    I just read on another thread that back in the old days the std load was 1 1/4oz. What year did the maximum shot load dial back to 1 1/8oz?

    I know in Bunker it was semi recently(late 70s), but curious about ATA. Thanks!

    I think it was mandated in the 30s, can't recall the exact year though.
