The scatter guns are just as picky as .22 or center fire weapons as far as shells go. Yesterday we started with Federal 2.75" #8 shot in field loads. My mossey 835 along with about half dozen other guns loved em. Great patterns and tight. Today after about 10 rounds we ran out of Federal and switched to Winchester 2.75" 7 1/2 shot, again field loads. One of our rules is every body shoots the same ammo, and ours only. My gun along with a lot of the others from yesterday puked. Mine an a couple others had problems with extracting also. Chumps from yesterday turned into Champs with the Winchesters. One mans trash is anothers treasure. I won two rounds early with the Federals. Later rounds with the Winchester and I sucked ......... :eek:

We shot the Winchester AAA .410 loads with 9 shot. Previous years we used Federal .410s with little success. This year there were multiple winners with the .410. They put a lot more pellets in the cards and good patterns.

I am not proficient on Shot Shells, only using turkey loads and all those seem to do ok, Fed, Win, Rem, and Fiocchi. Someone donated the Win AAA 410s otherwise we would not have bought them, you are correct in they are High $$

The Clay shooters, the good ones anyway, reload their own and generally smoke all the other shooters. Tony, who brings the tower and thrower only shoots Trap, and other diciplines with the clay birds. He is good. Sometimes he will shoot some cards when the clay shoot is over but has never done anything with the Factory Loads.
