Which company has plated 1oz 28ga loads? Or are these handoaded?Anonymous said:I usually use #6 when using an ounce and an eighth of shot at 1250 fps or so. It is my favorite prairie grouse and early season/first shot pheasant load. I generally step up to 1 1/4 oz when using #5 or larger shot at about the same speed. I usually use plated #6 shot in the 28 or 1 ounce 20 ga load. I generally use Mod and Mod, ocasionally IC/mod or mod/full depending on ***** and conditions. A little under two months and pheasant season will be upon us.

1300 FPS 11,100 PSI it is a hard hitting load.
Thanks for the clarification. I thought maybe Winchester changed thier 1oz load to plated without me noticing. I feel safe using a 3/4oz or even 11/16 oz load over dogs only if the shot is very hard, so plated is a must from the factory for fat pheasants.uglydog said:Sorry, I had forgotten to log in. The 1 oz load was for the 20 ga. I only use 3/4 oz in the 28. The 1 oz 28 ga loads are real dogs and I have had much better results with the lighter load, especially on pheasants. I handload most my shells, I have used the Federal Premiums with great results and they would be the ones I would recommend for factory loads. I prefer loads in the 1250 fps range and that is nearly 150 fps faster than one can get from the 1 oz 28 ga.
