There may well have been less pellets in the reload too. Many MEC machines throw light drops of shot. Mine are about 1/16 to 1/32 light.

And like Joe said, other than pure count, hatdness and restriction factor in too.

The good news though, is, that's a sweet load in either gauge. And depending on what one's use is, both are very enjoyable. At the skeet distance of 21 yards, one will never be justified blaming a miss on either load!

3/4 oz. is a creampuff in an 8 lb. target gun. And a great performer as well in a svelte, carrying around, hunting gun.

That is what I have found in the MEC bars, I spent yesterday with my dremel making my MEC bars drop what they are supposed to. My 7/8 ounce bars were dropping 3/4 ounce, My 3/4 bar was dropping just over 1/2 ounce, my 1 ounce bar was throwing 7/8 ounce, and my 1 1/8 bar was dropping 1 ounce.

I have found that on my MEC when using 7 1/2 and 8 shot the drops are light but when using 8 1/2 and 9 the drops are heavy.I mostly load for skeet so all is good.
