Shoot 1oz and save your shot. You can shoot 1 1/8, but from what I have experienced there is no difference in crushing the target with either loads at the 16 yard line. Bryan

Leo is the "Biggest Winner". He is recoil sensitive and shoots 1 1/8. Once I start beating him I'll drop down to 1 oz and give him a chance.

Practice with 7/8 or 1 oz if cost is important. With ATA targets at $23-33/100, the only reason to shoot less than 1 1/8 oz is if you cannot handle the recoil.

I shoot 1 oz. reloads at practice and 1 1/8 oz. factory shells for registered. Not sure why I shoot the 1 1/8 ...same scores with both, but thats what I do. IMO, from the 16, there is ZERO difference as long as you shoot a IM choke or tighter. Pattern board tell me the same thing.

I saw an increase in my scores going to 1oz loads. Turns out my gun patterns a whole lot better at 1 oz 1200fps loads than 1 1/8. I went from breaking targets to smoking them.

I too shoot 1 oz. reloads at practice ( reclaimed shot no less ) and 1 1/8 oz. factory shells for registered.

I like the savings of the reloads plus the fatigue factor. I can shoot 200 practice targets and not feel any affects at all. It makes concentrating easier.

Harlan, said-why would you enter a 100 target event & shoot 12 less shells. That is the equivalent in shell loss between 11/8 oz & 1 oz.--I'm as recoil sensitive as anyone, if I'm competitive in an event I'll stick with 11/8.

I cannot tell any difference in my measly scores when I shoot 7/8 or 1 1/8.. the 1 1/8 seems to smoke them better but a break is a break..

I shoot 1oz #8 for singles and doubles, and an occasional round of caps. My standard caps load is 1 1/8oz #7 1/2 @ 1145fps.

If I shoot 300 or 400 1 1/8oz loads in a day, my shoulder is sore the next day and I'm paying more attention to it than to my shooting, and my second day scores show it.

I should mention that I sent my unsingle barrel to Kerry Allor and had him turn it into a dedicated 27 yard handicap barrel. For singles, I honestly cannot tell the difference in most breaks between 7/8, 1 and 1 1/8oz loads with this barrel.

I started shooting 1-1/8 oz loads and had a friend (God Rest HIs Soul) give some 1 oz #9 shot shells and they worked good. I have since gone to 1 oz 81/2 shot and now crush the birds on the 16 yd line and first shot in doubles.

40- 50 more chances for a chip.

I use 1 1/8 for registered singles and caps. 1 oz for both doubles right now and 1 oz for practice.

BTW: I have been paying $26-$28.00 for 100 registered targets.


I hope those shooting against me are using 1oz:)
