I don't reload, am looking for a very light load for first shot at doubles.
The AA load is much slower and MUCH less recoil than the 7/8th Top Gun.Federal Top gun also has a 7/8 oz target load TG12EL8 - 1200 FPS, there is a lady at our club that shoots them all the time at the 16 yd line and she shoots them well I might add.
Yep. If you need a 7/8oz load, load it yourself. I haven’t found anything that are nearly as effective as my reloads.Has anybody ever pondered the fact that a 7/8 oz factory load has 25% less shot that a 1 1/8 oz factory load, yet this is not reflected in pricing?
Just food for thought
I think that if you like 7/8 oz load you should strongly consider reloading.
I make my 7/8 oz shells on a Lee load all because I don't go through that many of them and even at the not so good pricing for reloading supplies in my area, I can make a box for $4.50.
Just something to think about

On the down side, They're also double the cost!
Absolutely the truth right there!! A buddy of mine shot these (in 20 ga, not 12) during a tournament in Stockton one year, and it was awful!Low recoil, low noise, low score.
410 shells, with 1/2 oz shot, have less than 50% of the shot in a 12 ga shell, and almost always cost more than 12 ga (within the same brand line). They produce much less of them, so price is higher.Has anybody ever pondered the fact that a 7/8 oz factory load has 25% less shot that a 1 1/8 oz factory load, yet this is not reflected in pricing?
Before anyone can tell you what factory 7/8 oz load is best, you might want to consider your supply sources. What stores do you frequent or do you shop online? Checkout your supplies inventory of the brands available. You are looking for something not commonly carried by most and your US factory offerings are going to range from slim to none. You are probably going to find imports with more offerings, but who carries them. Another negative is most imports are offered in faster velocities designed for bunker trap, perhaps not for you.I don't reload, am looking for a very light load for first shot at doubles.
