Using a 1-1/8 oz load of lead #7 shot is a very good long range target load. It has more energy than lead #7-1/2 shot and way more pellets than a 1-1/4 oz load of lead #6 shot or 1-1/2 oz load of lead #4 shot.

1-1/8 oz of lead #7 shot has about 336 pellets.
1-1/4 oz of lead #6 shot has about 281 pellets.
1-1/2 oz of lead #4 shot has about 204 pellets.

I have been known to shoot the same load with #7 shot also....I pretty much shoot #7 shot for my shell in all the game shoots.....

Fed Gold Medal Hull
Fed 209A primer
20 gr Green Dot or 21 Gr Vectan A1

Remington STS or Gun Club hull. Winchester primer Remington SP12 wad 23.5 grains of Unique 1 1/4 oz of #5 or #6 shot. But if I could buy them Federal Hi-Birds #5 shot would be all I shoot.
