kjs, as long as the speed is around 1300 and the gun is reasonably clean, they'll run just fine.

My Supersport cycles the 7/8 fine, as does the M2. Tried them for kicks in the SuperBlack Eagle and failed.



Thanks but the guns aren't mine. He likes to load what he loads but has tried several things.

I see Gander Mountain has 12 gauge, 7/8 ounce, #8s for sale for $5.27/box. I'd prefer #9s for skeet. That's the best price I've seen for 12 gauge 7/8 ounce loads. Alas, in-store only.

I shoot the 7/8 oz. loads with cylinder chokes and have good breaks and reduced recoil and cost. I shoot one ounce on occasion and my scores really don't vary a bit. Like someone has said earlier, it is about cost savings as well as comfort in shooting.
