The problem with the bigger shot sizes is that there are fewer (but larger) pellets in the pattern. In other words, you may have holes in the pattern that a clay pigeon on edge could slip through. You don't need the power of a larger pellet to break a clay, it just has to get hit with some pellets!

And yeah, I am aware that it usually requires a hit by more than one pellet to break a clay pigeon!! If you don't believe that, go to the range and look at some of the unbroken birds that guys thought they missed!
