Have been asked down to have a shot at my local field and game branch. As I have said before I am not much of a shotgun shooter.I am going to buy a case of shells for all the boys and am just wondering what is a good size load and brand for clay pigeon. My gun is just a Winchester 101 with fixed chokes of full and modified, so if anyone has had success with a certain brand and size using a similar setup I would like to hear.

Most ammo is way better than most shooters :cry:

As this seems to be a social shoot rather than an International FITASC competition, I would let your wallet be your guide.

If you get some 7½ or 8 shot size with any recognised brand - Remington, Winchester, Federal, Estate, Olympia are US Brands,
you won't go wrong, if the crowd are anti-French don't get Nobel.

I'd go for 1 oz loads if you can find them, they smack the clays not you.

You may be a tad overchoked, esp. for targets under 20 yards, but that may not be something you can easily change ? If you hit a target under 20 yds witha full choke it wil be VERY dramatic and satisfying :lol:

Have a blast

Roger
