    Yes. 7/8 ounce is 24 grams, or close enough as to make no difference.

    Your gun will explode and cause the end of the world!
    7/8 oz is only 3% more than 24 gr ... I seriously doubt that you can tell the difference in speed and/or pressure.

    not being a reloader myself but i will venture a guess and say you will get fewer pellets.

    If you go from 7/8 Ounce to 24 Grams, you will have converted to the Metric System of measurement. Then your pressures may be expressed in KiloPascals or Bar. Velocity will change to Meters per Second and you will also notice the Targets dimension will now be expressed in Millimeters. Screws everything up. :)

    Realistically, a few less pellets, a touch less pressure, and a slight increase in velocity would be the expected result. What you actually get might not conform to the norm.

    Oh, forgot to mention the change from Grains to Grams. Rough stuff that Metric system.

    Maybe no heart, but I have a brain and the pictures to prove it! No....Wait, I do have a heart. Shows up in a CT Scan I had a few months ago. That theory didn't last too long.
