The 16 yard line is much more forgiving than the 27, so my vote is not too much difference. Handicap is a whole different ballgame once you get back there.1.125oz has more pellets than the 1oz. So with the same choke you'll get a denser pattern from the 1.125oz. Through your full choke you probably won't notice a difference in your score at the 16 yard line so it's really not worth thinking about.
At long yardage handicap 1oz of pellets is going to put you at a disadvantage. 1.125oz patterns back there are already at their limit (or a hair passed).
The way I look at that is 1 1/8 oz of #8 is 461 pellets..1 oz of #8 lead shot has about 410 pellets.
1-1/8 oz of #7-1/2 lead shot has about 393 pellets.
What is the ATA speed limit for 1/2oz of 9s? Asking for a friend!The way I look at that is 1 1/8 oz of #8 is 461 pellets..
This topic always goes the same way, and it’s the same every time, ......someone wants to know the difference in pattern and effectiveness between 1 1/8 oz and 1 oz. “Not much”, they say. Then someone says they use 7/8 oz and don’t notice much difference between that and 1 oz. With that logic, you’ll eventually end up shooting 12 pellets.
To @Colorado 2018, if you don’t see much difference between 1 1/8 and 1 oz., then use 1 1/8 and it’ll pay off in targets even if you don’t always realize it.
1. Less costly reloadsI still don't understand why some practice with 1oz loads or 7/8s then use 1 1/8s in a shoot. 1 1/8s all day ever day.
