I ran out of #8 shot and only have 7 1/2 available. I shoot 1 oz of #8, 15.7 of clays, Win WAA12SL wad and CCI 209M or Fed 209A primers for 1125FPS.

I never see anyone on here talking about 1 OZ. of 7 1/2. Anyone shooting it? GaryL.

My favorite load of all! Sling them through a mod choke and they will break things out as far as I can see the targets. Have won many times using a 1 ounce load and don't have the headache or flinch caused by the big boy loads.

I am currently using Solo 1000, rem primer, and a DR green 1 oz wad in a AA or STS hull and they are soft shooting but pattern very good. Probably not a published recipe but I stumbled around and tried it and liked it.

When I shoot skeet...and yes I do it for practice not competition...I use 7/8 ounce loads and lately have even had fun playing with 3/4 ounce loads which sound like party favors but break the targets nicely. Not as good as the 7/8 though.

Try a 7/8 load sometime...you will be suprised. AA or STS hull, win209, TGT12 or equivalent, 18 grains of clays or near it.

Neil Winston did some extensive testing of 1 oz. 7 1/2 from 27 yds. and, correct me if I'm wrong, found that even if you're dead center on the target you could still fail to get a break. Is that reason enough not to use them?

Ok, just in case they aren't fishing and/or there are truly newbies reading this post:

call for target...
keep eye on target...
pull trigger...
follow through...
watch target break...

Nowhere in that is there anything about shot size. Shoot what you've got - keep shot size out of your head!

I've used them for quite a few years with as good results as 1 1/8, although, if I was a long yardage shooter, I would probably use full loads.
