#8s have fewer pellets but heach pellet his harder. Can't prove which is best but the better shooters seem to all use #9.

Seems like the issue of #9 vs #8 shot comes up repeatedly. If you are shooting for fun/practice and are buying cheapo factory shells (Win Universals, Gun Clubs, etc.) from places like WalMart then your selection is likely to be limited to #8 shot. Shoot 'em up. But if you are shooting registered targets (and don't reload) buy some Win AA's or Rem STS shells, #9 shot.

If you reload (as I do), it's 3/4 oz of #9 for practice, and 7/8 oz for registered targets.

I seriously doubt if you could find a single AAA shooter who prefers #8 shot in the 20 ga.

That a fantastic number! How many of them did you make NSSA minimums?


Would love to see your answer on this question....

But if you have the choice of #8s or #9s, choose #9s.

I need some 20 ga #9 shells and don't see them anywhere.


I see more 20 gauge #9s for sale recently than I have for several years. I just picked up a couple of flats for $4.99 a box and free shipping*.

*I didn't really need them, but at that price delivered I couldn't resist. Oink!
