heat of battle, 1 oz #8 is plenty for the first shot.

    ps----if you use two different loads, recommend they be different colored hulls. Helps you keep 'em in the right order.

    I just knew a guy with an A5 was gonna ding a guys K gun today. It makes me cringe. Luckily it didnt. I wont shoot doubles b.c I am afraid that might happen. I would feel bad.....and not be able to pay for the guys expensive gun.

    Remington 1100 Classic Trap. It has a deflector and I use an IM or M choke, depending on the load, weather, how I feel, etc. 1oz 8s for both shots, or if I feel like it, 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2s for the second shot. I see little difference in the loads or scores as a result. I've even used 7/8 oz 8 1/2s for the first shot, although some light 7/8 oz loads won't cycle the action reliably like the 1oz or 1 1/8 loads do. My empties usually land just to the right and in front of my right foot.

    I don't use an auto, but the most often answer here is at least go to 2 3/4 DE loads for the first shot and 3 DE loads for the 2nd. I use 7/8 oz of #9s for the first and 1 oz of #8s for the 2nd in an O/U. Then, the Doubles champion a few years back at the Grand American was Mike Mazzucchi of CA, shooting a 390 Beretta with a choke of .018"....breakemall...Bob Dodd
