    Everyone thinks I'm nuts, but they're good for skeet shots, 16 yard trap, short handicap (to at least 20 yards) trap, first shot of doubles trap, and several 5 stand and sporting birds that are close shots. I've posted several 100s with 7/8 oz of 9s from the 16 yard line and truly enjoy the light felt recoil. Know that there are 512 #9 sized pellets in a 7/8 oz load.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    I sprinkle a couple of teaspoons full on my Cheerios. Slice up a banana and add some milk. Gives you good roughage and does wonders in reducing cholesterol. Ed

    I won a box of 9s in a raffle. Picked them up by mistake and shot them at 21 in our league. I dropped one but didn't even notice the difference in the breaks on the other 24.

    I would not hesitate to use #9 shot for the first bird in doubles.

    Coach, In warmer weather those 3-3/4 dram 9's are the perfect shell for a single barrel race when shooting flyers.

    21 yards and you know which box the bird is coming from. All you have to do is keep it in the ring. Not as easy as it sounds. LOL

    Those shells pictured to the left of the 9's are a very good shell. They also work in conjuction with a ring.

    As in when some moron tells you to "take off that ring and hand it over". That is when those 9's work the best.

    I've broken some good scores shooting an ounce of 9s for singles. 100s included which ain't bad for a stoved up part time shooter. Hap
