    My favorite shells:

    28 gauge target loads with #8 hard shot.

    These work for Skeet, 5 Stand, Sporting Clays, Quail, and Doves.

    20 bore: 2 3/4"  Brenneke slugs for serious social occasions.

    12 bore: 2 3/4 "  Brenneke slugs for serious social occasions

    I have other favorites as well for instance :

    .410, 2 1/2" hull reloaded with popcorn kernels instead of lead pellets. These work well ridding a barn of pigeons, feral cats, and other pests. Idea being, kernels are more friendly to structure and equipment.

    You don't pop off a heavy load in a structure where there is a $300,000 piece of farm machinery, just because pigeons are pooping from the rafters/beams above.

    Tools for tasks....

    Hmmm, 60% "premium steel" and 40% Death Stars.

    They should work well if the "Flite Stopper" pellets fly straight.

    They do, and they pattern well.  It's a load worth trying out.
