I’m sure I read on the shootclays forum that many rates the 21g over the 28g said the 21s gave a great pattern etc :)

Off shooting again tomorrow will try a few more out!

I must be missing something,  I grab a buggy for of the cheapo federal when the grocery store marks it down to $15 a case.   I shoot clays, birds, raccoons,  ducks, squirrels,  bottles, televisions all with the same 7 and 8 shot.  Does the wads/ cases/ prices really make all that of a difference? I know many of you seem serious about this shell for this bird and this for squirrels.  But does it really make a difference?   Heck I still have a couple cases. I can hold out until turkey season is over and get more clearance cases.

Some take it more seriously than others. I seem to get the same results with 6’s as I do with 8’s on clays, and shoot either 6’s or 5’s for game. 

Price will play its part in many choices also.

What Scully said.

The people who are serious/concerned/paranoid about shot size/choke are often the ones who have not yet realised that it is their shooting that is the problem!

7.5's on the local clay ground simply cause they are the rules, 28g eley vip's in the sxs because they are nice and smooth everything else is whatever the chepaest 32g 5/6 is about. 

E.g right now I'm out having a quiet moment on the rabbits currently have 32g 6 Royal drive fibres in, mainly because they were nearest box I could find 😂

You shoot ducks with 7 or 8 shot? assuming they're close and not testing birds? 

Although we can say some are more fussy, it's well documented that bigger shot sizes will retain more energy at distance. I'm sure a lot of American turkey hunters would use big shot sizes on those birds?

Surely that has a limit? Would you use cylinder choke and 28g 9's on a goose shoot?

No, but I have shot a fair few with Impax 28gm 6’s I the past when not specifically out for geese. 

My post was aimed at people splitting hairs with shot sizes/chokes for pigeon shooting and clays.

100 but that’s USD

100 shells at $15.....oh to live in the land of the free.  We'd be lucky to pick up 50 for $15 on this side of the pond.  And the local Lidl* doesn't sell them, either.

*German supermarket, like Aldi/Trader Joe's.

They are $19.99 normal price.  But after dove season the mark them down.  But that’s only for 8,7.5, and 7.  The cost jumps way up for 6shot.  Supply and demand I guess.

I actually saw a lidi they just built.  I have never been into them.  We have Walmart’s spaced about every two miles.  😂.   Get groceries, tires, and kayak in one trip.

They don’t have the selection that say a gun store has but if your out getting bread and need a box of shells they are alright. You still have to pass a instant background check to buy guns so it’s not any different then a gun store.

Think the general consensus is their 21g are an excellent 21g while the 28g are merely average 28g

I shot today at the ground in Bridgend, Dragon Clay Sports. 

Used Hull comp x 28g 7.5 and we shot 2 rounds. 

First round 38/50. Very happy with that :) 

Second round I used a pick and mix of some other carts, had 35/50. 

 

I was happy with both as I normally shoot rubbish on this ground last few times barely got over 20. 

Today however I am staying at my sister down the road and used his Silver Pigeon, an older 1980’s model. 

 

I bought his and mine and I picked the other one as it had a 3” chamber and steel proof. Kicking myself now thinking I let him have the wrong one 😂
